    Hi Everyone,
    I'm interested in buying a beetle and looked over a 1967 1300 deluxe beetle today in NSW but unsure what it's really worth.
    It's hardly been driven and after taking it for a test drive there was evidence of a fuel leak other then that the car looked good needing new tyres and due for rego in 1mths time.
    Cheers

    I think more info is needed to tell you if its worth it, A fuel leak could be quite simple and probably isn't as bad as something like major rust.

    What's the rest of the bug like? What are they asking?

    beetles do seem on the up and up with price.

    BTW, I'm also in the market for a beetle. It's been too long since we've had one. Good luck.

    Like kombi's beetle's do have more valuable models tho, it's the old classic "how long is a piece of string"

    vinny, you know your going to have to post some pics now. that sounds too good.
