If you want to talk deal, pick up the phone
and make your serious offer.
Before you send me an email asking me for my "best price, bottom-line or asking price" let me just make a suggestion based on 36 years of buying and selling experiences. Deals are made through conversations, not texting, not emailing or conversations without even knowing who or what you are talking to, they happen throughpersonal contact. I want my my clients to know who they are trying to make a deal with. I want to know their real intent to buy also. This equation does not exist with "What's your best price?" and no personal contact. I have gone to great lengths to find this incredible vehicle, make sure it's the best it can be for you and present it in a way that no other seller does online. I do that so we can talk, make a clear deal, fair for both sides and watch a happy buyer enjoy their new ride. If you just don't have the gumption to make contact and you just want an idea of price, look at what the market values posted above say, they are fairly accurate on AVERAGE vehicles across the US. If you think this vehicle is average, above or below, bid accordingly or. . . pick up the phone and have a pleasant conversation with a real enthusiast that can make your deal on the spot. Keeping it real.
Let's make a deal...Call me
When I see a Bug for sale, it brings back a lifetime of memories for me. My parents had them, I remember riding in the luggage area behind the rear seat when I was really young (fifty years ago) and I can't help but think I want to own that one. This is my third 1967 Beetle and really, I think it is my favorite. The last '67 I had was a nice driver quality car but not fully restored like this one and my first '67 I had was back when I was only 16 years old and it was a Baja; really loved that one too. When it comes to vintage VW Beetles, the 1967 have a special kind of flair for me. First year for the 12 volt, still had the chrome small bumpers and the metal dash and the fuel tank inside the front trunk. Just a bit more modern without the changes that came with the '68s. Who doesn't love the low back seats and the flat windshield? Would l love to keep it? Oh hell yes, but it's more important for me to sell these dreams to those who have sought them out as much as I have. Truly my passion more so than the car itself. If you are looking for this kind of automotive history. This should hit your fancy like it did mine. The beauty of this Beetle is in the details. This is where you will find I didn't miss an inch for you. Hundreds of pictures. close ups from top to bottom and I'll also tell you what we did so you don't have to figure it out on your own.

History, Recent Repairs & Work Done
The first time I saw this Beetle, I instantly feel in love. Who doesn't love a restored 1967 Beetle? Yes, I have had them as old as the late 50s and even some of the new generation Beetles, but the '67 holds a special interest for me. In 1978, the second car I bought was a 1967 VW Beetle Baja. It had a Porsche 1600 engine in it and was fast and fun. This Beetle was parked on the street just down the road from my shop looking just like you see here. I inquired about it and had to have it after hearing and seeing all that had been done to it. The owner, had no intentions of ever selling the car. When he started the restoration, he did a lot more than what most do to make it super nice. The car was stripped down to bar metal, window and full interior removed then painted in the original color, Lotus White. The interior would not go in until the car was fully insulated with Dynamat, front to rear and even inside the trunk. When the paint was finished, new rubber seals, new felt, all new rubber everywhere and it looks like all the original chrome was kept because it was in pretty great shape. I think I would have put on new hub caps, but these are original to the car. He had the engine rebuilt, the seals and gaskets all new on the transmission and new axle boots too. He didn't put on new heater tubes because it's Las Vegas. We have enough heat here. The undercarriage was the only thing left original and it just looked dirty and had it's original rubberized undercoating that was flaking off. So we removed it and refinished the floors as they are now. The only floor blemish was in the usual battery tray, where the leaks from the battery had rotted through about a 3 inch hole that the owner just patched and sealed. It was done OK, but I always prefer a patch panel welded into place. But it's just not too bad as you will see. Aside from that floor blemish, this car has been a desert car it's whole life and has never seen any body damage or rust anywhere. Not even in the heater channels. Fenders, front spare tire well, rear valance, all spectacular condition as you will see in the pictures. Seats were fully rebuilt with new foam and springs, new carpet and headliners installed properly with window out of the car. Plane and simple, this car is a stunning beautiful driver. The tires are old and although they have full tread, you can tell the heat has cracked them just a little. I would not hesitate to drive this car anywhere in town, but if I were to think about driving it cross country, I would probably pop for new tires before a long drawn out trip. Aside from that, this car is really nice. So nice and solid, and super sealed with all new rubber that I think this car would even float. Let's not do that though.
When you see a Beetle this nice, I know it probably brings back great memories for you too. Maybe you never owned one or rode in one when you were young, but you have always wanted one. Finding one this nice though is not so easy. First of all, there are still thousands of vintage Beetles still on the roads, I see them just like you do. Finding one with original metal, fenders, doors, trunk and hood...well, that's another story. One you won't find near anywhere. Finding one this nicely restored where you can still drive it to enjoy and not feel like you need to put it on blocks in a museum, that's tough to find as well. This is that Beetle. Not a museum piece even though it looks like one, but fully restored to a point that it can be driven and enjoyed daily and the appearance of a brand new car. Most of my clients tell me, THIS is what they are looking for. Extreme Quality that they can confidently drive daily and enjoy,
One look inside here and you get to start seeing the high quality of the restoration. Continue to look closely and you will see just how nice this car is top to bottom.
The interior front and rear seat materials are as the factory would have looked, the headliner, steering wheel, door panels and belts all just like 1967. Black and white beauty.
Best of all, no cut dash or alterations to the original metal inside or outside the car. I think the radio is original to the car too.
The front trunk is lined with Dynamat and a carpet kit, very nice touch of course.
The engine date codes out as a 1968 1500 44hp engine.

A note from the owner.
I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I’ve been in business, have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I’ve discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the bidder, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.
With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner and Chris, owner of A-Best Auto Repair in Henderson, Nevada has my back. He and his crew can fix anything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name, no job is too big and no small detail unimportant. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows my writer to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless he thinks it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.
After the vehicle is fully sorted it arrives at our facility where it encounters the suspicious eye of Tom, my writer that creates the presentations you see on eBay. He believes absolutely nothing I or anyone else tells him about the car as he combs over every inch, researches its history and documents originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I’ve converted a paint booth, especially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.
Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, we film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital, laser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? We do.
No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase, that my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.
If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger, I will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a “used car dealer.”
Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.
If you hit the reserve, the decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.
