1976 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible, sold 5/9/12 for $12,800: Who doesn’t like a classic Beetle convertible? The later ones like this traded some charm and nicer interiors for fuel injection and a bit more power. This one presented nicely in shiny fresh bright orange with a black interior. The description was thin and there were no photos of the underside, but if everything checked out on what appeared to be a 3+ car, the price paid was spot-on retail.
The new owner may not score when he goes to sell it, but it will likely always be worth what he paid and not cost an arm and a leg to maintain.
