Value of a 72 beetle

Asked by Tristan Feb 12, 2011 at 11:56 PM about the 1972 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

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.
