Structually in very good condition, body work could do with some TLC but is perfect for that rat look.

Very easy restoration project.

My guess is that £1200 is underpriced - a lot depends on condition of the chassis.

At this age the vehicle will likely be bought by someone KNOWING they will need to do repairs and to give TLC

When I sold my VW (30 year old and 250,000 miles on the clock albeit on the third engine) I sold it for what I had paid for it in 1972. The buyers ran it for some 6 more years but did not administer enough TLC and the rust worm eventually caught up with it

My advice would be to book a sales pitch at a VW rally eg there will be one at Tatton Park in August (http://www.volkswest.co.uk/shows.html). It costs £10 for a space in the sales field and you will get lots of VW oriented folk coming to look. That was how I sold mine.

Pics showing the underside are bound to help - but if you do go to a VWfest meet you can expect folk to crawl underneath the vehicle anyway. Bearing in mind you would be parked in a field it would be prudent to have a length of old carpet or the like to make life more pleasant for anyone making a "below" inspection. Little things like that can help a lot

Also useful is to have the log book and receipts for servicing or other work done. I am a fussy old git and over 30 years I had kept EVERY such receipt (honest).

What happened with mine was that a couple of guys (brothers) came to inspect the vehicle 3 times during the day at Tatton park - and then said they were serious and asked of they could come to my house (from Yorkshire) in a couple of days for a test drive. There is no real facility to test drive on most VWfest sites so that was sensible. They came, I drove, they drove, they agreed to buy. I suggested that they FIRST go sort out insurance because getting insurance on a 30 year old vehicle is not easy - and provide the payment as a bankers draft (effectively cash). They phoned a couple of days later with all sorted.
