Hi folks

This is my first post for years, and it's a sad one. Selling my '72 Texas Yellow Type 3 Fastback. It's on Ebay (Item No. 113149578609 - Classic Cars - Volkswagen) and obviously I'd like to see it go to a good VW home.  As the ad indicates, you'll need to be good with a welder, but it's all perfectly do-able.

All the details are there. If anyone wants to chat or view, contact me on here or just give me a phone - 07905 636904.

I'm in Carmunnock on the south side of Glasgow.

Thanks

Simon

Hi Simon,

what reserve do you have on the auction? 

I have too many cars already, including a Fastback in the queue for rebuild, and i'll be abroad when the auction ends but i'm always tempted when i see something classic come up locally...

Good luck with the sale and i hope, like you, that it goes to a great home.

Kev.

Hi Kev. Reserve at £1000. Really just want to see what people might offer. Might let it go for less. There is a lot of rust in the rear inner arches and around the bottom of the inner rear wings. Bottom of A-pillars around the footwell heating vents aren't good either. It needs someone handy with the welder and able to form some complicated patches. Someone like you! Thanks for your interest. Any change of heart, just let me know.

That seems a fair reserve Simon and it looks like you are getting some decent interest so i don't think there will be a problem selling it. Sounds like it needs all the usual work done but if a buyer knows what they are doing with a Fasty then they should know what they are getting themselves into.

Perversely, i'm kinda glad i won't be here for the end of the auction as i'd probably end up buying it. My wife is already egging me on to do just that!! (I know, she's a keeper...Smile)
