Selling a Vintage Volkswagen

Selling a Vintage Volkswagen
Here’s a wealth of information in regards to selling a Vintage VW, from our good friend Chris Vallone of Classic VW Bugs in NY. One of the many things Chris and 1967beetle.com agree on is the lack of photos and information in current market listings. When selling a Vintage VW, it’s an up front investment. Chris explains below.

Let’s also talk a bit about the different types of sellers.

SOLD: L633 VW Blue ’67 Beetle

FOR SALE: L633 VW Blue ’67 Beetle

Just what we like to see here at 1967beetle.com; L633 VW Blue in all of its glory. This one will surely go fast. I’ve seen this car personally, and know the amount of detail that has gone into the restoration.

“The new engine was installed at 53,288, so it is not even broken in. It drives like new, no slop in the steering, adjusted just right. Drives straight and strong. No rust at all. There is a small dent on the top from a tree branch, bummer. I had a dent guy estimate $250 to repair it, but I would have had to pull the headliner. Otherwise, straight and clean. I did not replace the headliner or seat covers, they look to be original and in decent shape. The headliner is worn where the back seat rubs it on the side rails, but overall in great shape. The front seats look great, but the top of the back has small cracks from the sun. The transmission was built to ’67 specs. I can show it on Sunday’s and some evenings.”
