SOLD — L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle

East Coast pal Chris Vallone’s L620 savanna beige ’67 has actually been featured here at 1967beetle.com a few times during its restoration process. This car originally came to Chris as a true time capsule. During the restoration, Chris added his own flair and style to the interior with close attention to detail. The car is now for sale! It’s a very respectable example of what many consider the best year of the VW Beetle; 1967.

The Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

Eric Shoemaker

I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

25K ? Well i guess that there are people who might pay that price?

Considering that a full pan off restoration cost about $35,000 +, I'd say this one is not a bad deal. Chris is a personal friend, and I know spent $5,000.00 just having the car painted.

We priced at 25k since we do have an appraisal for that amount. Keep in mind, this is what we are asking, I am open to all reasonable offers. Be sure to also look at all the resto photos so you get a sense of the time and effort that goes into our projects. Regards, Chris

I'd also like to add. Here are examples of other restorations from our friends at WCCR. I think Chris's asking price is fair. 1953 RHD Standard. $40,000. http://classicvws.com/sale/53rhd.htm 1956 Standard. http://classicvws.com/sale/blueoval.htm $26,000 1964 Standard. $40,000 http://classicvws.com/sale/64pearlwhite.htm

This is a fantastic '67. Chris has a good name among the best doing restorations. I'd consider this if I had the funds. My best to you Chris and the work you're doing.

Beautiful car. Probably one of the finest '67 VW's in the country. Look closely at each picture and notice the details.

Nice, but surprised to see what appears like a long coil (repainted?) and a non-vacuum distributor. why not flip those out for stock parts? (apologies if I've missed it, looking through a phone at the moment ;) )

Coil is actually brand new, and yeah there is an 009 in there. If anyone would like these changed, no biggie, I can accommodate that.

Beautiful!! We just restored a 63 Ragtop at work, we got 20k in it and it's about 98% finished. So it's not cheap to do this sort of resto. Great job on the bug Chris. -Louie

That's just my taste though I prefer the factory look kinda like Eric. My blue 67 has a 1600 though so it's not 100% factory either. Everyone has different tastes but Savannah Beige is my favorite 67 color.

Chris, don’t deviate away from a stock restoration or else the ’67 posse will come after you. Just kidding. Good luck with the sale, and I still wish I would have got that one before you.
