Fresh to the market here at 1967beetle.com; we have a very nice L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle Sunroof for sale. The seller has included a lot of good information. I love seeing ’67 Beetles that are mostly correct. As you know, many of the one year only parts are very hard to find. I know from my own restoration that it took well over 10 years to find them all. Did I mention that this ’67 Beetle is a sunroof?!

The ubiquitous Volkswagen Beetle hardly needs an introduction. With over twenty-one million built over a span of 65 years, the Beetle has charmed its way into cultures the world over. From its beginnings as a German peoples car in the late 1930s to the Brazilian and Mexican built taxicabs of the 2000s, VWs most iconic car went through a myriad of changes though the shape remained as familiar as ever. In the 1960s, a series of refinements were made to improve performance, handling, and safety. Most notably perhaps was the increase in size of the windows all around. Engines grew from 1200 to 1500 cc and now put out 54 horsepower, which is plenty to get this little bug up to 60mph with ease. Another big change came in the form of a 12V electrical system which was more reliable and powerful, much better suited to every day driving. The 1967 Beetle is an interesting car, in that considering all of the years the Beetle was in production, many parts on the 67 are one-year-only, making them an interesting novelty among VW enthusiasts.
RB Collection is very pleased to offer this charming and delightful 1967 VW Beetle Sunroof coupe. This is a very well-kept car that does not appear to have been fully restored, rather it has been well maintained, with some light restoration work done as-necessary. The body is very solid, with excellent floors, fenders and running boards. The paint, Zenith Blue, is in good condition, showing a few flaws and imperfections that are consistent with a well-loved original car. The exterior trim is similarly good with a couple of minor flaws in the alloy trim and the bumpers, while straight and complete show a bit of peeling at the joints of the overrider bars. Again, these flaws are nothing alarming and do nothing to detract from the charm of this wonderful car. The interior is excellent with what appear to be original seats and door panels. Receipts show the headliner was replaced some time ago, and oatmeal carpets line the footwells along with rubber mats. The sunroof works nicely and the doors shut beautifully with a solid feel.
Without exaggeration, this is one of the nicest Beetles we have ever driven. The engine starts right on the button, the clutch and transmission feel tight and precise, and the brakes are strong. The 1500 engine has plenty of torque and pulls smoothly all the way through the rev range. It is simply a delight on the road and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Ready for weekend fun, this 1967 VW Beetle is an excellent first time classic or would make a worthy addition to any stable where driving is a priority. The sale includes a few spare parts, two sets of keys, a fitted car cover and a period appropriate aluminum luggage rack.
What do you guys think? I’d be proud to own this ’67 Beetle. Zenith Blue is one of the best colors, in my opinion.
