SOLD – L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle


A quick mention of this L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle sent over by a reader. It seems the values on the type 1 sedan keep climbing up. This car appears to be mostly correct. What do you think? Info below if you’d like to contact the seller.

We are very pleased to have this 1967 Volkswagen Bug for sale. This is an original San Luis Obispo car that is like nothing we have ever seen. We first bought and sold this car about 10 years ago to a close family friend and only have it available now because of his passing.

This Bug is wearing 90% of its original paint and looks like new condition. Honestly you would swear it was just restored but it is not. The upholstery is also all original and looks and feels like new condition. The underside of this car is just as nice as it is on top. The floor pans have no rust, dents or dings at all. Under the hood it is all original and in excellent condition.

As you will see in the photos it has its original spare tire, original jack and even its original tool roll. The engine bay is super clean and has its original matching numbers engine. Most people will tell you that 1967 was the best year for a Volkswagen bug. It came from factory with the desirable early style body but was the only year you could get this early style body with a 1500cc engine and 12-volt electrical system. It runs and drives like no Volkswagen I have ever driven. It honestly drives amazingly smooth, quiet and like new. This truly is a very special Volkswagen that can not be duplicated. The car shows just as good in person if not better than it does in the photos. I am more than happy to help any interested buyers. The car is located in our showroom for viewing. Please take a good look at the photos and remember this is all original and unrestored. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have.

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. Looks like a nice 67. I would like to see a picture of the back of the speedometer if possible.

    1. Richard,
      You’d need to check the main listing.

  2. The main listing does not show the back of the speedo. However there are some interesting pictures on the main listing.

  3. I can only see two photos. Are there others, and how do I access them?

    1. Take a look at the main link, in the first paragraph.

  4. That is not a factory fresh engine. The fuel pump for staters, missing stickers on the air cleaner and fan housing, wrong distributor cap. Those are the easy things to see. I wonder what others are hidden?

    1. Starters, not staters.

  5. One of the nicest ’67s I’ve seen. I am beginning my 1967 type 1 restoration (parts accumulation) and looking forward to getting mine in this condition. It is my first car, bought in Arizona in 1984 for $1200. OK – to get crazy original, I would pick up the oil bath air cleaner sticker. These are available at Wolfburg West for a few dollars. Also, check for the right-side horn grill to see if it has the black-out backing (often missing). The seats: On a 1967 owner’s manual, it shows no seam on the top of the seat back. This one has the seam, however it might be due to variations mid-year, including the recliner TAB vs. lever at the bottom like mine has. It’s tough sometimes to get more precise information on vintage VWs since most of the original publications are in black-and-white (e.g. blue Bosch coil? Brown-red Bosch distributor cap?) Otherwise, near perfect. It would be great if the owner got $39,995, or close to it!

  6. I would love to own a European 67 VW, but the high prices left me out of the game a few years back.

  7. This bug and it’s pictures are no long available via the link to the seller’s website. I wonder if this bug sold and for how much?

  8. Is it just me or does that car really look like Lotus White L282 not Savanna Beige? Also wheel color (outer rim), fender beading, running board all match the paint also meaning its has to be Lotus White .
