History of the ’67 VW Beetle

For many VW enthusiasts, the model year 1967 holds a special attraction. It’s been long bantered about as the best year of the Beetle. It was the first year for the 1500cc engine, first year for 12-volt electrics, first year for the standard upright headlights, and the last year for the smaller bumpers and painted dash. There are many one year only parts on the 67 model year, especially the US spec versions and all of these attributes create what is one of the most recognizable and desirable Beetles out there.
