Fantastic, nice find. :thumbup:

Good project for someone, lets just hope it doesn't end up on it's arse and some snide Fuchs in pursuit of fashion.

I did think it was a bit pricey, yes. Not that I have any real idea what it is actually worth. It has all the Kab only bits which seems to be a real plus point on a reasonably early one.

Nah...it's not really pricey.

When was the last time you saw a small window OG UK RHD cabriolet for sale on its OG plate? It's on ebay now, currently £2k.

I suppose, just my gut reaction when I saw it. I guess it wouldn't actually take a lot of cash to get it on the road and preserved, the original paint looks like it's got a few years left in it yet.

It needs going back together, some rear wings found and painted, a good polish, and then some crossplies to finish it off. :thumbup:

I'm really starting to get a hankering for 'early' Kabs.

If it´s as solid as it looks then I´d say thats a fair price. Don´t like it? Go find a better one, if you can.

You'll never get what you want Rob unless you get that cash out. Consider its worth when up and running.:smile:

Then Rob must be aware of today's values. :?

Owning one does not mean someone still can't look around.:p

You really should have kept yours '50 Karmann - one of the finest in the UK. :wink:

Will it make the £10k mark though I wonder?

I am really tempted by this but have promised to buy no more 'keepers' for the time being.

That just means the advert's been withdrawn. The ebay loon-a-thon continues apace.

Agreed. As the ebay price crept up to the price on the other advert I guess the owner thought financially it would be better to let it run on ebay.

Will be interesting to see what this one finally makes. I reckon it will be in the £5-5.5k mark.
