WTT: 1972 VW Beetle for C14
« on: July 19, 2018, 06:15:14 am »
SOLD

I'm selling some things to raise some cash to buy a Connie, and my beloved Beetle is up for sale. On the small chance that someone has a C14 and would like to trade it for a 1972 VW Beetle, I thought I'd post it here. Let me know if you're serious and I'll give the details. I'm really looking for a 2010-2012 C14, and would like to get around 5k for this to give you an idea.

Someone will likely bite. That thing looks clean.
2010 Connie. No ABS, no TC, no linked brakes. A real bike.

Amazing. I remember the day my dad  brought home  a 1969 Beetle.   $1,900  out the door.

yeah, it was about the same in '72-'73, they couldn't give them away...
a "loaded de-lux Super Beetle" $2200 o.t.d., about the same price as a Vega...with a 4 spd, and airconditioning... and if you popped the big $$ you could get a Cosworth Vega for $3000..
asking for a trade on a '10-'12 C14, today, is kind of humorous, and provokes one to laugh, and ask.... how many miles on the Bug... as for picture, the Bug doesn't have a lot of 'shiny' surfaces ......

Is the photo Great Lakes or salt water?

According to the CPI Inflation Calculator, $1,900 in 1969 equates to $13,010 in 2018...

You have no interest in this, so why do you always have to belittle people? No reason for your negative comment.

Except that you're just an ass!

look who's calling the kettle.... an ass.

so what exactly was the purpose behind YOUR post?
are you interested in trading your '09 with 200k (omg, you are a god above us mere  plebes in the bike riding world) for his bug? Like he would want it?

bite me,

frankly I was interested, not in a trade, but to find out more...
that's why I asked how many miles on it.... jerk
which still had no answer, by the way.

ever think someone may be interested in simply buying it? Like, if they knew a bit more, and wanted it, but didn't want to trade their bike for it?


go play in the cat's litterbox.
thanks for your opinions also.


oh, and popping in over here, to make smartazzed comments to me, that would get you a 'time out' or verbal reprimand on the other site, isn't too smart.
I don't care if you despise me or just have to poke the bear, take it somewhere else..
Take it for what it's worth.  mmmmkayyyyyy


to the O/p
sorry for the rudeness caused by the above person,
I am still asking the miles on the bug, feel free to p/m me if you prefer to do it on the side. Thanks

A guy from Indy came up and drove it and said he wanted it. His first car was one the same color. He's picking it up on Monday.

Then it's Connie shopping time!

congrats, to both of you,
still curious about the actual miles on it, I know he's buying now, but when I asked I got no response.

best of luck on the new bike tho,

Actual miles are unknown. The odometer says 96,292 but is that just 96k, or 196k? I replaced the engine around 10 years ago with a used one out of a dune buggy. I've put about 10,000 miles on it since then, but I really don't know how many it had before that. It's a strong runner though, and it has never stranded me or given me any problems. The carb is dialed in perfectly.

I'm going to miss it a bit, it was my first VW, got it in 1999. But I could use the room and since I got my Karmann Ghia (with only 61,000 miles on it!) I just don't drive it anymore. Plus I want a C14, haha.
