The 1967 Volkswagen Beetle is already highly sought-after thanks to some unique features only for this year. So to find one that was also predominately a California car and was restored to be an excellent driver means this is one for the true Bug enthusiasts.
We all love the iconic streamlined Beetle shape, but you can instantly tell this one was given extra attitude during restoration. The quality respray of the factory-correct L282 lotus white paint shows great shine and smooth coverage, so this one draws attention. And that's what you want on a '67. These had special single-year features. Up front it was the updated headlights that still had the front vents, and in the rear the decklid was special for this one year only. In fact, this one has been well-maintained and correct, right down to the original side glass. So this one has a distinct and classic style that runs all the way to its core. But those 15-inch BRM wheels and the forward leaning stance lets you know that you're going to love it for far more than just its classic style.
While the Beetle is known for being simple to fix and maintain, it's also a treat to see that someone made a substantial investment in restoring the interior. Newer door panels, headliner, and carpeting make this an inviting atmosphere. Plus, the Procar bucket seats really offer terrific bolstering for all-day comfort. You have the right 1967-specific elements, like the rubberized dash knobs and the knob-less ash tray. There are plenty of upgrades, but they have also been done with care. For example, the factory brake warning light in the center of the dash is now actually a handier oil pressure warning light. The auxiliary gauge trio has been expertly integrated into the dash, and they are VDO readouts to match the VW factory gauge brand. And the Grant sports steering wheel, performance shifter, and Sunpro tach all work together to elevate the driving fun.
You can instantly see this one has been upgraded in the engine bay by the unmistakable look of the dual carb setup that really gives these Beetles some extra legs. Plus, this is a larger 1641cc motor with 87mm pistons and desirable dual port heads. It's a fully rebuilt setup as part of this car's restoration, and so you get a strong and extra powerful VW motor that still provides that iconic air-cooled hum. Even the four-speed manual transmission was completely rebuilt during restoration, so you have a smooth action to go with your upgraded power.
The sale comes complete with a car cover, owner's manual, and about $1,300 worth of spare components.
