Pros

Easy of repairablity, parts are plentiful and cheap. Great on Gas 28+ mpg. Fun to drive.

Cons

This VW is not comparable to modern cars, therefore I will not delve into the cons a
modern car driver might think this VW may have. Mine has great heat so I want to hear no
complaints.

This Is A Real Volkswagen, Rear Engine Air-cooled Flat 4 Power! — This was the height of quality for VW in the 60's. The 1967 model Typ 1 Beetle came with the largest engine till that point a 1493 cc, 53 hp horizontally opposed air-cooled engine mounted in the rear. It was the first year for 12 volt electrical system, upright headlights with no outer cover. It was also the only year for the rear deck lid, bumper and back up lights.The wheels, hubcaps, and emergency flashers systems were carry overs from the previous 1966 model year.

My 67 We Dubbed Rose. She Was Porsche Signal Red. — The '67 for the fans of VW's is the Messiah of VW's, in my opinion. A perfect blend of the the pre-67 body styling and the 67 and newer abilities and engine, it is possibly the best of them all. In the VW family, you can find no other car with more one-year-only options and features. Built as a classic-styled car, it has both class and shine. Built as a hot-rod, it has endless potential. Drop a 356 motor in it and you end up with a machine that will outdo most of what is on the road today.

Nothing Runs Like A Beetle! — This was my first car. While the performance wasn't so hot, this little car was, quite simply, amazing. This was one of the greatest cars I have ever owned. Started every time, never got hot, and took the abuse given to it teaching my little sister how to drive a stick shift!

Fantastic — If you have driven 70's models this is way better. The steering is very light, it feels a lot bigger inside, and looks better. My car handles great, no dangerous under steer or over steer. If other owners have this problem you might not have the tire pressure at 17psi front and 26psi rear. I would recremend this car to anyone looking for a easy project or a good car.

The Worst Car You'll Ever Love — List many folks my age, my first car was a VW Beetle. The '67 Beetle was the first to come with a 12 volt electrical system, a gas guage as standard equipment and the first with no reserve gas tank. $5.00 would fill the tank and I could drive all week on 10 gallons of gas. Better hope you didn't have to use the windshield washers too often, or your spare tire would go flat. Single-ported 1600cc engine provided about 58 hp into a 4 speed transaxle gearbox. Had to make sure that the ice scraper was nearby when driving in the winter, as that was how most VW drivers kept ice off the inside of the windshield. The cars were clunky, cold, cramped, sluggishly performing, and quirky as hell. The rear end was so heavy that if it ever cut loose on you, it'd be the front end before you knew it. I can't wait to own another one!

Pros

The styling of this car is timeless.  It is fun to drive, easy to park and easy to repair.

Cons

Can be a little temperamental.  Does require regular maintenance to ensure it will take you to & from your destination.  Without proper maintenance it will leave you walking

Great Little Car — After almost 50 years working on cars, the simplicity of this little engineering marvel never ceases to amaze me. When I was younger, it was all about horsepower; now it is about engineering, simplicity, and keeping this great little car alive and running well.

Nice! — Very comfortable to ride.. It has a unique look for a old sports compact car. It has a good quality to think that this car is bought by my grand father way back 1968 and until know its still alive. But you have to expect some major or minor repairs for it is a vintage car..

Buy One If You Can. They Were Built To Last!! — More bugs made than any other model or make on the planet! No make of car had the testing before production runs like the VW! An entire sub-culture was started by this car. It floats! Best car ever made! Done!
