Tim Mossman’s L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle

If you remember Tim Mossman’s ’67 Beetle, you know we’ve mentioned it more than a few times. It’s a nice example of a very original car. Lane Russell has had the privilege of restoring a few German VW engine components for this gem. In Tim’s words.

I would like to share a few photos of my (previously owned) ’67 Beetle now in Tokyo, Japan.  It’s been changed quite a bit—both to comply with Japanese law, but also to suit the new owner’s tastes. It’s being driven regularly and has also been to several VW shows and meets ups — the VW scene is tremulously popular in Japan! The Beetle is being lovingly cared for by its owner. 

I love the Japanese ’67 plate!

  4. What a treat that you get to see the vehicle in its new home. As you may know, my (well my father’s) original ’67 with the same blue color, also made the trip from the US to Japan (Okinawa) and back again.
