1968 vw beetle obo
« on: Jan 14, 13, 20:57 »
what i have here is a 1968 beetle in really good condition,
it's a great car, lots of work has been done but just to many dam cars.

stuff that has been done to the car:

1600 dualport engine out of a later bus
original BUGPACK exhaust
fairly new heater channels
fairly new drivers side floor pan
new front apron (welded in) sheetmetal from cip1
new front bulkhead (welded in ) sheetmetal from cip1
new bird cage for steering column
low back bucket seats,
early bus steering wheel
karmann ghia front disk brakes
karmann ghia adjustable front end - lowered a bit in the front
lowered 1spline in the rear
rebuilt 31 pict single barrel carburetor
pre 67 small bumpers,
ORIGINAL EMPY 8 spoke wheels summers (80%)
original black steelies with decent metal center caps winters (80%)
brand new in box windshield wiper assembly (not installed)

comes with:
1500 single port original engine
extra set of wheels obviously previously mentioned
extra doghouse and random parts for the vehicle,
header exhaust
lots more to much to list

what the vehicle needs:

currently is not aircared,
there is a little bit of rust beside the rear bottom floorboard ( can be easily fixed )
the wiring to go through, everything works accept the signals, have bought new switch, just haven't been able to hook it up.
a good look through, everything seems and appears to be in working order, have driven the car and it runs great,
rear brakes need work though, just an fyi, goes into gear just fine!
and it will need the aluminum heating pipe throughout the vehicle to use heat,

as for price lets start at 7000 as i have to list a "price"

Asking WAY too much bro. List it as $3500 and you'll get some interest.
Don't mean to be rude, just being realistic.

I'm pretty positive that that thing has been sold and re listed at least twice on craigslist since this original posting.
