I have a 1998 VW Beetle. Just got water pump, timing belt, serpitine belt all
replaced. It has new tires as well. However, we just found out the motor seized
and we have to replace transmission. Im a single mom and now I have to sell the
car...How much do you think I can get?

In fair condition with a working motor and tranny its about $1,500.00, no engine and no tranny and if the body is in good condition, I would say no more then $700.00

scrap value- maybe 3-4 hundred dollars- sorry, they are just too expensive to fix-
