Description:

Despite its wonderful lowered stance and slightly oversized rubber, this ultra-clean 1967 Volkswagen Beetle is the product of an exacting restoration that returned it to almost factory-fresh condition. If you''ve been watching the auctions and price guides, you know that these early Beetles are on the move, and this one has the right look to make it a wonderful addition to your collection. The soft Zenith Blue paint is your first tipoff that this car is something special. Everyone paints them some bright hue, but the guy who restored this one wanted the details and the quality to speak for him, so he went with subtle instead. Fit and finish are excellent thanks to a combination of legendary quality from the factory and a careful restoration that cut no corners. All the early VW design cues are there, from the flat windshield to the small marker and tail lights. The paint was done about three years ago and has been stored indoors since then, and it shows. The shine is just right and it''s not loaded up with metallic, so it has a correct 1967 look that''s immensely appealing. We could wear out the word "new" with all equipment that went into the restoration, but the list includes the running boards, the chrome bumpers, the emblems, and the weather-stripping. This is an extremely nice little Beetle. We''ll use the word "new" a lot more inside, where the interior has been completely restored to factory specs. The low-back buckets are a nice find and a welcome change from the high-back chairs that most of us are used to seeing in later Beetles, and they''re covered in correct woven vinyl seat covers. Factory-style carpets and matching black door panels are utilitarian but accurate, and again, it''s the quality that stands out more than the design itself-the car just feels substantial. The original dash has just the big speedometer with integral fuel gauge, but that''s all you need in the world''s most reliable air-cooled automobile, although the wood-rimmed Grant GT wheel is a welcome addition. A vintage AM/FM radio lives in the dash, and it was probably cutting-edge technology for a 1967 Volkswagen. Up front there''s a spotless trunk complete with a tool roll and a spare tire assembly that may very well be original. The 1600 cc flat-four was rebuilt to factory specs just 150 miles ago, so it''s ready to enjoy the moment it rolls off the trailer. While it was on the engine stand, it was filled with new internals that ensure long-term reliability, and after it was buttoned up, the engine and engine compartment were detailed for show. From the shiny pulleys on the factory generator to the original air cleaner and fan shroud, this is how it would have looked (probably better, actually) back on the showroom floor. It starts quickly and has that famous VW whistling exhaust note that is a big part of the Beetle''s charm. The floor pans are new, which is hardly a demerit in the VW world, and the brakes are all-new throughout. The suspension was subtly lowered and it uses slightly oversized wheels, but those 135/15 and 195/60/15 radials look great under the rounded fenders. Early Beetles restored to this level are fetching big numbers these days. If you want an excellent example, now is the time to buy and this is an outstanding candidate. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
