Ebay Any Beetle fans here?

No not the band! The car!

New client of mine and this is the first item up for sale. It's a 1974 VW Super Bug Convertible. Original motor and tranny with 64k miles. Runs and drives great. Completely restored and always garaged since. The owner is a enthusiast and gives the car an honest, overall 7.8 out of 10.

Not only did I want to share the bug, but I wanted you guys to see the cars in the background. I didn't want to act like a noob and run around taking pictures of all his toys on our first dealing, so maybe once I sell the bug and I go back I'll get some nice shots of his collection.

He had a Roll's Royce on the lift in his other garage to install a new transmission. ------- thing was mint as mint can get. Huge car. I'd love to sell it for him. lol

If any of you bros know of any bettle/bug guys out there let me know. Probably going to list it soon. Looking to get $9700 for it.

I like beetles, but not super beetles. I like the older oval window bugs.
I really like karmann ghias.

This car is a PERFECT candidate for a big block motor/tranny swap.

Yeah this isn't much my taste personally, but its super clean.

I've been doing a bit of research on it and I think I'll have a hard time getting him close to $10k. $8500-$9000 tops is what I'm thinking.

I hate selling cars for people. Its always the hardest thing to come together on a price. Everyone always thinks their ---- is worth a million dollars, but when it comes to cars its really hard to get them to budge on the price.

I can't believe what a clean bug interior looks like, not sure I've ever seen one.
