Albert Cuevas’s L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle was featured with us a bit ago. Things got busy, and I forgot to mention that we did help it find a new home. His ’67 is a true gem that I’m sure the new owner will enjoy for many years to come. (This car is sold)
This is a beautifully restored, turn-key 1967 beetle, which I have owned for 21 years. I’m starting other projects. This car was restored around 3 years ago and always has been garaged since. Definitely a head- turner. The car needs nothing. My asking price was much lower than what it has taken to build. I’ve enjoyed her for 21 years–now it’s time for someone else to enjoy. To some, the 1967 is considered to be one of the best years. It was the first year for 12 volt, 1500cc engine and the last year of classic bumpers and so on.
Engine: 1600cc Single Port. Recently added are rebuilt heads with stock pistons, new Bosch alternator, Bosch starter, Bosch coil, new fuel pump and all fuel lines, clutch & flywheel, German bowden tube & clutch cable, oil pump, 96 pass oil cooler with all steel braided hoses & external oil filter. All engine tin has been powder-coated. New front & rear transmission mounts and a new German muffler have been installed.
Interior: All new, beautiful charcoal tweed & off-white vinyl seat covers & door panels, charcoal German square weave carpet in the car and in the trunk and luggage area as well. All seat frames, shifter, E-brake, steering column & turn signal lever previously were painted off-white. New off-white perforated headliner, restored speedometer, new sun visors, older restored off-white steering wheel with new leather cover and the correct Sapphire V Radio (not connected). One key opens doors, operates ignition and opens the decklid. A separate key is for the shift lock & hood lock.

Exterior: The Beetle was re-painted in its original Zenith Blue. The car has a few minor dings but absolutely nothing major. There is newer stainless steel molding, new running boards and window rubbers. The car has its original, beautiful, one-year-only, 1967 re-chromed rear bumper stamped with the VW Logo sporting its original working reverse lights. All bumper brackets have been powder-coated light gray. Both sides of the pans have been replaced and re-sprayed with under coating on bottom and top with POR15. An absolutely RUST FREE California car. The tires are Firestone 560-15 with the 1” white wall.
