SOLD – L456 Ruby Red ’67 Beetle

FOR SALE – L456 Ruby Red '67 BeetleJust listed for sale here at This is a very very nice L456 Ruby Red ’67 Beetle, just waiting for someone to take it home. Original interior, engine is very clean, Germany front bumpers and fenders. Sure, the fuel pump could be replaced with one of our correct German Pierburg pumps, or perhaps a VW 105-1 carb. However, I don’t think this car needs much at all to be perfect and 100% correct to factory specs.

“Selling my 1967 VW beetle, too many cars and hate to see it go but I hardly ever drive it and this car needs to be enjoyed by the next owner.

You know the 1967 is a masterpiece, and most desirable year. This car has had 3 owners and I have EVERY receipt from new and in a book for you to look at.

This Beetle was painted one time in 1998 and I have a picture of the receipt listed. It was completely taken apart, and the jambs were left original. The only reason for the new paint was to freshen up the faded original. NEVER any rust or damage, and ALWAYS garaged since new.

Interior is ALL original, and close to mint condition.

Engine was rebuilt in 2006, and looks and runs like new, check the pictures.

This is probably one of the nicest original Beetles you will ever find, I promise you won’t be disappointed!”

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. $1,400 for a “complete paint job”!
    Boy, those days are gone

    1. Mike. I had a good laugh from that one as well. (Smile)

  2. Eric, looks like it could use one of your oil bath cleaners.

    1. Ok, so that too. We’re actually not going to be doing them anymore unless a customer really wants one. We have one left in stock. Power coated and ready to go. After that……..

  3. I’ll may take one.
    what’s your last one in stock sale price?

  4. That is a nice one. I would have NEVER painted that car.

  5. This is beautiful. If you are a “purist” its probably as close as you will get to perfect for under 10K…
    In addition, the owner’s garage is immaculate which I trust transfers to the car.

  6. Eric: You state that this car (and others) is “Just listed for sale here at”. I have always been under the impression that you have communicated with the owner for listing the cars on your site. Last night I talked to the owner of this ruby red 1967 Beetle. He has never heard of “”. His only listing was through EBay. This is confusing to me. Please explain. Thanks,

    1. Jim. Sure. As I mentioned in email, 95% of the ’67 Beetles listed here are paid classifieds. (They help offset the cost of running Sometimes, I choose to curate cars when I find a gem worth mentioning. The web is public domain, and who does not want free advertising. Also, what ’67 Beetle owner has not heard of (Smile) I hope that helps answer your question. Feel free to reach out anytime.

  7. Sold last night for $10,000 and will be going to California. This was a great buy for someone on this car!
