Nice car! Hard to be sure, but looks like it might have been resprayed. The exterior seems to be a bit more “blue” than the interior and the front lip under the hood. However the seller implies it is in original paint.
I’d think it has to have been sprayed at least once. Looking at the fender beading could help show a difference in color.
I contacted the seller, and he said it “looks like at one time it was repainted.”
Good to know. I have a pile of German ’67 fenders in my garage. I’m just saying.
Selling any of them :) ?
If you decide, I need a passenger front fender :)
Are you in the SF Bay Area? They are too heavy to ship.
Nope, east coast. I’d gladly pay the shipping. We can take this offline if you’d like. Thanks!
The right front fender is not original so it’s a little misleading to say 100% stock etc etc.
Look at the horn grills, should be “two fingers” to the inter seam like the left front, the right is “four fingers”
Good notice on the fender. I didn’t see that when I was getting the listing out. ’67 fenders are a bit hard to come by. However, they are out there. This could mean the car was hit at one point. However, it’s still a nice find at this price point.
I had to purchase several old fenders so as to ensure correct build and straightest product “under all the paint” So I also have more than a few lying around to which I will sell off when mine is on the road. The paint on this car does not look right to me, BUT it is a great looker for sure and we can all be green with envy
You’re sharp! I was looking at this listing on ebay and then then found this site on google. This vehicle is right down the street from me.
I’m in the market for a bug right now and am trying to find something nice and original.
1967beetle.com! I’m very proud to hear so many people are noticing our efforts.
Yeah, this is a cool site you’ve made here. I’m currently on the fence considering which year bug to get. I like the dash of the late 60s, but I like the super beetle suspension. I’ve tinkered with and built a few cars/trucks/bikes. I’m at a point now where I’d like something old and normal (unmolested).
Thanks! Yeah, I’m in love with the ’67, as it combines the best of old and new.
This is David the owner of the car for sale… thanks for all the info and interest so far. I have updated the eBay listing with more info clarifying the current condition of the car . The pictures posted are before the car was detailed and the engine bay/ under front hood was untouched in the pictures above it needed a good cleaning and coat of wax. I will post new photos soon.
Send over any photos and I can add to your listing.
if the auction description has been updated, I can’t find the additions. If it has been repainted and has a replaced fender, then it is not “100% stock and unmolested” and a buyer who discovers that will almost certainly be disappointed. Just sayin’ …
This is a very good time capsule in my mind, yes a wing has been replaced, yes a respray was probably done on the exterior.
But, this looks right! I always say, beware of cars that look too right:) A genuine survivor will have these “poker tells” of genuine use, the dna of the car I would say is pretty much untouched.
Not in this case of course an totally off topic…however a genuine british built AC Cobra can be identified by the fact that one of the front wings has a different profile to the other, this is due to the wooden buck that the wings were made on being hand made and a litte bit “out” I know this as I know a good friend who built them in the 60s.
Yes off topic but to marry those two together I would say, to find a real gem you have to look at the whole picture, imperfections are what excites a wise eyed collector into finding the real deal.
