I've been thinking long and hard about this but considering moving my Fugitive on as I just don't have the time to restore it... Really hard as I searched long time to find it and know it would be awsome when done!!

Big question is what are they worth these days?

Its a 1.3 with new barrels and pistons when I bought it. On a Q plate so no problems with it being caught up in the whole V5 issue of still being a Beetle. Original seats with the original covers, fiberglass bodywork with the exception of front wings. Needs restoring but did run last time I tried, has a new stinger exhaust but also has a road legal one for MOT's

Obviously currently SORN

Any thoughts on what I could expect for it if I did sell???

If it was on the road, then probably somewhere in the 2.5 - 4K bracket

As it’s a project needing work I’d say 1 - 1.5k

One sold on eBay last week for nearly 600 quid and it was rusty and in bits


It’s hard to say, I’d put it on eBay with a reserve and see what happens

Good luck!

Thats great, Many thanks for the advise.

I think at those prices I could be tempted to sadly let it go.

I think I saw that rusty one and decided if thats all I could get I'd keep it but I think if it was up around the £1500 I'd be tempted!

So hard, searched for years to find this one that wasn't on a Beetle V5, but with work and home life I just haven't had time to even start it other than buy a shiny new Stinger exhaust!! Gutted!! I know this would be such an awsome car when done!

It'll be a very sad day if it goes!!

I agree with the 1-1.5k mark, there are not many but people just want them when they see them!
A friend of a friend wants one so i will point them here...
