1969 Volkswagen Beetle

$_57 (1)

Towards the end of the 1960s, Volkswagen was planning for the eventual demise of the Beetle, but it still wasn’t clear exactly the direction the company would take. There were a few fits and starts with front-engined, water-cooled models and developments on the tried and true rear-engine, air-cooled model, such as the 412. Volkswagen even was looking at a mid engine layout as flüssig magazine detailed a few months ago in their piece on the EA266. The Beetle sedan soldiered on for a while, though, with the last one rolling off the assembly line in Germany in 1977. The convertibles would cease production in 1979, with Beetle production continuing on in Brasil until 1996 and Mexico until 2003.

This 1969 example for sale in Illinois has been lovingly restored in a pretty Diamond Blue, having only passed through the hands of two owners.

This is one nicely done Beetle. Generally I’m a fan of the pre ’68 Beetles, especially those done up in a Cal Look. However, the restoration job on this ’69 is impressive, right down to those polished trunk hinges. This car did not look this good when it left Wolfsburg. The asking price is about right when it comes to a late sixties Bug in good nick. These aren’t the most desirable of years, but there’s a certain charm to the later version of the People’s Car, as they began to be overtaken by more modern machinery. My father drove a 1967 Beetle and I have fond memories growing up with that car. Maybe its nostalgia talking, but the Beetle will always be a legend in my book.

  1. Gorgeous shade of blue.

  2. Being a single port head that should be a 1.5 liter and it has the wrong air filter housing.
    nit & piks for sure! Nice car.
    I prefer the look of a 67 or earlier even though they have swing axles.

    In the old days we used to build super reliable 67-70 single port engines by adding an aftermarket oil pump that had an oil filter along with adapting a Super Beetle oil cooler and fan housing.

    I never seen a modified big bore VW engine last… So we used to install Porsche 356 engines into bugs. We could buy a mildly damaged running 356 for $500. Imagine having one of those today!!!

  3. I guess it’s a generational thing but pimping out any car with supper big rims or as in the case here…….blindingly white dash board surround is just damn ugly.
