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. That is certainly a beautiful example of the iconic 67 Bug. And a rolling display of all the period accessories at the same time! Sure wish she could be in my car shed but I’ve brought my allotment of 67 beetles back east from L.A. already. This will sell fast.

  2. Nice 67, are there any pictures of the inside?

    1. Richard,
      Only what I was provided. Let’s see what else the seller has.

  3. The listing says 3/4” white walls. Those stripes look like they are wider than 3/4”.

    1. Did a 1967 Beetle come with white wall tires? I have a 1972 Super and though wide whites may look great on the car I cannot justify the cost when it is likely the tires will go bad long before they wear out. I also prefer the original size tires rather than larger tires. Larger tires will not fit in the spare tire location.

      1. From the factory, no. I’ve seen the .5 whitewalls as a dealership option, add on.

  4. Does anyone still make a 0.5-inch white wall tire in the 165/80R15 size any more?

    1. Coker tire, yes.

      1. I saw 3/4” white walls on Coker’s site in 165/80R15.

  5. Yes it is a beautiful car. The only thing i am wondering is the seats look much like the seats I had in my 65 911 porsche. ???.

    1. I thought this, as well. They don’t look like stock seats, but I could be wrong.

  6. I would love to own a “67”, but some of the asking prices, in my opinion only, are outrageous.

  7. Oh gosh, so tempting!!!! One small thing we noticed. Rear bumper , right side. Incorrect over rider? Maybe it’s the picture? I hope that’s the case. Red is my favorite color!!!

    1. It’s a nice car! No, I think it’s correct.

      Agree Rachel, the right towel bar definitely does not have the correct curve/slope to it.
