THIS IS A REAL ACAPULCO THING!!!!
Everything I have read says they made less than 400 in this color scheme, who knows how many are left. I'm betting on less than 150!
Has correct hardware for running boards, blue paint on the back side of the dash pods as interior is original paint! Have front brackets for the Surry top, sadly no Surry top(but still looking)
Car still has original beam with brackets, still stock ride hight has not been lowered!
June of 1974 Acapulco thing. $11,500
Ex California car brought to upstate New York in the mid 90's.
NO signs of accident damage.
Turned 54,000 miles in june 2017 on original AM engine, and now mileage is at 55,500 Oct 2020. Has been driven less than 500 miles this year.
Original pans (no signs of being replaced)
Original vw hard top with posts and Vw of America sticker with serial number NOT aftermarket Fiber-jet or some other make.
Front seats are out and need to be recovered, but will be in it when it is sold.
So I have had a few asking the same question so I will try to make it easier, every hard top I have seen for sale they are asking between $500-$750. So being that I am already cheaper on my price than I should be if you don't want the hard top I will take $750 off of my price and drop it to $10,750 if you don't want the aftermarket front seats I will take $250 off.
Swapped out the points for electronic.
NO holes! small small amount of surface rust.
OFFERS WILL NOT BE TAKEN OVER THE PHONE OR IN EMAIL!!!
Will not pay shipper on your behalf
If not interested in the hard top I will adjust the price accordingly, But will not sell the hard top first!
Car has all 5 thing thing only wheels, 4 of the wheels have been glass bead blasted and powder coated black then painted faces silver like they came from factory with. Brand new 205/70R14 Toyo Extensa a/s tires. 5th wheel is original spare with what looks like the original tire.
This car is a strong 10 footer very good driver quality! Get questions wherever you go, most people don't know what a thing is.
All this car really needs is paint, new seat covers, correct color soft top, and you will still be in it far under the value($30,000-$40,000high side)
NO PAYPAL, CASH ONLY PLEASE.
If there is anything that you would like to see I can take a photo of anything on the car and send it by email.
