’67 Volkswagen Beetle — Traveling in Europe

’67 Volkswagen Beetle — Traveling in Europe

This is a nice little story by Friede Strobl from the February ’67 issue of Foreign Car Guide magazine. In the article Friede describes what it’s like to travel to Germany to pick up your brand new VW as so many Americans did through the tourist delivery program. There are some good photos of an “early” ’67 and it’s cool to hear her boast of the new 1500cc motor.

As a side note, the cover shows the VW Blue ’67 Friede purchased in full color. You can clearly see the blue beading and the black running boards. It’s been long argued that the running boards should match the beading and vice versa on 60’s Beetles, but here with VW Blue this is clearly not the case.

Hello, I'm Jody Sauvageau...

I’ve been fascinated with Volkswagen’s since I received my first Beetle matchbox car in 1976 at the age of four. In fact I still have it today. My first car was a VW and I have always owned at least one in the twenty five years that I’ve been driving. My total to date is thirteen and three of those have been 1967 Beetles. I own two 1967 Beetles at the present time as well as two other vintage VW’s. My pride and joy is my '67 which I restored from the ground up. I have been researching and collecting information specifically to the '67 model year for the past eighteen years. I love to collect VW literature and I own every issue of Hot VW' s Magazine.

  1. Did you see where the yellow Bosh sticker is placed on the coil in engine photo? It is not near the terminals, but at the back end! Very interesting. Which way does it suppose to go?

  2. That is what I wanted to know; vintage photos sure confirm the proper placement at the bottom of the coil, not at the top near the terminals. That is where mine will go today, on the bottom!
