SOLD — ’67 VW Type 1 Deluxe Sedan

Vehicle Information:
This ’67 is very respectable and will sell fast.

“Purchased from original owner in 2011. Original Survivor. As you can see from the pictures, this is a very solid car with little to no rust. The original pans are in fine condition with no issues. The car has been brought back to original running condition using German OEM, Wolfsburg West or West Coat Metric parts.  The seat belts have been replaced with modern 3 point retractables, however the originals will be included with the car. The body was originally Lotus White with one repaint to the light meringue yellow white it has now. The engine has one rebuild and is 99% stock with the exception of a pertronix ignition newly installed in a correct NOS Bosch distributor. (the car had been changed to a centrifugal advance 009 but is now back to the correct and much better running vacuum advance distributor) All heater tin and flaps are correct, and a new NOS thermostat is installed.  The radio is a ’67 Blaupunkt restored by Matthias Klassen in Germany and is Short Wave, Police Band, AM, FM.  The interior is in excellent shape and mostly original with the exception of new Wolfsburg West door panels and window cranks.  The glovebox contains the original owners manual.”

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. Nice looking 67. Love the radio!

  2. I’d agree! I’m sure this one will go fast.

  3. Very nice.

    beauty radio

    lovely Beetle :D

  4. Wow! Love your car.

    1. Thank you,
      much appreciated.
      Wanting it to go to a good home…

      1. I heard a rumor that this sold. :)

  5. I’ll update to “PENDING” :)

  6. Looks very nice… I have a ’67 also but mine came with ’66 front fenders… so now i bought a ’66 rear deck lid as well and albert type mirrors… im keeping the ’67 deck lid in case when i sell the buyer wants it… great job on your beetle.

    1. I don’t believe that a ’66 decklid will fit on a ’67 body without some serious modifications..
