If you’ve been reading 1967beetle.com for a bit, you’ve seen this gem before. Just listed for Crevier Classic Cars, this L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle is very well done. I’m proud to say that one of my own restored German oil bath air cleaners rest comfortably inside the engine bay, along with correct ’67 decals.
“Crevier Classic Cars is pleased to offer our 1967 Volkswagen Beetle. This beautiful example has been restored with attention to detail and freshly completed. Finished in its original color of Zenith Blue, with lovely and correct Black Interior. Color coded running boards as well as fender welt trim add to the charm of this VW.”

Stunning! I love all the cars it is shown with as well. In good company.
Buy it for meeeeeee!
I only live a few miles from Crevier Classics, so I stopped by a week ago and gave this car (as well as their ’67 Vert) a thorough exam. They call the color “Bahama” blue, and did not appreciate me telling them that it was L639 Zenith Blue. They were also irritated when I suggested a German fuel pump and thought the price of $35,000 was too high.(Nice to see they have lowered the price a little.) When I told them I knew this car from an “Old Bug” ad about two months ago where it was offered for $22,500 conversation ceased; however, this is one beautiful car ! I left fingerprints and drool all over the Hella SB 12 headlight rings, Sapphire VI AM/FM, and virtually new retractable seatbelts. Eric’s decals and oil bath air cleaner look really good. Someone with deep pockets is going to get a fabulous car.
Great job pointing out the mistakes. Hard to put one over on us 67 guys. I agree, the SB12’s, radio and new like seat belts would be nice to have.
Yes. I too wondered why a correct ’67 pump was not offered, seeing they are fairly easy to get. Us ’67 folks are a rare breed of purist snobs. Well, sorta. If I had this ’67, I’d be putting the push I genny back in, along with the correct pump.
This ’67 is still about as good as it gets. Lenny Copp did the interior, and that alone was about $5,000.00.
This is a gorgeous car with an interesting history. It sold only a few months ago in Arizona for $8,800. After that, it underwent a considerable restoration of the interior, paint, and tires. It was then put up for sale for $22,000. It was purchased by Creviar Classics. I can see no changes to the car now other than the roof rack. I’m sure you guys see that this car was originally sold in Europe due to the ignition on the steering wheel. A beautiful car that was fairly priced at $22,000 only a couple of months ago. It will be interesting to see if it now brings $29,900. Who says inflation is dead?
Good info, guys. Yes, this ’67 has made the rounds. However, I’d LOVE to own it.
Beautiful VW, but grossly overpriced.
Wow – what a beautiful 67! Looks like a brand new car.
Nice to reference from, but big money.
Lottery money for me !
You’re welcome. Ha.
Do you happen to know if this is a numbers matching 67?
It is indeed.
There is a nice Zenith Blue 67 that was just listed on The Samba. It is priced at $10,000 and looks like a solid car. It is worth checking out.
I know this is a 67 forum, but I just took delivery of a 66 restored Beetle with very little documentation. The dealer bought it at auction but the car didn’t come with much paperwork about the restoration. Any suggestions on how I might find details around the history and restoration that was done? Sorry for hijacking this thread and the amateurish questions, but any help is appreciated.
Looking forward on catching the “bug” of vintage VWs… Pun intended :-)
The smoke signals are out to the ’67 community. We will have some answers soon.
First, let me direct you to my friend’s WebSite specifically oriented to 1966 Beetles:
The dealer surely has some contact from the former owner. I think that by law such documents should be forth-coming. At least ask the dealer–explain what you need and why. If he’s at all a “car guy” he should be moved to try to discover information which will help you.
If this fails, you might visit a Title Company (not a “title loan company–but a company that deals in tracking down lost owners, etc., etc). I have found these people to be helpful. It may cost something but could be worth it.
Find a good knowledgeable VW mechanic and, if possible, a good solid VW club. The mechanic should be able to look at the car and show you what has been done. VW club people generally are going to have at least one savvy ’66 person in their group who can talk intelligently with you.
And, above all–drive and enjoy your car! Happy Motoring!
Thanks for the welcome and the link!
I will contact the dealer again on Monday, but doubt they will be much help. The car is a CA car with Black plates (not sure if they’re reissued or original) and the work seems to be high quality. Based on the limited info I have, it seems like the work was done between 12 and 24 months ago. Here is a pic of the car I found on Pinterest …not sure how or if I could load my own pics on this thread, so the Pinterest pic will have to do ;)
That looks like an amazing car!
