Just what we like to see here at 1967beetle.com; L633 VW Blue in all of its glory. This one will surely go fast. I’ve seen this car personally, and know the amount of detail that has gone into the restoration.
“The new engine was installed at 53,288, so it is not even broken in. It drives like new, no slop in the steering, adjusted just right. Drives straight and strong. No rust at all. There is a small dent on the top from a tree branch, bummer. I had a dent guy estimate $250 to repair it, but I would have had to pull the headliner. Otherwise, straight and clean. I did not replace the headliner or seat covers, they look to be original and in decent shape. The headliner is worn where the back seat rubs it on the side rails, but overall in great shape. The front seats look great, but the top of the back has small cracks from the sun. The transmission was built to ’67 specs. I can show it on Sunday’s and some evenings.”

Eric, were the black seat covers and door covers an option on VW Blue Bugs?
No disrespect Eric, but i have to disagree with your statement. There were 2 interior options for 67 VW Blue Beetles. The standard equipment, or more common option were vinyl seats and door panels which were Dark Platinum Gray, code 141. The optional cloth option would be a Platinum Pattern code 146 for the sitting area only with vinyl back and sides having Platinum code 141.
The only colors to have Black as an option in 67 would be, Lotus White, Ruby Red, Savanna Beige, Zenith Blue and the non US market color Fontanna Gray. Hope this helps.
Interesting, as I’ve seen many with this color combination. I’ll have to research this further and report back.
Jody is correct. Is this vehicle fair game for other non original factory comments?
Well I think it is beautifully looked after, and so close to correct.
Around here ( Canada. ) I don’t ever see them this nice for $10,000
Iv that in mine, and still looking for lill pieces to put it right
Then I read more on this site and notice more I need to do….lol
Keeps me busy….
I think that all comments should be of the nature that would help prospective buyers to make good choices. I find that I have to balance my comments because not everyone wants a car which is perfect in every respect. If that were true, I’d have to take a deep breath myself. LOL. However, sometimes prospective buyers contact me wanting a complete critique of a vehicle. At that point, I feel free to dissect the automobile–especially if the seller is making false or baseless claims (sometimes out of lack of knowledge, BTW). jay
Jay said it.
Also. The goal here is never to bad talk another owners car. We’re all here as a community to lift up each other with knowledge. I’m fine with things being pointed out from an educational standpoint. However, anything other than that could be digested incorrectly. Our sellers pay for these listings, so…
It’s not 100% correct but it’s priced well for what it is. It would be nice to see a pic of the dent on the roof though.
The car is a beauty! It speaks for itself!. I’d be proud of it. Good luck, Jim
I just bought my first beetle which is a 67. And have enjoyed seeing what people have done. I think you have done an awesome job!
Congratulations, Veronica, on becoming a member of the Great ’67 Community! May you derive as much enjoyment from your car as have the rest of us! Get with Eric to talk about doing a Featured Article on you and your car. jay
