Sent over by a reader of 1967beetle.com, this original UK market ’67 Beetle is fantastic. (And, you’ve seen it before) They say a photo is worth a thousand words. With that in mind.. I’ll let Rob take it from here.
“I first saw the ’67 for sale at the Avoncroft Historic VW Show in 1999, with only 50,000 miles on the clock. The car was built on January 12 1967 and sold to Geoffrey Hubert Sheppy by the Volkswagen dealership, Arthur Moore & Sons Ltd. in Great Whitley, Worcestershire. Geoffrey owned it from August 1 1967 all the way up to June 25 1998, when he passed away. As the Service Manager, Donald Reece, had looked after the car so well over the years since first buying the car, Geoffrey left the Beetle to him in his will. Donald Reece was now in his 70s, and only used the ’67 as a second car, until he sold it in October 1999.”
