SOLD — L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle

Listed for our friends over at BaT, this L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle is an example of period correct along with a few modern upgrades. Also, SB12 Headlights! Who’s going to make an offer?

This 1967 Volkswagen Beetle is a restored example powered by a 1600cc dual-port flat-four paired to a 4-speed manual. Purchased in 2015, the seller has carefully finished the restoration by addressing originality details, and has driven it 3k miles since completion. The body was restored and painted in original Zenith Blue previously and shows well with good chrome. The restored interior is in very nice condition with fresh German materials and a working original Sapphire V radio. A complete tune up was just done which also included an oil change, valve adjustment, a Pertronix ignition, and new alternator. It comes with books, receipts from the seller’s ownership, transferable California black plates, and a clean Oregon title.

Hello, I'm Eric. I started Air-Cooled Artifacts (previously, and Lane Russell). I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Beautiful car, presented in very nice photos. Comments on BAT look good so far. In the past I’ve found that only a few of BAT readers understand just how special the ’67 Beetle is and will bid accordingly. If you don’t get your reserve, I suggest you try “Old Bug.” It costs more to advertise there but if you’re willing to wait, I sincerely believe the collector who appreciates quality will pay your price.

    I think Old Bug charges $500 which is only paid if the car sells at your price.

    You are correct about Old Bug. Randy screens the cars and only well restored or original cars are presented. We bought our 67 through Randy and he was very helpful. The car’s owner was first class also. Nothing but good honest people who love V W’s
