1967 VW Beetle Convertible For Sale


This is the very best example of a restored US spec 1967 Beetle convertible that I have ever seen.
The car is absolutely spectacular and the level and depth of the restoration is mind boggling.
The restorer of this car went in deep...real deep. The whole goal being to make it as accurate and perfect as possible
using all the correct original German parts from end to end. The more I looked at this car the more I became
damn near speechless about it...I tried to look for something wrong and just couldnt find it.



The color too is one of the very best of the era...Java Green and it just looks like a jewel sitting there in the sunlight.


Located in Arizona, the car was restored in Southern California a number of years ago
and I remember when it was first completed and displayed at an event out here.
It just blew everyone away. The car looks as amazing now as it did when I first saw it.
It has travelled only 40 miles since completion, it is truly better than new.
It is a fully sorted car, runs and drives fantastic...turn key, ready to go
(or to show)


The restoration quality is unsurpassed...the fit and finish, the smoothness of the paint, etc...this is as good as it gets.


The car is stellar and all stock, numbers matching, etc.
If there is a part on this car, it is correct to the car and the period with the only exception
being the radial tires...however the width of the whitewall is period correct.


Look at that reflection!
Like an absolute mirror.


Details such as the wipers...its the right stuff.


Smooooooth!


Top is superb and correct.
Matching top boot as well.


Wheels are the proper 1966-67 slotted wide 5 rims with the flat caps and they are powder coated and painted
in the proper color combination.


Glass and rubber is all superb and everything fits and functions so nicely.
Rolling the windows up and down is a pleasure (that perhaps I got into just a wee too much...but damn it fent nice!)


So clean!


The car is fitted with a few trim accessories such as the finger guards under the handles, the door edge guards and gravel guards.
These are all NOS German original examples...not aftermarket reproductions and the quality is evident.


Headlight rings are the genuine original 67 Hella items with the SB 12 markings


Gravel guards are the genuine VW items...compare these to the cheesy reproductions out there...a totally different breed.

Rear bumper is the proper 67 only German item

Details in all the deep corners are spot on...check out the original wiring connectors and the proper off white wiring covering.


The interior is spectacular as well...but more on that later.


Washer bottle is in fantastic shape and the correct original tire pressure tag is here as well as the filler hose.


The numbers matching facory 1500cc engine is perfection and correct down to the original German hose clamps
and everything...it is spectacular and runs superb.




OK...Im going to say that the spring should have been painted body color, not galvanized...anyone care to
dispute that?  Regardless this is a nice touch.


Dust cover on the hood latch...when is the last time you saw one of these?


Wow...just wow.

Jack has been fully restored


Heres the sort of detail that I just go nuts seeing...the correct insulation material under the heat riser tins...
