    Thread: 1987 Cabriolet 32k. original miles, Always Garaged

    1. 02-15-2009 09:15 AM #1
      87 Cabriolet
      Mint Condition
      32k. original miles
      Red
      Automatic
      Showroom Quality
      History:
      The car belonged to an older man who only drove it in nice weather and thoroughly cleaned after every ride, garaged all other times. All service done at VW dealerships, no aftermarket parts- original condition.
      Present:
      I acquired the car a little over a year ago with the intention of using it on occasion, bringing it to shows, etc. -never worked out, the car sits garaged in Connecticut. My days of playing with cars are over- I have a family and I'm just too busy. I would love to see this car go to a good home, it deserves an owner that will preserve it's condition.
      Sale/ Trade:
      I'll sell the car outright but I'm also willing to consider trades for the following cars: (family cars ) Honda CRV, Honda Element, Subaru wagons, Audi wagons, TDI Jetta wagon... feel free to suggest others. Sadly all trades considered would have to be automatic (my wife hates stick).
      Thanks

      It's hard for me to know exactly what these things cost me. I'm guessing a LOT, but I like them, so that's that.

      not that i agree with the price, but if you base on that idea you are looking at the wrong car to buy. What year are we in? if, the car is show quality ( it does have only 32k) the price will be more than new. Its a rare old item (due to millage and condition) ...demands goes up.

      so what your telling me is that a mass produced car becomes a collector car bc it has 30k miles and is 22 years old give me a break.

      never said collector, you did. But i guess you are the type of person that would try to pay KBB value on this car and it wont work. Yes, any car that is in excellent condition and is 22 years old will become more expensive than originally was. Cars that are no longer produced and are perfectly maintain will stop depreciating in value and either levels off or begins to appreciate over time due to their uniqueness. (yes, even on a mass produced car... how many 1987 cabrios with 30k miles and in perfect condition can you find? ) Anyhow, good luck with the sale.

      You contradicted yourself. If specific, mass produced, non-collectable, cars stop depreciating, they can't be more "expensive than originally" were. They would have to appreciate in value to be more expensive.
      This car looks great. Even with 32K the engine looks mint. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      IMO...if you're looking to build a cab, the cost of getting 1 to this condition would be far more. IMO...$5 - $6.5K is a good resale value for a cab of this year and in this condition, anything more than that and the value diminishes.

      Jesus Chr*$+!!!!! Give her a freakin' break. I swear there are times when I'm absolutely convinced there's nothing but a bunch of imature idiots on here. This car, brand-new in the mid-80s would've cost somewhere around $11k. I know, because that's what they told me when I called the VW dealership in 1987 in between popping pimples and saving pennies from my pitiful paper route. Now, if you aren't aware, you shouldn't even be on the vortex. It's volkswagen enthusiast 101... The VW Cabrio, is soon to be classified a collector's car -especially one in this condition. Now, I'd say that $6,500 for this low-mile-age beauty is a very reasonable price, if not a steal!!! If you want a cheap mass-produced car, then try visiting the Geo Metro or Scion forum

      Actually the MSRP of a Cabby in 1987 was around $15K. The MSRP of my 83GTi when i bought it new was right around $9K. The asking price is not unreasonable.

      You are correct. (but i did base my comment on his argument of paying more than the car originally was. ) Thanks for the correction thou

      GOOD LUCK with the sale.

      its not VW owners they hate its the eliteist mindset they hate...not to mention most vortexers are idiots.
      this car is in awesome shape and i am a cabby lover to the end, but i couldnt justify spending this much on an automatic.
      5 speed i would consider it, but auto = devil.

      You elitist manual tranny snob...... Auto's Rock. I think it is a nice car, the fact that a dealer would want twice the price,,,, It is an average price for that condition....

    25. 03-08-2009 09:37 AM #23
      Man, I wish this was a 5 speed. It would have been sold if it weren't for the automatic.

      i think the price is fair, when i saw the bitching i thought the price would be like 10 grand, but 6500 is very fair

      Price is what the seller wants, you don't like it, look elsewhere then.
