Currently listed on eBay with a reasonable reserve.

“This is a very clean, all original 1967 VW Beetle. As you can see from the photos it is in very good condition and it runs as good as it looks. It has a perfectly running 1500 cc engine which was introduced to this year, putting out 53 hp. This car has 87k original miles and has been well cared for its entire life. It still retains the original jack, lug tool and spare tire. This car came with 2 speed wipers, rear sway bar and radio delete. All of the lights, turn signals, speedometer, wipers, horn etc are in good working order. It has had 1 repaint at some point and looks great.”

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. Has the motor ever been rebuilt?

    1. We don’t know. You’d have to email the seller.

  2. That is amazingly well preserved and STOCK! I can’t even begin to fathom the money I spent trying to get mine into that condition. That car is really a GEM. I hope the new owner is wise enough to keep it stock. Here’s hoping for a good home,

    1. I’m with Russ!
      It took us over $22,000 to get our ’67 close to this one…

  3. Beautiful!!! It looks very well loved. If anyone is looking for a 1967 convertible I am considering selling mine.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    1. Bill Conlon What? Where? When? Anything about your ’67 vert?

      1. Hi Rick. The car is just outside of Salem, Oregon. It Has undergone much restoration although there was not great effort to keep original. I drove it this summer as my daily driver on my 75 mile a day commute. It has a 1600 dual port with dual carbs and runs well. Paint in the last few years, Porch wheels and a new interior. Not sure on my price.

  4. Looks fantastic!
