1967 marks a high water mark in Beetle history. It’s the last year VW’s finest was offered with sloping headlights, swoopy front wings, long bonnets and slim bumpers. Basically all the styling clues we love that US crash regulations did away with the following year. Thanks America. This example may have been born in Germany, but it was raised right here in dear old Blighty, which makes it a rare survivor from the golden era. Rare, because it’s so original and in such lovely condition and yet has spent it’s entire life right here in the UK. This is in no small part down to the mileage – a mere 53,000 miles from new – which are fully documented and verified by the large history file that accompanies this car.
Whilst it’s had paint in the past, all of the work carried out was to a high standard and what has been done, was a good five or six years ago.
It’s obvious this little survivor has been cherished throughout its life, all it needs now is someone to continue that trend.
