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. I’m thinking iv a thing for the L639 Zenith Blues… This beauty would look great in my living room. We can just tell the wife it’s the new Radio ?
    Great example of auto history, in drivable form… Lol

  2. What a treasure! A piece of history… Well preserved!!!! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Sure. I’ll keep working hard over here.

  3. Eric,
    I notice that the car still displays the same Washington State plates it had when it was located in California and listed in 2012. Now it’s in Georgia. I’m sure there is a good story here. Can you enlighten us?

    1. Odd, right? I wrote the org seller today. She said…
      “Hi Eric, Nice to hear from you. Wow, this is crazy! I sold it to a collector in Geogia, last name of Weiner. He has a huge collection of mini cars and VW’s. Can’t imagine why he would be selling it.”

    Great observation Mike! Looks like a “flip” for sure! Nice car though, but the flip kind of is suspicious!

  5. Nice car, but my only question is I’m trying to figure out what that little grey box is underneath the left front light and slightly above the bumper?

    1. Hello, Jaime…I’m with you. I noticed the “box?” but forgot about it until you mentioned it here. It must be the box for accessing the “thermo-coupling electrical focal-positioning calibrator”. What do you think. LOL jay

      1. Lol, hi Jay!! Man it’s always good to hear what you have to say! I personally thought it was the plug to connect your car to keep it from freezing in really cold weather cities? But then again, why would you have an AC right? Lol, I don’t know!

        1. Hey Jamie. I’ve done a lot of research on this, and Volkswagens were never designed for air-conditioning. Even a VW mechanic of old would tell you that they put a lot of strain on air cooled engines.

  6. Focal-positioning calibrator ? Lol, Jay our imaginations could get the both of us in some trouble.. It has for me…lol
    I’m gona play too though. How about a connection box for hardwire integrated towing lights system ? Maybe it spent some time behind an R.V

  7. Oops…got something started here about that “box”! Ha! To your comment about the air condition, Eric..a former VW trained specialist friend of mine who used to install those air conditioning units says that it was the worst thing to happen to VWs! He told me that he and a fellow mechanic would take Saturdays to install the units and made a lot of money doing it. So, it was another of those money-making efforts which people at least thought that they liked. jay

    1. That’s hilarious! It’s still a “cool” car.

  8. Hello. I am the new owner of the car and it is wonderful example of a 67. The car is now located in Arizona

    1. Congratulations, Scott! This car has gotten around, hasn’t it! That’s apparently the Peoples’ Choice for the favorite color, too! Stay tuned to, Scott. jay
