Jay and I are in contact (sometimes) daily about the ’67 Beetle market. We joke a lot too. Reason? So many vintage VW’s are chopped up, lowered, and missing many if not all of their correct parts. Well, not this time. This L620 Savanna Beige ’67 Beetle is as close perfect as it gets. Sure, a few usual suspects in the engine have been changed (Pierburg fuel pump, etc). But, it would not take much at all to make this gem perfect. Look at those correct color running boards, and fender beading. Who’s going to make an offer?
Info from the seller.
You are viewing what may be the best unrestored original vintage VW Bug in existence. We all know these great cars, were known for their reliability, gas mileage, and traction in snow, when most other cars didn’t make it home. No one I know or knew, kept these cars at home in the garage, and only used them occasionally on sunny days. I have over 150 photos of very remote areas, that I wish I could post, but eBay only allows 24, unless you attach your own site, which I don’t have. So, I’m posting a few of the outside, so you can see the original factory paint, and the dent and dimple free body. I’m also posting the remainder, of a small taste of remote areas, so you can appreciate the incredible original quality. Take a look at the original sound deadening material, on top of the floors, under the rubber floor mats. The upholstery looks new, all of it. I am probably the first guy, to open the original tool kit. I’ve also included a photo of the factory equipped seat belts, that are in excellent condition, that the original owner, replaced with modern units. This car will have you talking to yourself, and have you thinking, you just stepped out of a time machine. If this was a Porsche 356, the factory would be putting it in their museum.

WOW! What a beauty!
Truly exceptional condition!! Wow! Curious about rear bumpers, though. I note on this example that the tips of the rear bumper blade are very close to the fenders (the passenger side a little more so than the driver side) ….much closer than I have ever seen on a ‘stock’ Beetle. In other photos I’ve seen (even official VW brochures) the blade ends look to be at least 2″ or more away from the fender. Did this change over the years? I’d think that, with the bumper being that close to the body, the rear decklid would catch on the bumper. Comments??
A nice ’67, that’s for sure.
A bidder bumped the reserve not met bid of $9800 to a reserve met bid of $17,500 in just one bid. I’ve had this happen to me before, a bidder bids an outrageous amount just to reveal the sellers reserve. I hope this doesn’t jeopardize the auction.
OH I love that original square weave carpet….heaven!!
