SOLD — L456 Ruby Red ’67 Beetle Sunroof


Fresh to the market here at, this is a very nice ’67 Beetle sunroof. Marie and I exchanged many emails prior to her listing. Here’s the history of this gem.

I purchased this car in 1977 from the original owner and drove it regularly from 1977 to about 1990. During that period I had the engine either rebuilt or replaced, I cannot remember which. The miles that you see are on the replaced/rebuilt engine. The car has been garaged or stored under cover from about 1988 till today.

From 1990 to about 2002 the car was driven just a few miles a year. In 2002 we replaced the floor pan, made some minor repairs and had it painted. From 2002 to 2005 it was driven locally and regularly. From 2005 to today it has been stored and driven a few miles a year.

In April 2017 we replaced the battery, the fuel line, fuel filter, and condenser. The car runs great! The brakes and sunroof need repairs.
The car has been painted several times and is in good shape with just a few chips. The floor pan has been replaced and is solid. The window gaskets have been replaced, though they need to be replaced again. There are a number of things need to be done to the interior if someone wanted to restore the car, including new seat covers, new door panels, and new headliner.

I have loved this car having owned it for 40 years. I would love to find a buyer that would love it now and restore it!

  1. Would love to see more pics of this Sunroof!

    1. Chris, We are on a trip till the 8th of November. I will be happy to take more photos. What are you interested in seeing? Inside of the car? Thank you,

  2. My guess is that the gasoline in the tank is old–clear the fuel system and add fresh gasoline and the car might run. jay

    1. Thank you Jay! We will give this a try! Marie

  3. Chris, this car has your name all over it.

  4. It’s still a good looking car!
