Chassis. VX1BF2518LK446668. Yellow and gray with gray top over gray cloth with red piping. 1301/61hp, 4-speed manual, glass rear window.

Evaluation: Not much history represented, but a rare late Yugo with soft top and showing just 371 miles which is probably accurate, judging by how clean this car is. The engine bay is original but hardly run. The paint looks fantastic other than a scrape and some cracks on the right rear. The top is in great shape other than some stains that might come out with serious cleaning. The interior looks close to showroom fresh.

Bottom Line: If ever there was a car in which to confidently (but slowly) roll into Radwood or Concours d’Lemons, this is it. The later Yugos were screwed together a little better, but these Eastern European rolling punchlines are only known for falling apart and people will be shocked to see one as nice as this. Most don’t even know there was a cabriolet version. Is this a lot of car for the money? No. Is it fun to drive? Probably not. Is it a good investment? Also no. It last sold in Scottsdale eight years and 20 miles ago for $11,000, and accounting for inflation this price in 2021 is actually lower. But the attention it will get and the conversations it will start can’t be topped by any other $12,100 we can think of.

    I was looking to get intouch of the owner of this vehicle to potentially ask him if he is will to resell at some point.

    Is there a way i can get his contact information or can you let you know my contact details and if he is interested to reach out to me.

    Please and thank you
