Just listed here at 1967beetle.com, this L19 Yukon Yellow ’67 Vert is a rare bird for sure. Info from the seller, who appears to be the original owner.
If you’re a Beetle fan, you know that 67 is a very collectible year – especially convertibles which don’t come up all that often. I bought this car new in December of 1966. It was restored about 5-years ago, and now looks and drives like the day I bought it. This was the last year of the good-looking bumpers, the only year with chrome back-up lights and the last year for the chrome trim on the top. The car is completely stock with the exception of the engine which has 1600cc barrels instead of the 1500cc originals and Pertronic ignition (a Godsend); I figure it yields about 4 more horsepower. Everything works, but the radio reception is bad, but will be fixed for new owner. Many spare parts as well.
What do you guys think? Being the purist I am, I’m still finding it hard to find anything wrong with this gem.
