Hi,

Need some advise on some Items I am planning to sell and am unsure what price that they will go for.

The first is a 95 percent complete 40 hp VW bug engine, which is a bit rusty, still turns over, this engine has everything except the under tins and exhaust and oil filter, what would this be worth, it came out of I think about 61 to 62 bug I was told when I bought it years ago, this I maybe wrong, will find some pictures.


The second Item is a pair of genuine Albert Swan neck mirrors, reasonable condition, one has a cracked mirror.

Any advice on pricing on these.

John

58 Bug
67 Bug

Hi John,

I’d be thinking £350-500 on the engine. They’re certainly on the up of late. Not sure on the mirrors, hopefully someone can help on the value of those later.

Cheers,
Andy

Smull is on the money re the motor, depending if the tinware is decent.

Swan necks can fetch a lot of money, best to check ads on thesamba for a guide price.

I agree with Smull’s engine estimate. For the mirrors, I think about £100~£150.
