Another fantastic example of an L620 Savannah Beige ’67 Beetle, freshly listed here at 1967beetle.com. Kevin is a personal friend and I know it’s bitter sweet to see this gem go.
I’ve owned this car since 2012. It has rarely been driven and stays garaged all the time. I bought it from someone who rarely drove it who purchased it from someone who stored it un driven for over 10 years. This car runs and drives perfectly, it has not been restored and there is no rust underneath. It does appear to have been painted at least once. The paint job is pretty good and there is only 1 over spray discoloration on the drivers door by the lower door hinge. There are 2 small areas that have been touched up with primer on the front right fender and on the drivers window channel. These are both hard to see unless you know to look for them.
The original Sapphire V radio is present and does not work. The back up lights do not work either but are present and original. The engine block is stamped HO which makes it correct for the year of production. The fuel pump is after market but I’ve kept it on the engine because it works fine. I do have the correct rebuilt VW fuel pump for the car still in a bag ready to install if needed. Fenders, bumpers, most of the glass and all other major components to the car appear to be original factory parts for this 1967. The spare tire appears to be a late 1960’s spare and looks beautiful in the trunk which is in great condition. The headliner and interior are in very good condition and shows very little wear. I’ve won several awards for this beetle at car shows around the Chattanooga area. It will be hard find a 1967 beetle in this good of condition.

Considering the ‘daily driver’ condition of this example, I think the $10K starting price is a bit high (in my opinion). Suggestion to seller: a bit of liquid black shoe polish (the kind in the bottle with the sponge applicator tip) will perk that trunk liner right up.
I wish I had a garage big enough and also the $$ to afford all these bugs we see! :-)
Small detail- do you know if the rear window seal also had a chrome strip on it (as the front does)? Just curious.
You can actually see the slot in the rear window rubber where the chrome strip should go.
The beading between my fenders is beige…unlike this one. Which is correct. I also have a 67 Savannah Beige.
Beige is correct. All ’67 Beetles came with colored beading back then. If it’s black, that means it’s been replaced.
Eric, what it’s the correct beading color for a Ruby Red 67?
Mine has black beading.
