Now wait a minute.. I know Mex production ended, but isn't the Beetle still produced in Brazil. Regardless of the 50 anniversery thing, wouldn't importing a brand new one be cheaper than $75,000 without all that pesky dry rot?Herbie3Rivers said:Don't sell yourselves short on this one. This is actually a very unique beetle. 1986 was the 50th anniversary of the Beetle. And with this car being the special edition model, and having 14 kms on it make this a real keeper. This isn't a Mexican built beetle, but a much more unique Brazilian built one which has a ton of little differences from a Mexi Beetle. $75K is way high on the value side, and if it were $10K, I'd take 3. I'd say this one is worth at least $20k or a little more. Back in 1997 I purchased a 77 sedan (last year in US) from the widow of a Oklahoma dealer for $8k. The car was BRAND NEW and I was the first registered owner of the car. It had a whopping 154 miles on the odometer when I got it, and about 180 when I sold it for $12k to a VW dealer in Ohio. I also know of, and have seen a 77 Beetle with a grand total of 4 miles on the odometer, that has never even been dealer prepped that sits in a guys garage exactly as it came off the boat from Wolfsburg.
