Upon seeing photos of this L639 Zenith Blue ’67 SunRoof Beetle, my first words were…”How can this car sell for so little?”
Only a couple of months ago, a L639 Zenith ’67 Blue Sedan sold at Mecum’s auction in Dallas, Texas for $25,000. Although it truly was a nice car, it didn’t hold a candle to this one which is selling for less!
How often do we find a ’67 Beetle that wasn’t wrecked and rusted before the restoration? Well…here’s one. Take a sound car and do a quality classic restoration and the result is a treasure.
I have been privileged to view numerous photos of this car. The color-coded fender beading and running boards really set this car apart from its contemporaries. Besides being a rare SunRoof, complete with everything that was supposed to come on this car from the factory, there are some accessories which add icing to the cake. These include Pop-out Windows, a spectacular Dual-purpose Interior Rear View Mirror, a VW Tissue Container, authentic VW Logo-ed Sill Plates, a Sapphire VI AM-FM Radio with the Rubber Knobs, Narrow Stripe White-walled Tires, Locking Steering Column Ignition, Dust Cover on the Deck lid Latch, an Original European Dealer Badge, Complete Maintenance Records since the car left the showroom floor in Europe, the Original German Sales Papers and even a Tube of Touch-up Paint. Amazing. I’m also proud to mention that one of my restored German oil bath air cleaners resides inside the comforts of the engine bay.

I don’t think it gets much better than this…
Wow this car is beautiful! An exact replica of my very first car during my senior year in high school 1979 ! You are right Erik, it doesn’t get much better than this! ; )
I totally agree. Gary’s attention to detail with this ’67 is one of the best I’ve ever seen.
I’ve critiqued a lot of VWs in my time. This is certainly one of the very best! I went over and over the photos to find something amiss. “Wow!” is all that I have to say. I loved looking beneath the fender and seeing that factory look. And all of those extras. The person who gets this car will ride with style right into the Volkswagen Community. jay
I second that! I know the ’67 Beetle very well. This car isn’t missing a thing. I’m a bit jealous and wish I had the space for another one.
My Zenith Blue 67, bought from original owner in 72 is equipped with 3 point seatbelts which use that flimsy hook that mounts up alongside the coat hook.
Great to see the photos of a real nice 67, a target I hope to achieve with mine in time.
Hello, Todd…Sounds like you have a winner there! Keep looking for original parts to turn the car back to original appearance and operation. It’s definitely worth more in dollars and will draw more attention from the crowd. I have a friend who dolled his ’67 Ruby Red with every imaginable gadget possible. No one would look at the car. He got the point! He asked me to help with correct seats, trunk liner, sheet metal, correct bumpers, etc., etc. and, above all, to remove all of that “other stuff”. Immediately, he began drawing attention to his car and taking awards at the shows. Not that that’s the only motivation–it just proves what happens when these cars are returned to original appearance and operation. Stay tuned to 1967Beetle.com!
