It has still got another four days to run, I expect that it'll make more than £5K.

Well I feel sorry for them, the winning bidder is going to get mugged unless they know what they are buying. But on the flip side I just realised our red oval just went up in value! 80's revival must be the new look! :lol: :beer: :d

Yes, the harder you look the more interesting it gets, I just noticed the bonnet has no crest so that makes it possibly something like a 60-? bonnet, and the front valance has a strange shape to the bottom. I have posted it on the samba to get some more ideas and someone points out it could have been a lhd made to rhd hence the odd glovebox shapes which seems logical.

Also the front end being late 50's which was my first thought too.

'Dazed and confused' its the new trend I tell you! far more interesting than stock! :d You just watch, you start off with a few accessories, and before you know it you will be frenching in smoked 1303 flat rear lights into your split wings! :idea:

And yes, but No, but, I really DO like the chrome semaphores!

Also bearing in mind chrome tail lights and engine lid light really did come as chromed accessory items. Although, I think this car actually has them far more by accident than as a deliberate vintage style option :lol:

Q: hi mate is there any filler at all in the car? cheers tom

A: As far as I know there is not but you are more then welcome to check in person

I'd like to meet the person that got that dash in there with no filler!

The guy obviously hasnt got a clue, im sure he isnt trying to decieve people but he should have looked into it a little bit more!

The engine looks like an orignial 25 horse (im next to useless with splts so im probably wrong) so maybe bits like the rear window and engine are from the origianl "52 Split"?

I'm kind of with you too, I think it could be a 52 buried under there somewhere, but not sure how much. I know nothing about engines either, but from Thailand! it seems likely the original would have been kept on the road at all costs. The engine shot has been strategically taken to hide the wrong valance on the car ( like that small detail would be enough to put anyone off! :lol: )

But I disagree, I think the seller is fully aware of what he is selling, because you dont own 3 various model pre67 vw's and not know where to look to find out information. I think he simply privately imported a lemon and just wants to pass it on thats all. Which is certainly not a crime just misleading.

I think ebay is such a scary place to buy or sell a car. We have only bought 1 once but never sold one on there, and probably never will.

Yes,the fellas a bloody liar.

He doesn't know what he's talking about so he can't truthfully answer the questions.

So he should state that fact.

Yeah I think thats it, he doesn't have a clue, but is trying to make out that he does, whether or not to deceive people or to just sound knowledgeable?

His Anthracite bug looks really nice, if you've gotta have un-standard wheels have radars in my opinion! He does at no point show the number plate so maybe theres something going on there? Maybe he doesnt want people to find out it has been imported by checking the DVlA (if you can do that?)

Looks like the dip switch is in the wrong place too.

I asked a question about the body, and got this responce.

Quote:

"Hi, Thank you for your query. I am not sure what you are talking about. As far s I am aware this body is complete. I am not an expert but there are no joins to be found. I want to make sure I am selling the right thing so can you guide me? Regards Austin"

You see, now you are just being really cruel! :lol:

Yes, I cant figure out the dip switch either?! when did any beetle have them down there? But I am not really up on pre55 rhd cars though. But I thought they were a bit offset to the right for rhd and a little higher too?

I had'nt even notice the doors :lol:

This car is going to be the christmas present for someone that is just going to keep on giving..!
