Good luck with the sale Tim! I’m sure this one will make someone very happy. In fact, I’d love to buy it if I did not already have a ’67. Zenith blue is my fav Beetle color. What do you think?

I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

I have a '67 Zenith Blue one looks exactly the same except for the sunroof. I dont know how much more the sunroof cost when new but these 45 years later it would have been a good investment to have one. I love the white walls, where were they purchased? I also have the three point static seat belts, and the AM radio which still works great.

I forgot to answer your question about the whitewalls. They are "American Classics" (radials) http://www.americanclassictires.com/

Good Luck selling the Zenith Blue. Very nice car and after restoring several I know you probably have just about that much in the restoration. I hope you get close to asking.
