VW BEETLE-1967-1500-Beautifully restored-One of the best.
Vw Beetle,1967 flatscreen,original 1500.Immaculately presented in original colour of Zenith Blue.This is a late 1966 build then 1st registered new early 1967.Huge restoration carried out,with a few nice upgrades but retaining many of its originality.Not only with colour choice, but 6 volt electrics, its original rare to see 1500cc engine with correct suffix etc.The restoration, which though not documented was obviously very extensive.Completed approx 10 years ago and according to previous owner costing some 15000 pounds the quality of work has really stood the test of time.The current speedo reading is approx 19000 miles showing very little use and the quality of work is apparent.This Beetle has had a pampered life since the complete overhaul years ago.
The bodywork and paintwork are as straight as they come. The panel gaps and all over stance are spot on.The desirable front sloping headlights and the American style towel rail bumpers really set this Beetle off.This 67 Beetle would compete on any showground and may even take prizes if thats your thing.It would appear that every rubber seal on the body has been replaced new and the all important stainless trim which is so often missed has also all been replaced new.The sidesteps are as new ,the front complete correct headlight assemblies are as new.The opening front window 1/4 lites have been replaced new.The whole of the exterior is fairly close to perfection. The polished ali Porsche Fuch replica wheels are in excellent condition with locking wheel nuts and fairly new michelin radials.With Porsche centre caps.
The interior has had a complete refurbishment including the headlining .The Black trim all done to original spec is in 1st class order.It has quality Grey carpeting which shows no sign of wear.The period 3 spoke polished ali and wood rimed steering wheel and the wicker parcel shelf really set this interior off.The whole of the interior is again close to faultless.The boot compartment to the front looks brand new and houses a brand new Porsche Fuch replica wheel with new tyre .
The original and rare to see 1500 runs very well performs just as it should.Like all good Beetles,feels like it will just keep running forever.The engine is as it should be with original air cleaner assembly,6 volt dynamo,all original air ducting and correct original tinware.Very clean engine and engine bay.A nice and sensible upgrade has been done on the braking system.Front brake discs First year ..This all looks fairly new and is a nice safety feature to have.
To summarise this 67 Beetle has it all.1967 was seen by many as the best year and as such commands just a little more interest. Why? 1967 Beetles came in two options, 1300cc and 1500cc. Not only did the 1500cc come with disc brakes and the more powerful engines, there were also a few one year only mods on the 1300cc and 1500cc that make them stand out.Restored to a very high standard and at huge expense but retains alot of correct features from this year.Mechanically and cosmetically excellent.Not a fresh restoration,yet looks like it was done 6 months ago.
