Hi,

I use to check in here from time to time and look around at all cool projects and so, but now when I found this old "junk" ( Wink ) I thought it's time to register and maybe get some help or so! Very Happy

Anyway, yesterday I met an old man who used to work at the local VW-shop. After a little chat he said something like "I have some VW parts at home..."
After that he had me on the hook Rolling Eyes

To skip som unnessesary BS, when we got there, he started pulling out som "new" NOS-parts (and I became like this -> Shocked )...
1 brand "new" decklid
3 brand "new" rear valance (marked "March -55")
1 brand "new" front bumper

So I thought, maybe you guys could help me value those parts? Very Happy

Sorry for my english, I'm swede Wink

Just my opinion, but here's what I would think;

If they truly are NOS and don't have too much surface rust....

1 brand "new" decklid - for '53-'55 I've seen changing hands for around $1000, if it is a '50-'52 probably $1300-1500

3 brand "new" rear valance (marked "March -55") -$500, just a guess. As long as they are not single cab ones, as those are identical to a '55-'59 crankstart bus apron

1 brand "new" front bumper- If it's a true long rib, with T nuts welded in for the Lic. plate, I'd say $800-1000.

My personal opinion is to take all of the estimates from Concept1 and use the high estimates but also add US $100-$200.

Sounds good. There are people in need of real Barndoor front doors, it would be nice to get those to people doing restorations.

Yeah. Like me.

But no matter what I say for a price, you'll just say that they are worth $100-$200 more... Laughing

I don't know a price on NOS doors so I won't d-block you. Smile

Another thing to consider is that you are in Sweden and I'm guessing most of the people that want these heavy parts are not close by so the price may be a bit lower due to the high shipping costs of large & heavy packages.

I do understand that there's lots of people wanting parts for their buses, think my inbox went from empty to "full" in about one day Laughing

There's a guy here in Sweden that work on a '50, he's also very interested in buying some parts from me. I'm totally "green" to selling "overseas" and so, I usually get stuff picked up Rolling Eyes

I'm goin' to this old man tomorrow to collect my parts, so I should be able to have some pictures up this weekend!
At least I'll try to have a picture up tomorrow on the decklid Very Happy

I'm surprised noone's mentioned there's still a 60/40 chance these parts are from a mid sixties split.

You're absolutely right!
The things I'm 100% sure on are:

-rear valance
-decklid
-bumper
-short side panel
-cabin seperation panel

The thing is, I only looked at the parts for a short period of time. Tomorrow I'll picking the parts up!

Anyway, if all the other parts turned out to be newer than BD, I don't care.
How often do you find new NOS-parts? Not often back here anyway! Laughing

Just to clarify, I wasn't trying to put you down with my comment. Normally I would have put the odds at 90/10, but you seem to know more than the average new guy.
