Value of a 72 beetle
Looking at a post on CL for a pretty good condition beetle, speedometer is broken apparently. He's asking $2100 for it, which seems pretty high to me. What would you say is reasonable?
depends on location, amount of rust, and overall condition of car. also, what you plan on doing with the car. if it's solid (no rust), runs, drives, and everything is there and functional, it should be worth it.
