Here's the QLD one spotted by Iain.

A total rebuild, but comes with two engines, 1600 & 1800 Bug, two windscreens (there's a grand there a lone!), two chassis, two sets of mags (one 4 stud Ford pattern), and a lot more. If you were looking for a Eureka for a project, this sounds pretty good. And it's a Sport (at least the body is, hard to see the roof properly), and there were less than 100 of them made from memory.

Been relisted again.


Bidding starts at $3,000 but has a buy it now at $3,300. It's still a total project car, but is now ready if it has to be transported interstate. Has no windscreen fitted, but it comes with two new windscreens. Though I'd suggest you contact a local (to the seller) Windscreens O'Brian (or other windscreen specialist) to come pack those windscreens for shipping. Fitted with a running 1600 Bug motor. Also comes with two chassis's. Gear lever has been moved back. Roof is manual with gas struts.

Yeh I almost bought this one, the owner's very genuine and extremely helpful and there's alot of stuff there for the money.  Only reason I didn't get this one was because interstate delivery was going to be difficult but that seems to be addressed now.  If only I had 3k to spare  a big shed to fit it in...  Hopefully it'll find a good home soon that will see the resto through.

In the end I purchased a local car instead that was meant to be almost drivable...  The more I pull it apart the more I can find wrong with it (more work than this car involves!).  I'm sure this is a common story though.

Hope so. Solid basis for a rebuild, especially with all those extra parts.

Certainly is. I bought mine registered and on the road. Wiring loom from hell (mostly household grade wiring, what wasn't was from a computer), dodgy steering (kinda still is!!), stuffed hydrolics...it goes on and on. Don't forget, we're buying other peoples projects thet either they couldn't follow through, lost interest, or came upon a problem they couldn't afford to fix or didn't know how to. Or simply ran out of money. So in essence we 'inherit' other peoples problems.

Looks like this one sold!! Well, the auction ended with only one bid. Actually it looks like it was bought use the 'Buy it Now' button. Do we know who got this one?
