I’ve looked at literally thousands of Volkswagen Beetles—a lot of them 1967 Beetles. In the process, I’ve purchased scores of Beetles for one purpose or another. It is heartening to find an “honest” Beetle. By “honest”—I mean one that is easily identifiable at almost a glance. This Beetle belongs to Greg Minuskin, a Reader-Contributor of 1967beetle.com.
In my looking at and researching 1967 Beetles, I find that possibly the most rare of the three Models is the Sun Roof Edition. Here is one of those rare Sun Roof Editions—waiting to be driven away by its new owner!
But first, let’s get some important details squared away:
- You know how I am about VINs! All three VINs (spare tire well, tunnel and title) correspond.
- The Beetle for sale has 15,609 miles showing on the Odometer. You can add 100K to that, I’m sure.
- With every vintage vehicle the new owner will discover some things which need refurbishing or repaired. Greg and I looked over the car with that in mind.
- The trunk liner and wiring cover need to be replaced with originals or good reproductions. The ones in the car are home-made.
- The door scrapers and felts need to be replaced.
- Greg tells me that the running boards have some “rippling” in the rubber—this may indicate some rust-bubbles beneath the rubber. In that case, the old rubber would need to be removed, the rust removed and new rubber stretched onto the running boards again.
- The carburetor is not an original VW105-1 but is a good-quality, working unit.
- Also, the front windshield was changed at some point—it is not original German glass.
- However, all other glass IS German Sekurit.
- Greg believes that the car has had one repaint. There are no apparent bubbling spots.
- The black-walled tires are not new but have plenty of tread left. Even the injection mold features still are readily apparent.
