SOLD — L456 Ruby Red ’67 Vert

Spotted on eBay, this L456 ruby red ’67 vert is in respectable condition. I’ve not seen that many of these in person. I do know that ’67 verts are becoming more and more desirable.

There are a few things in the engine, exterior and interior that are not correct. However, they are typical items that are replaced over the years. It would not take much at all to make this car 100%.

This is a great find. I think it's priced to sell.

Yeah, it's a nice one. I think the drivers side fender isn't German. However, it's not hard to find a replacement.

I'm just learning. Is it the position of the horn grille that gives it away? Is there something about the front seats, too? The heat-embossed pleats aren't supposed to go all the way up on a '67? Is this a "one-year-only", also?

It's the stamping of the horn grill yes. All aftermarket fender horn grills are stamped way too far from the end of the fender. And yes. the seats are TMI replacement. From what I know, only Wolfsburg West offers the correct seats where the basket weave go full around the top of the seats. Beauty is in the details.
