1500 Single Carb Engine 3 Speed manual Trans Newer Paint and
Interior 1967 VW BEETLE Volkswagen marked 18 years of increased
sales in 1967, selling 1,921,013 vehicles worldwide. U.S. Beetle
sales climbed to 320,692 units with 6349 Cabriolets, but the
company's share of the import market dropped to 57 % as GM used
Buick to sell German Opels and Chrysler bought Britain's Rootes
group, releasing some Hillman and Sunbeam models on America. The
big news was the 1500 Beetle, powered by the 53 bhp 1493 cc engine,
which was offered in addition to the 40 bhp, 1285cc 1300 unit.
Sealed beam headlights replaced the old sloping variety but the
old-fashioned bumpers with loop over riders remained. The rear
suspension gained an equalizer spring, running from one axle tube
to another, connected by rods to lessen the stress on the torsion
bars. U.S Beetles also gained a dual circuit braking system and a
12-volt electrical system, but it appears to have been phased in on
the 1500 model gradually in October. Wipers now had 2-speed motors.
Prices increased with the 1967 Deluxe Beetle now $1639, Sunroof
Beetle $1729, and Cabriolet remaining at $2075. This nicely
restored VW Beetle has the 1500 single carb engine with the 3 speed
manual transmission. It has newer paint and interior. This classic
runs and looks great and is ready to cruise.
