Now this is my kind of listing! The seller is upfront, although lacking in details, and seems honest about the condition of this convertible Beetle. He admits he can’t really call it a “barn find” as it’s parked in his barn and has been for a while. He bought and drove this Bug when he was in college, then put it in storage about 26 years ago. It wasn’t in very good shape when he parked it, which he admits. He even warns you that it was a college kid’s car and that you should take that into account when you bid! I can already tell, I’d like to deal with this seller. It doesn’t hurt that his barn appears to be packed with classic cars either! You can have a look at this Beetle here on eBay in Hartford, Connecticut.
The seller outlines just about all the major issues with their car. It has rust, needed brake and exhaust work when it was parked, and today it is either a parts car or a very ambitious project. They also state that they have the keys and title, but have no idea where they are, so they have listed it as having neither just to play it on the safe side. Oh and just to clarify, his old records and boxes from his dorm room are not included with the car! Bidding is starting at $1,500 with no reserve, so whoever wins gets it. And if you can’t get it moved out immediately, that’s alright, you can store it here for free until spring time. So does anyone here need a convertible Beetle parts or project car?
