That vert used to belong to Terry Shuler. He said it was a '52 and called it a daily driver. I have an old Motorweek show from the 80's or 90's on tape that shows him with this car. It looks pretty much the same but has lost the later euro bumpers and guards and got a correct steering wheel. It has a bunch of incorrect parts on it but is still a significant find. The stash itself is pretty amazing.

sad to see that it had been neglected and stashed away.

I seriously doubt this was a random find at all...

Whoever purchased this lot was in the privy & knew exactly what they were after...

That said, it's nice score regardless & the time trade-off of following & knowing what was to be had at the right time, took some persistence & patience... my hat is off!

$5 sez, ...I'm guessing less-than $50k for the known lot... and within 30 days more then 2 cars grace our classifieds ... Any takers?

: )

I'm not taking your bet....but are you saying $50k for the lot? that's too low, remember there's the baja to consider. :lol:

Nice find.

I was waiting to hear the "finder" owned the storage lot and got it all because the person stopped paying the monthly fees.

This has happened before with a couple other VW stashes.

i'd snag the 63 bus if available.

This car is a 52. I bought it from Terry Shuler. Nice car but had horrible mothball smell. Later traded it to Paul ? From Texas for a 50 vert that I still have. Was a good driving car and feel someone got a good car.

Recall the name now. Paul Evans. Hope the dry Utah storage got rid of the mothball smell. Dick

I think the bus is worth more than that 356 by itself.

What a sick find! And what a way for them to be stored and not outside in the climates eating them away! Always happy to see more splits being found!

here's Terry again, in 1980-ish, with somma' his early cars -

I made an offer on the 52 a month ago but the "seller" disappeared. Weird.
Anybody have any idea what's going on with this ?

Lanny Hussey Mon Jan 13, 2020 5:03 pm

BUMP

Is this the Vert from the storage unit just posted up for sale ?
