  1. SOLD Thank you to those who followed along and shared your kindness. I watched her get towed away on a uhaul trailer this morning. A nice young couple from the PDX area picked it up and plan on doing a full resto in their new 6 car garage. I couldn’t be happier. Take care 02 folk. You’re all addicted to a fantastic car. Keep having fun with them. Alex
  2. Thanks! For those watching along I MADE DECISION TO PUT CAR IN MY NAME. No more paperwork headache. As of today I have plates, tabs, and registration in my name. A title will come in 6 to 8 weeks. I’d prefer to sell car now and I mail you signed title. If not, again car will go into storage. Give me a shout if you’re interested Alex
  3. I just left the Lynnwood DMV. They stopped me from dropping the cash to plate and register car since I'm turning around and selling it. I have ALL REQUIRED DOCS (IN WA at least) to transfer ownership of car. They're all notarized. No BS. I've gotten zero interest in the car at $8k so down the price comes. If someone can get me $5k I'll give you the keys, the car, and the docs. If no one wants it at this price, the car is going into storage and I'll sell it later down the line. Car is on CL locally for $5500. Faqers get a discount. Take care, Alex Call or text if you want to talk details 206-226-5640
  4. Driving video from today. Runs and drives as it should. No surprises. I don't see why one couldn't drive this home. Video link https://youtu.be/aqRZmzHE52M
  5. Thanks Mario! I believe it is. Here is a cold start video. I mention the car hasn't started since last video - that was 24hrs previously. The charge light appears, but was easily turned off after exciting the alternator. Car is charging normally. I've also gone back and by ear adjusted timing, idle, and mixture screw. Engine revs easily now, but still has a very slight miss. It needs a very basic tune by a pro. I've driven it around the neighborhood and the memories are flooding back! I will create a new thread once the title is in hand. The car is still for sale without a title if someone is interested. My asks are completely negotiable. If you're interested, please reach out through PM. Send me your # and I'll call you back.
  6. New death certificate is en route. Once we have that we will notarize the two forms needed and I will hit the DMV. Hoping to have the new title en route no later than 6/12 if possible. Video of engine running as promised. I still plan to deliver a cold start and driving video. Once the rain calms down I'll get back out. Video link https://youtu.be/ahScq7G7zC8 This is after one set of cranks to fill the bowls. Engine purrs but notice a slight shake. My guess is point gap/dwell, timing, idle, carb tune will need to be redone, but otherwise it sounds very healthy. No smoke out of the back. No knocks, ticks, or other noises that would cause me to think there is internal issues.
  7. Vad! Send me a PM with your tele number. If you're truly interested we can work together to make something happen.
  8. Thank you, I appreciate that. I understand completely. Best of luck with your search. These are fantastic cars and I hope you find a good one.
  9. I am working on finding the title for mine. When I do, I will let you know. It is currently listed for sale at 8K OBO with title found. There is a thread on current page of classifieds about it. I understand if it's not what you're looking for. Thanks.
  10. Bill from Wrench will be provided. It's currently hovering around $1500. Pedal box is also completely rebuilt with powder coated parts and ireland solid bushings. There is a new clutch master in there is a well.
  11. Thanks for the feedback everyone. When the title is found I will be asking $8k or next best reasonable offer. That being said, no offer will be ignored, lowball or not. Here is the backstory of the car, where we're at now, at what I plan to do with the funds. Backstory: This is my deceased best friend's father's car (this is relevant later) Car purchased by original owner (father) locally in '73 after landing new job Car sold to me by original owner in 2009; owned until 2011; all of my post history on this site is documenting my time with the car then. There is additional posts on VWVortex showing me care for and enjoy the car there as well. I've been a member on VWVortex for almost 12 years now and believe have a reputable standing with the community. Car sold back to original owner's son, who drove it until 2014 Car sat until my friends passing in 2017 I purchased car back from original owner (family) about 6 months later I've owned the car since. It has been in WA state it's whole life. It has been passed between the father, son, and myself. Where We're At: I have been in contact with and mailed the required forms to be signed and returned for new title Once received, I will process the change at the DMV. This will take weeks. Wrench mechanic has come and freed up stuck wheels and has noted engine is cranking Mechanic will return to finish complete brake refresh as needed, and get car running properly again. It ran when parked and I don't have time to diagnose with current workload. The OP lists the tune-up parts done. I'm convinced it won't take much. Video of cold start and running can be provided once work is complete Tires are Federal Super Steels not Sumitomo like noted (sorry). They are now mounted and balanced on OE steel wheels. Wheels and hub caps will be mounted once Wrench is done. The 13" BBS Mahle will be given to the buyer free of charge. What I Plan to Do: After my friend past, another shared friend was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that took his life within 6 months. These two friends lived 1.5 blocks from each other and grew up together. The cancer victim had a young son who is now left without a father. I plan to donate a portion of the funds from sale to the cancer victims son, in my friend's name as a tribute to their friendship and to leave a bit of a nest egg for the boy. We're all in this together and I feel this is the right thing to do with some of the profits. You're welcome to share your opinions on the matter - It's the internet afterall - But I will remain 100% transparent. I've tried to show the car at it's worst, and now I've laid out my intentions with its sale. Low ball all you want. I won't take offense to it, and will be taking the highest offer. I've recieved 6 or 7 offers so far. I'm sure that number will now decrease drastically. Thanks for reading y'all. I understand if this is no longer your cup of tea. Alex
  12. Mike, serious question. What do you think it's worth then? Maybe this was better suited for a discussion forum.
  13. Mario, thank you for keeping it real. Sale is on hold while I work on getting the title.
  14. Please see my post. Thanks. '72 Riviera project with no title.
  15. Car still available. Edit: Wrench mechanic will be here at 9AM PST today. If work required is more than expected, asking price is subject to change. I plan to eat majority of fees, but depending on outcome that could change. Thanks for looking.
