Hello, I am considering buying my very first project car. I've found a 1968 almost completely original, no modification, clean title... I just love the car. They are asking $1500, doesn't run. Is $1500 too much?

that seems a bit high for a non running bug unless it has lots of new parts or something else making it special I paid that for a running 71 granted it was leaking oil from the oil cooler seals and the brakes need work

I just sold a running/ driving 62' deluxe to a fellow member for that price....was it a deal? Yes...in this economy, everything should be a deal!! Unless it's a SUPER STRAIGHT car...and won't take it much to get running, $1500 isn't bad. But factor in that you'll need to go through the entire brake system, and unless you do the work...that can get spendy really quick for a thorough job (metal lines and rubber lines). Post some pics up to get a better estimation in the "car pics" section.

Amen. I got what I thought was a good deal on my bus at $1200 at the time (it was running, sorta) and I'm still tallying up what I put into it to make it safe and mechanically sound. Not talking body stuff either. It's easy to fall in love with a VW, but be prepared. You've found the forum though. Smile

Mitch is my mechanic
