Hello, I'm new to the forum and would appreciate any input you might be able to offer. I have the opportunity to purchase a1976 Super Beetle convertible. The asking price is $12500 firm. The present owner, who happens to own the shop I bring my cars in for service, completely rebuilt the engine and has done refurbishing of the entire car with the exception of the transmission. The car has 117000 miles on it. I inspected it and found no evidence of rust in the obvious places and the car appears to be in excellent condition. I don't doubt the honesty of the owner obviously, I am simply wondering if $12500 is a reasonable price for a reconditioned car that he calls a "turnkey". I don't mind paying a premium price, but any of the sites I have looked at rarely price a comparable car at that amount. I need to let him know by the end of the week and would really appreciate any direction you might be able to offer based on obviously little information. Also...is there something I should consider as I look at the car again? Thanks in advance.
