MORE INFO HERE OF THE MODEL ....
this model was made for 1 year only and all collectors love this model alot as it still had the classic look yet had the 12v system and an upgraded engine .
london was in full swing - hemlines were rising and morals falling . more importantly all manner of groundbreaking modifications were made to the peoples car - not least a whole lot of technical changes that would take the beetle into the next decade .heres how that infamous year and the milestone changes to the bug unfolded .
ken dodds christmas show was the most watched on the box - the beetles released sergeant pepper in a haze of drug fuelled genius - che guevara is shot and a man is given a new heart for the 1st time -the dartford tunnel is opened - plans for the creation of a new town called milton keynes are revealed - and spurs beat chelsea 2-1 in the FA cup .
1967 was a hell of a year
youll not find another opera bgw spectre like this with the specs above - for those who cant afford the lovely blown willy's 1940s icon for £50.000 then this is as close as it gets to it .
