Good luck with the sale Tim! I’m sure this one will make someone very happy. In fact, I’d love to buy it if I did not already have a ’67. Zenith blue is my fav Beetle color. What do you think?

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. It’s a beautiful car!! I agree with Eric- I’d love to buy it if I didn’t already own a 67. Sombody will love to get it.

    1. It’s amazing!, thank you.

      1. It’s a very nice ’67!

  2. Worth every penny.

    1. I agree.

  3. This is probably THE NICEST original Zenith blue ’67 I have ever seen! Wish I had more money, It would be mine!

    1. I’d fight you for it, if I had a bigger garage. :)

  4. Tim,
    Have you had any luck?

  5. I have a ’67 Zenith Blue one looks exactly the same except for the sunroof. I dont know how much more the sunroof cost when new but these 45 years later it would have been a good investment to have one. I love the white walls, where were they purchased? I also have the three point static seat belts, and the AM radio which still works great.

  6. Hey Todd,

    How long have you had your 67? I’d love to see some photos!


  7. I forgot to answer your question about the whitewalls. They are “American Classics” (radials)

  8. I have a 1967 Volkswagen Bug purchase from Imported Motors Albuquerque, NM
    Have all paper work, manuals,ect
    July 22,1967.
    True mileage 23,587
    Still Show-room new
    Been in Storage. Believe it or Not

    1. Just emailed you!

  9. What a beauty, and complete with owners manual. Doesn’t get much better?

  10. Good Luck selling the Zenith Blue. Very nice car and after restoring several I know you probably have just about that much in the restoration. I hope you get close to asking.
