Default 79 KARMAN CONVERTIBLE

Hi guys my names Robert. I’ve joined because I need a little help I purchased a beetle not knowing exactly what it is and still don’t but wondering if anyone could tell me what it’s worth as I’d rather see it with someone who’d appreciate it.

I can tell you the roof needs fixing first!

Whats its worth is a difficult question, The going rate for later Karman convertible like yours can vary from 5k to 15k depending of course quality, matching chassis and engine numbers, original parts, no rust, has it been welded, is it a UK right hand drive car, the list can go on.

Judging by rear bumper it looks like a US import that's been converted to RHD. A guy I know sold one that was similar recently. Had been restored and converted to RHD, had new enough hood from memory. Was off the road for a few years (as wasn't using). Bottom of the door/doors needed a few repairs and he got 5-6k for it. It was a good solid car.

Default 79 KARMAN CONVERTIBLE 😕

Thanks guys. The car was completely restored a few years back to bare metal, colour change and nut and bolt rebuilt apart from the roof obviously. I’ll post another coupe of photos so you get the idea of the condition.

I'd advertise it at around 8K dude.

Good luck.
