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 couldn't find it.
This beautiful 67 Beetle has come through the website once before
and it sold quickly for a record price and now it is returning for another pass.
The car is now located in Southern California , has remained in the same impeccable condition
and only a handful of miles added to the odometer since.
The photos above show it in front of the current owners home in California
and the photos below show the car in Arizona when I photographed it personally just a couple years back.
The color 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 at the time of these images, the car has now returned to Southern California where it was restored a
number of years ago
and I remember when it was first completed and displayed at an event

I first saw it.
