Got a replacement for the old 75.
Picked up this 75 for a reasonable price (for Japan)

It has a few extras like the factory a/c etc...

It also has what appears to be early Golf seats retrofited

Sweet! Even though the steering wheel is on the wrong side.  Just out of curiosity what is a fair price in Japan?

All of Our RHD Karmann cabriolets have been imported from Japan..
as they weren't sold in Australia..

it would have a lot of pollution stuff I would presume??
 
How did You come to buy a RHD beetle from Japan??
 
everything I know that comes from japan is very expensive..

It helps that I live in Japan

It has the normal stuff as far as emissions no injection or catalytic converter just the tank fume and charcoal canister stuff.

 I'll try to get an engine pic later

 Speaking of Japan.  Although I have never gone many of the VW Club guys here make the trip to Pamona, California to a huge VW show over there. I remember them telling one of the guys who was taking his 57 Ghia Covertible to besure and take his title.  He didn't understand why, but he did. A couple Japanes gentlemen came up to him with a suitcase full of cash and offered him $20,000.  SOLD.  He's was told this is not unusual and many times the cars end up inside someones home or office as a decoration.  Weird I know, but a true story.
