For Sale: 1978 Super Beetle EV Project - $2600 obo

Hi Everyone,

I'm in San Jose, California and I'm selling my ev project car. It's a 1978 VW Super Beetle Convertible that I bought in the summer of 2008.

The Good:
Body is in great shape.
New floor pans
All new seals and rubber throughout
New transmission mounts
New paint (Silver Pine Mica - think soft silver/green Prius)
Disc break upgrade (needs wheel spacers to fit stock wheels)
Always garaged since I bought it

The Bad:
Registered Non-Op
The headliner is torn on the edges, and the convt top has a small tear
No Engine or Gas Tank

The Extras:
Front bug bra
Cover for covert top

I'd really like to finish the project because I put a lot of time into the body work and getting it to look so nice, but with baby 2 on the way the EV Bug just wont fit the family anymore.

The car is in great shape all you need is to add the EV parts, so if you're looking for a VW project car this is a good place to start.

I paid $1200 for the car and $1200 for the paint. Add in the body work, new seals, brake upgrades, floor pan replacement, etc. I've got about $5k into the car total but I know I can't get that back, so I'd like to get $2600 for it but I'll take offers.

Attached are some pics from a few weeks ago (I have all the interior parts installed now, also have the chrome bumpers they just aren't installed yet).
