Upon seeing photos of this L639 Zenith Blue ’67 SunRoof Beetle, my first words were…”How can this car sell for so little?”
Only a couple of months ago, a L639 Zenith ’67 Blue Sedan sold at Mecum’s auction in Dallas, Texas for $25,000. Although it truly was a nice car, it didn’t hold a candle to this one which is selling for less!
How often do we find a ’67 Beetle that wasn’t wrecked and rusted before the restoration? Well…here’s one. Take a sound car and do a quality classic restoration and the result is a treasure.
I have been privileged to view numerous photos of this car. The color-coded fender beading and running boards really set this car apart from its contemporaries. Besides being a rare SunRoof, complete with everything that was supposed to come on this car from the factory, there are some accessories which add icing to the cake. These include Pop-out Windows, a spectacular Dual-purpose Interior Rear View Mirror, a VW Tissue Container, authentic VW Logo-ed Sill Plates, a Sapphire VI AM-FM Radio with the Rubber Knobs, Narrow Stripe White-walled Tires, Locking Steering Column Ignition, Dust Cover on the Deck lid Latch, an Original European Dealer Badge, Complete Maintenance Records since the car left the showroom floor in Europe, the Original German Sales Papers and even a Tube of Touch-up Paint. Amazing. I’m also proud to mention that one of my restored German oil bath air cleaners resides inside the comforts of the engine bay.

“’67 VW Beetle for sale. Good overall condition. Approximately 1,000 miles on a rebuilt engine and Goodyear tires. Rear pop out windows, storage shelf underneath the dash. May need a new master cylinder (a little sticky, but brakes work just fine), otherwise it is in sound mechanical condition. Interior is a bit rough, and will need some work. This car is ready for a restoration project.”

“An electronic ignition system was added eliminating the need to change points and condenser periodically. The entire brake system was gone through including replacing the shoes, wheel cylinders, hi-pressure hoses and lines. New radial tires, less than three hundred miles ago, new starter motor, complete tune-up including valve adjustment and carburetor. Add shock absorbers and axle boots to the list and we think you will agree with us that upkeep was a high priority. No rust, no crust to worry about either. Heater channels, floor pans and battery tray are all excellent. Lights, wipers and signals all work as well. Yep, the horn goes beep when the button is pushed. The dash remains uncut.”
