The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally constructed to be the German transportation for the masses vehicle, the same way Ford’s Model T was for America in the early 20th century. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the “Volks-wagen” or “People’s Car” had to meet four requirements: be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of reaching 60mph and feature an air-cooled rear engine. Porsche and his staff tried various combinations with the aerodynamic “beetle” shape and ultimately it was the designated Type 38, with split rear windows that became the Type 60 or “KdF-Wagen” (translated as the “Strength through Joy Car”).
After World War II the then British-controlled VW Factory was rebuilt and the model slowly entered mass production. The Type 1’s unconventional appeal in the traditional large car market of the United States eventually brought in strong sales figures and resulted in Volkswagen producing more Beetle derivatives, such as the Type 2 Microbus, Karmann Ghia, the Thing and the Type 3 platform of air-cooled flat-4 engine vehicles. Eventually the sales trend of the imported Volkswagens caught the eye of American Auto Makers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change the fact that the American Public had become smitten by the “Bug.”
1967 was the final year for what many Volkswagen historians refer to as the “classic” Beetle. The iconic US specification “over rider” or “towel rack” bumper design were discontinued for the 1968 model. Upfront single beam headlights were now standard as was a 12 volt electrical system for the first time. A dual circuit brake system was also standard while numerous body panels including the hood, decklid and front fenders are specific to the 1967 model year. This combination of updates, features and “classic” Beetle appearance has led many VW enthusiasts to consider 1967 the best year for the Beetle and examples are highly sought after by both collectors and enthusiasts worldwide today!
The 1967 Volkswagen Beetle featured here is finished in stunning Zenith Blue over a complimenting black interior. This particular example has been subjected to a complete, body-off frame restoration and presents wonderfully today. As a 1967 model, this Beetle boasts several one year only features and this example has been fitted with a generous assortment of period correct accessories including a roof luggage rack with wood slats, lady bug floor mats, mud flaps with the VW logo and polished gravel guards.

Finance rates as low as 8.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle.

All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
