SOLD – L41 Black ’67 Beetle

Just listed for sale here at 1967beetle.comL41 Black in the correct color combination. There’s not much more I can say about this ’67 Beetle, other than the fact that I’d love to park it in my garage. Here’s the info we have from the seller with a nice video to finish it all off. Who’s going to make an offer?

We are pleased to present this thoughtfully restored 1967 Volkswagen Beetle for your consideration. For most VW enthusiasts, the model year 1967 holds a special attraction. It’s been recognized and argued as the best year of the Beetle. It was the first year for the near 1500cc engine, first year for 12-volt electrics, first year for the standard upright headlights, and what would end up being the last year for the smaller bumpers and painted dash. There are many one year only parts on the ’67 model year, especially the US spec versions and all of these attributes have made it the most recognizable and desirable Beetles out there.

Status: SOLD
Mileage: 32,141
Location: Grand Rapids, MI

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. First to comment. I’m sure all of the ’67 Beetle purist out there would like this one… (Smile)

    1. My son and I’ve recently bought a 1967 Beetle with sunroof. There are several items on the car that are not correct. Is there any way I could speak to you via phone to obtain your opinion and guidance on how and what to do to bring this beetle closer to original configuration? I would like to message my ph# to you if your willing o advise me. We love the car. It drives fantastically. I’ve a friend that’s owned a ’66 for over 40 years and he say’s this ’67 drives like it just rolled off the show room floor.
      Respectfully, Tim

  2. Very nice. Price is very strong…the right bumpers would help. I’m confused about the Sapphire III, can you convert them to 12 Volt?

    1. Agree. The radio is 12V.

  3. I agree with Rick about the very strong price for a car with very no background information. Is 32K the correct mileage with documentation? What size motor? Apparently a 1600 with alternator. Should have Sapphire V radio.

  4. Correct rear override bars and correct engine would be nice. But that can be fixed. Otherwise very nice.

  5. Pretty car. I’ve always loved black 67’s. If the seller is reading this, he’d benefit from replacing those Brazilian aftermarket front and rear bumpers. I also think that black paint job would really pop if the rims where painted the correct black and white like 67’s were delivered with and it had the 1″ whitewalls. As it was mentioned, the engine is missing a lot of the originally delivered 67 parts as well. All these things can certainly be corrected but it should be priced accordingly.

  6. Where are the back up lights?

  7. Doesn’t appear original. No factory seat belts or center ring. Doesn’t appear to have the correct gas gap, I am thinking replacement gas tank? No original 12 volt red and silver sticker on the front drivers door jam? Not sure of the engine, looks like a 1600, certainly not the correct oil bath with heat risers, I am guessing no thermostat? Must be early fronts seats, no lift handles. Not the correct overrides on bumper, no back up lights? Not the correct radio for that year. Very nice looking ride, but hard to believe with only 32,000 miles so much is missing.

    1. I’m sure 32,000 is more like 132,000, given how the speedo starts over at 100,000. It’s a nice car, but clearly has had work done.

    2. I agree with all of these arguments here. Mostly all of these issues can be fixed though. The one thing that I always look for in these cars first and foremost is paint and body quality, undercarriage, spare tire tub, VINs, blems, etc. These are the most expensive areas to fix on a restoration, and often overlooked. So lets see if these pics can come forward and really see what this car is all about.

  8. I recently attended an event at the local Traverse City gallery. What I can tell you is their cars here are absolutely gourgous but not necessarily period correct as we see with this 67′. Some of the one year parts are missing, etc. Based on the other offerings at these galleries, this is a “starter car”.
    $16,900 is a strong price, but when you compare it to the 77′ Westfalia Bus asking 30k, or several other cars at the 39-50k range, it’s a bargain. I trust the inventory has more influence on the sticker price than the exact one year parts being in place in this price range.

    1. I believe it is an under 10k car

  9. Incorrect rim colors, Incorrect bumpers, missing reverse lights. The seatbacks are wrinkled, and tire white walls are not correct, as hubcaps look scuffed.
    This is either meant for a lay person, and shouldn’t be valued more than $7K to be fair.

  10. Chris is correct on price, because there’s a lot of period correct items missing. Must see to counter offer.
