If you are like most classic car enthusiasts, you hope one day you’ll stumble upon either a rare muscle car of vintage Porsche tucked away in a cluttered garage with the owner offering it for an I-can’t-walk-away-from-this-deal price. Given the sheer number of cars produced, it’s more likely your find will be a more ubiquitous example such as this 1969 Volkswagen Beetle originally offered in November 2020 on Craigslist in New Brunswick, New Jersey with an array of restoration parts for a firm asking price of $3,000. Making this example more intriguing is the seller’s claim this car is a one-owner. We’re not sure from the description whether the seller is the original owner or they bought the car from him one decade ago. The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the asking price falls between this guide’s current #4 “Fair” estimate of $2,350 and the #3 “Good” appraisal of $4,850.
Here’s the seller’s description:
