’67 Beetle — Road Track, Road Test

“Wonder of wonders, a bigger, stronger engine for the second year in a row.”

This is the first time I’ve ever seen any ’67 Beetle road test literature. You have to love results like 0-60 MPH in 22.5 seconds. Volkswagen of old truly set the standard for life in the slow lane. It might help to enlarge each image below so you’re able to read the article a bit easier.

Interesting the location of the 12 volt sticker. Most 67's I see the sticker is below the dome light switch.

I'm here to tell you that once the 53 Hp engines had some miles on them, they performed better, in my estimation. Once, in our well-broken-in '67 Sedan, loaded with 2 adults, two children (and the little dog) and our gear, I wanted to see what the car would do. Now, we are talking about stock engine, stock carburetion, stock exhaust--stock everything. I let off the accelerator at 90 mph. Even giving some speedometer error, that's much higher than the rated 78 mph top speed, wouldn't you say? And...that's really putting some trust into a car...looking back I get a little nervous at how we'd just strike out on the highway--with the family--in any kind of weather. But, we always got there and back (in the car, too--not being towed, etc.). Yuh gotta luv um! jay
