Classic VW BuGs ’55 Beetle Ragtop Road Trip Garage Find Resto Project Series

Added August 8, 2013 by Chris Vallone

This is a multi part video series on a 1955 VW Beetle Ragtop Project Garage Find that we took to the road to Rhode Island to inspect and buy!  It is moments like these that make this job so great, I love my job.

Awesome series!

I'm suprised you don't have a trailer, that tow bar looks a little scary and I would be afraid of a tire or bearing failure pulling an old relic. Glad you made it home in one piece.

Five grand seems fair for all that you're getting, plus the extras. How much would you think you will clear after you do your magic?

@1960vw well once the car is all done, she will be worth 35-45k.  She should be done by next Spring
