Used 1967 Volkswagen Beetle for sale in Ruskin, Florida
Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this professionally restored 1967 Volkswagen Beetle. This baby blue Beetle has less than 200 miles since being restored and has been so stored in a climate-controlled garage. The 1967 VW is the most desirable of all vintage Beetles due to the 12-volt electrical system and it’s the last year of the European body style. It also housed the largest engine to date. This car had upgraded to Coker radial tires with a spare in the trunk with a modern adaptor for modern equipment. This Beetle also has a Sapphire radio system installed and ready to help you jam your favorite tunes. Beetle featured a rear-located, rear-wheel drive, air-cooled four-cylinder, boxer engine in a two-door bodywork featuring a flat front windscreen, accommodating four passengers and providing luggage storage under the front bonnet and behind the rear seat—and offering a coefficient of drag of 0.41; to this relatively good CD, the also streamlined rear of car was of help. The bodywork attached with eighteen bolts to its nearly flat chassis which featured a central structural tunnel. Front and rear suspension featured torsion bars along with front stabilizer bar—providing independent suspension at all wheels. Certain initial features were subsequently revised, including mechanical drum brakes, split-window rear windows, mechanical direction-indicators and the non-synchronized gearbox. Other features, including its distinctive overall shape, endured. In fact, the Beetle was prized for its seemingly unchanged appearance and marketed to American consumers as the anti-GM and Ford: We do not believe in planned obsolescence. We dont change a car for the sake of change. Its engine, transmission, and cylinder heads were constructed of light alloy. An engine oil cooler (located in the engine fans shroud) ensured optimal engine operating temperature and long engine life, optimized by a thermostat that bypassed the oil cooler when the engine was cold. Later models of the carburetor featured an automatic choke. Engine intake air passed through a metallic filter, while heavier particles were captured by an oil bath. After 1960, steering featured a hydraulic damper that absorbed steering irregularities. To see 100+ HD pictures and videos of this 1967 Volkswagen Beetle please visit GatewayClassicCars.com.
