Evaluation: Excellent paint and chrome. Clean, straight body. Fantastic interior. Clean and fully redone underneath. Scratches on the original headlight covers are the only real flaw. Fitted with all the charming period goodies and restored to super high standards for a Beetle, even an early oval window car. It’s the best VW in Indy.
Bottom Line: Beetles make great first classics. They’re simple, plentiful, fun, and they have a huge following. Up until fairly recently they were dirt cheap, too, but that’s changed in a big way over the past few years. And this car is a perfect example of that. Three years and 10 miles ago in Kissimmee, it sold for $42,900. That was a huge result at the time, and a $60,500 final price in 2022 is similarly top of market.
