Description:

Today, as it was decades ago, it''s fairly cheap and easy to get into a VW Beetle and start enjoying the best hobby on earth. This wonderful ONE OWNER 1967 Beetle is a fantastic choice: simple, honest transportation that''s a heck of a lot of fun, all in a bright red shell. First off, restoration costs on a Beetle aren''t any cheaper than for any other car, and with a long-term love affair with his car, the owner clearly spent a lot of money to get this one into its current spectacular condition. The bright red paint is quite flashy, and this Beetle is exactly the kind of car you would have purchased in 1967 when VW counter-culture was at its height. The shine is certainly brilliant thanks to modern urethane paint, and while these were famously well-built little cars, there''s no factory that can beat the attention to detail a dedicated owner can give a car. As a result, panel gaps are excellent, the finish is uniform, and it all fits together very well indeed. Fans will appreciate the early style taillights, chrome bumpers, and exposed running boards, which are all part of the Beetle''s charm, and from what I hear, the 1967 and earlier cars are the owns that investors are seeking today for a benefit tomorrow. Interiors in the Beetle managed to be both spartan and cheerful, with smartly designed shapes and materials that were virtually indestructible. The high-back vinyl buckets aren''t stock, of course, but were borrowed from a ''68 and show the proper pattern on the vinyl that''s remarkably comfortable, even in the hot sun. The instrument panel is simple, with a single round speedometer that also houses a tiny fuel gauge in its center, but little else. The steering wheel is an exercise in minimalism, but with an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash and a Vintage Air A/C unit underneath, this is anything but a bare-bones Beetle. Door panels, carpets, and the unique perforated headliner (note the sunroof!) are all in excellent condition. It does carry a set of ubiquitous beetle floor mats, with the trunk showing what is likely the original mat and a vintage spare tire. That engine is 1493 cc of air-cooled simplicity, and in terms of reliability, few cars can match the Beetle''s track record. With good torque and virtually zero maintenance aside from making sure there''s oil in the crankcase, this is the kind of car you can jump in and just go without worries. It''s perfectly happy with today''s pump gas, and with prices creeping upwards, perhaps a thrifty hobby car is the smartest decision you can make-even today, the Beetle''s fuel economy is impressive. The engine bay is nicely detailed and full of correct components, from the oil bath air filter housing to a correct Bosh distributor cap, and a great big generator atop the engine itself. The A/C compressor is a tight fit, but all the components are tucked in there and look fairly OEM. Underneath, it''s quite solid, with good original floor pans and suspension and brake components that look like they''ve seen regular maintenance over the years. Newer chrome wheels add some sparkle and wear 165R15 radials that fill the fenders. If you''re looking for an inexpensive, fun way to get into old cars, this Beetle is an outstanding choice.
