Last Call – Keeping it Cl(ass)y in Sundbyberg Sweden


It looks like we are developing quite a following around the world, and as proof, we received this tip from Frederic (Thanks Man!) from Sweden. It’s a great followup to our own Longroofian’s post about the VW Winterjam, and it is a local listing for a 1971 Volkswagen 1302 Beetle Sedan. According to the translated ad:

The car runs perfect, has only 7000 mil, new tires and new battery. model year 1971. Answer only by phone, ask for Marianne. For sale to the highest bidder. 

If I read the ad correctly, the selling price for this VW will be between $1,000 and $1,200 (7,000 – 7,500 SEK). So what do you think this cl(ass)y VW should go for? See the listing here.

    If Google Chrome is translating the Swedish correctly, the 7,000-7,500 number refers to the mileage range. The translated ad has no price – it's for sale to the highest bidder. The car would be an utter steal at $1,200, but I doubt it'll go for that low. Also, the usual caveats about drastically-underdriven cars will apply here.

      Also, if those are Swedish miles, then it's 70,000 km.

    Whoever put the racing stripe on it wasn't in possession of much attention to detail.

    Not as funny in Swedish. But for all of you how about a refreshing beer from Norges eldste bryggeri:

    Ass jokes aside, this Bug looks to be in pretty good shape, especially when you consider that it lives in a place with weather like Upstate New York. Unmolested Beetles are hard to find these days, I'd expect this to bring anywhere from two to three grand, maybe more.
    You know, it's ironic that old VW Bugs are such good cars in the snow, while their heaters and defrosters suck so bad that you'd be insane (or a brass monkey) to drive one anywhere that you'd need that kind of traction during the winter. Or, pretty good at steering, shifting, and using an ice scraper to see, all at the same time.

      Your first paragraph made me think of Antique Roadshow just now, I think I need coffee…

        I don't think they ever say "grand" on that show.

      They also rust so very quickly.
