Is this 67 for sale? Loading... Reply Eric Shoemaker August 14, 2019 at 9:24 am A dealership option, yes. My ’67 as them as well. Isn’t everything for sale? Loading... Reply RUSS KELLER August 14, 2019 at 9:22 am Is that a roof rack box in the back seat? Very nice. It’s great to see stock, there has been too many customized by 30 year old kids still living at home in their parents basements. The German engineers had a clue about what they were doing, they were not sitting at home blogging complaints and their offendedness about everything. Like what I’m doing right now…But I digress…. Beautiful job, and thank you for posting. Loading... Reply Eric Shoemaker August 14, 2019 at 9:24 am Welcome! Always good to hear from you, Russ. You’ve followed us for many years now. Loading... Reply Don August 14, 2019 at 9:51 am I don’t see how you could find a 67 sedan in much better condition than this one and in just the right color, too! Loading... Reply Mike Buettell August 14, 2019 at 10:27 am A beautiful example of a stock ’67. I love the original spare tire. Just don’t ever try and use it. Loading... Reply Eric Shoemaker August 14, 2019 at 10:32 am Mike, Does this make you want to get back in the ’67 game? Hope you are good. Loading... Reply JULIA MARIA WOLLEY August 14, 2019 at 12:24 pm Wow! It’s as though the car has been sealed away in a time capsule. I love it & I want it! Loading... Reply Jody Sauvageau August 14, 2019 at 12:57 pm Is the hood trim wide like pre 67’s, or does the camera make it look that way? Loading... Reply Thad Woodruff August 14, 2019 at 1:02 pm The hood trim is original and it is narrow. Loading... Reply Jay Grabowski August 14, 2019 at 3:23 pm Thad, How long have you owned this beauty? I’ve been looking myself for quite a while, no luck. Jay Loading... Reply Thad Woodruff September 5, 2019 at 5:31 pm After looking some more, I’ve decided that my beetle does have the wider 1966 hood trim. Upon close examination, I also think the wider hood trim piece is original to my beetle. The trim piece on my car has the 1966 fasteners and there is not a single sign on the underside of the hood, which has its original paint, that anything related to the hood or the hood trim piece has ever been touched. I chalk it up to another 1967 beetle anamoly. Loading... Reply jay salser September 5, 2019 at 7:22 pm Hi, Thad…I’ve learned from dealing with the 1967 Model of Beetle–never to say “never” and never to say “always”. LOL There seems to be no end of “anomalies” jay Loading... Reply jeffrey gamble August 15, 2019 at 9:14 am hard to find no excuse OG 67. A beauty Loading... Reply John Henshaw August 16, 2019 at 12:04 pm So rare and exciting to find one with an original, unmolested interior! Especially that rear luggage compartment area, and foot well carpeting. Were the door panels ever replaced? Look a little “puffy” between heat seams, but also might be the video resolution? Interesting note: I also had the exact same Fulda Diadem bias ply black wall tires (as the spare here) from the factory installed on my 1972 Super Beetle when I purchased it showroom new in August of that year! Loading... Reply Thad woodruff August 16, 2019 at 1:08 pm H John— I think it must be my amateurish video. In person, the door panels are smooth and in near perfect condition. Even the elastic in the driver door pocket is still like new. Loading... Reply Ajit August 20, 2019 at 8:59 pm Absolutely love the L282 Lotus White. My favorite of all colors, though I like the red interior. Loading... Reply Leave a Comment Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
