Proper ’67 Restoration by WCCR

When it comes to period correct restoration work, our friends at West Coast Classic Restoration always come to mind. Lenny Copp is known around the world for his projects. This ’67 he finished not too long ago is definitely worth a mention.

My Good friend Timm Eubanks and I recently completed an interview with Lenny of WCCR. A huge thanks again to Timm for making the drive and shooting photos. #VintageVW

San Diego Automotive Museum

The San Diego Automotive Museum currently has a Vintage VW show on display with a fantastic collection of Vintage Volkswagens. Our good So Cal friend Timm Eubanks attended the event and was kind enough to share the story with 1967beetle.com.

’67 Facts

“We made the car go faster. And the engine go slower.”
The 1967 Volkswagen Beetle’s engine was upsized to 1493-cc (as on Type 3) and 53 horsepower (1200 and 1300 engines continue outside U.S.). Also new were dual-circuit brakes, backup lights, door lock buttons, and a 12-volt electrical system.

Early Volkswagens

“No silhouette in the history of automobiles is as recognizable as that of the long-lived, beloved, all-things-to-all-people VW Beetle. (Nor, as anyone who has ever sat in one can readily attest, is there anything quite like that singular, evocative mingled aroma of oil and plastic that every single Beetle ever made seemed to exude from the moment it left the assembly line.”
