Question type: Shopping & Pricing

My husband bought our daughter her dream car - 1974 VW Bug -  it runs and has a great
body considering the age, but we know there are lots and lots of repairs needed.  The
inside needs restored.  Looking for a ballpark figure of what it will cost us to restore this
and make this be the dream car she has always wanted.

Bug restoration is an open wallet thing, it just depends on how far you want to go, I've seen some bug jobs start as little as 4 grand and a couple of full blown restorations hit 18 grand. So it is really up to you to decide on your budget and how far want to go.
