Tbf it was advertised at £7500 to no interest over summer on other sites :) unfortunately money for a deposit was required by the other half, the car developed some handling issues relating to the front beam that I knew I wouldn't get around to fixing, the buyer was made aware of this and parts were supplied so I can only assume he has rectified this, hence the price increase.
Exactly that - I bought the car for what the seller was asking and paid him with no quarms - not a lowball offer or anything.
Simple paid no nonsense sale which is becoming more and more difficult in a world of messers / Tyre-kickers and ebay warriors

This is my second Fastback and its a beauty. Ive ownved various VW and still have a body off Karman Ghia.

I feel the cat is worth 7k as suggested and as someone else mentioned you can always go down not up

I don't disagree with the 7K value on this car. I don't know if its still in there but the mention of a body off resto in the advert is what set a few folk off. Did you have the body off the car in the short time between getting the keys and advertising?

Why did you advertise so quickly? just to make a fast buck? I have no issue with this, Ive bought a number of cars which I improved upon and then sold for a profit to fund other project. Just curious why you got such a well sorted car for a decent price and don't want to hang on to it :)

I'm on the lookout for similar and had seen this one on ebay before finding it on here... would love it but not at that sort of markup!

I suspect TJ might consider a low offer!
Last I heard was that it's been outside through all the weather & the interior got wet

I agree its a lovely example. My Second Fastback.
I have recently bought 2 oddities - A 1949 Larmar microcar and a 1970 Fiat Gamine Vignale - Need the funds to finish both cars and 7K is the price for the fastback or as you say i'll simply continue to own and enjoy it 8)

Unfortunately my circumstances have now changed, whilst on the lookout for a type 3 I needed a daily, so plumped for a mint 80s golf gti which means my budget isn't what it originally was.

If you want to get what you put into it back out, 5500 I can stretch to that, but no more at this stage I'm afraid.

Thanks
