Rough guess, 2-4 weeks. If I was doing it, it would still be in the corner a dozen years later.

It was disassembled 5+ years ago. It's scattered all over a stone barn, about 50 miles from here. What would it be worth, in round numbers? Anyone want to hazard a guess? The engine is complete, not disassembled and "solid" so says the owner.

It's a "new" beetle, so it's structurally sounder than the "Old" ones, however, it's worth depends on the condition of the floor pans and the central chassis member. I goo person will take the rest of it apart before trying to put it back together. With hydraulics, fluids, rubber mounts brakes and tired you're looking at a good solid month of work. Everyone thinks an old car is a classic. This is not. It's worth about $1000 if the person's realistic. For get about the "I can get $2K for the motor" There are MILLIONS of them out there. You've got about 3-4K of work to get it back on the road. to have a car that's worth about $3-4K. Cheers, Zaphod
