    Hey Sasha, welcome....

    I am always reluctant to give an opinion on price, as I have seen many great kombis go for a fraction of their value, and many dud ones end up in a bidding war and sell for high prices... It depends not only on engine, mechanicals, body (esp rust), year and accessories but also demand, buyer whim, location, luck.... it is especially hard to guess a value with little info, and only a small pic...

    Assuming your camper is in good (but unrestored) condition, you could expect to sell it for anywhere from $1500 to $8000 ... maybe more, maybe less.... the best way to sell it if uncertain would be to list it on an auction site, with a starting bid (or reserve price) that is the *minimum* you would be satisfied with... but the bidders there will also likely request more info and pix...

    Good luck!

    Oh thanks for that, it took me forever to add that photo! I will definitely take more inside and out though and find out all about the specifics of the combi.....

    You can insert higher-resolution images into your posts by opening a free account at photobucket.com ... you can then upload your pix there, and then copy the "[IMG]" tags from under the pix and paste into your post...

    You the man Woz.

    A couple of other things to be aware of is that the phrase "It is only worth what someone is willing to pay"applies and Kombi's seem to pick their owners or new owners so you never know how quick or long the sale may take.

    eBay is the most popular... I wouldn't necessarily say it is good, though...
