Bid on a 1972 Volkswagen VW Beetle Convertible - Appraised Value $11,500
We have a Classic Car! A 1972 Volkswagen VW Beetle Convertible with less than 91,000 miles.
We'd like to thank Scott Gunther of Somerville for his very generous donation!
The entire body has been repainted, seats reupholstered, convertible top replaced. Has been living in arid Colorado; much kinder to cars than the Northeast weather. The tires have less than 10,000 miles of wear. The engine was just inspected and new carburetor, fuel filter, and fuel gauge were installed. Bottles of fuel additive, a car cover, the Club lock and front seat covers will come with this car. This 1972 VW Beetle Convertible has passed the Massachusetts inspection test.
Some quirky things to note: Driver's door lock is "sticky" and, sometimes, will not unlock. The driver's seat is stuck in the furthest position. The window handle on the rear driver's side is missing.
Bourne Auto covered the cost of the appraisal done by Auto Appraisal Group (AAG). The full report is available in the pdf window below.
