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.
