I need to find a new home for all the parts I've accumulated for late 1950s-early 1970s Bug, Bus, Ghia, Fastback, and Squareback. My first car was an almost like new red 1964 Bug that I purchased in 1966 for $650. Since then I've owned 23 window Buses, split window and bay Buses, single and double cab pickups, Bugs, Karmann Ghias, Fastbacks, and Squarebacks. All the vehicles have already been sold, and I only have used and some new parts left. I have too many parts to list them all.
$1250 for everything, and it could all be yours.
Come and check out what I have, and this will be the first time everything will be available. Make a reasonable offer for everything, and it could all be yours. Only one guy has been here to look at anything before.
I want to find someone to buy it all, and not pick through the parts to just purchase a few things.
Some of the VW parts I have:
-1958 Bug 36hp engine with extra heater boxes and other parts -needs rebuild
-1969 Bus 1600cc engine with crossmember still attached -has been sitting for about 20 years, needs distributor, tin is rusty, and probably needs the top end rebuilt because of sitting for so long
-1960 Bus 40hp engine -needs rebuild
-1960 Bus complete front axle beam assembly -drum-to-drum
-1968 Bus complete front axle beam assembly -drum-to-drum

I'm going to be putting my house up for sale soon, and this is the only posting that indicates my intention to do it. This will be a great fixer-upper for the right ones who want to get out of the city, away from the typical neighborhood situation, and have privacy. I can cut firewood with a chainsaw at anytime, day or night, and there's nobody to complain about it. It will be sold AS-IS; but I'm willing to stay awhile to help, and stay in the 26' Fleetwood Wilderness travel trailer/guest quarters that's included. This is a perfect opportunity to fix things the way you want it, and I'm doing some work on it now; but it needs a lot of work/repairs that I've neglected over the years.
It's located in northern Mendocino county on Hwy. 1, in the coastal mountains that's 33 miles north of Fort Bragg, and 10 miles west of Leggett/Hwy. 101. It's a place known as Hale's Grove, at an 1160' elevation, on 7 acres among the redwoods, with a well that's never run out of water, and a seasonal creek. The biggest redwood on the property is almost 4 ft. in diameter. The house is in the valley next to Hwy. 1, and the property extends to the top of a north facing hill. There used to be a small cabin at the top of the hill that had an ocean view; but it collapsed many years ago. This area doesn't get all the fog like Fort Bragg does, and the cooler climate here has been ideal for me. This is a very sparsely populated area where property is hardly ever available for sale. I'm 73 years old, single, and have enjoyed living here since 1982.
The house is a 30' x 40' 2-story with a solid perimeter foundation of 8"x8"x16" concrete blocks, and electricity and lighting under the house. 35-year Elk asphalt shingles were installed in 2002; with the pitch of the roof being about 40 degrees. Five 2'x4' opening skylights, two skylight tubes, and an 8'x10' dormer were done at that time too. There are 3 Milgard sliding glass doors, and all but 5 windows have been replaced with Milgard "Styleline" white vinyl....all dual glazed. The kitchen has solid oak cabinetry. Another unfinished project is an 8'x24' addition to the street side of the house; with 3/4" gas line and hot/cold water stubbed out, and plumbing under the floor for a future bathroom, laundry room, furnace, etc. The general building contractor that was doing the work with me, got sick while doing this addition, and that was the last day he did any work here. There's also a 19'x30' garage/shop with a carport. Hopefully you can realize this property's potential, and that the land and location might be worth the most.
If you don't have experience in construction, or enough money to pay for the unfinished projects and repairs; then this property is not for you. A realtor/friend from Ft. Bragg inspected the property in 2/2023 and wants to list it at a starting price of $350K AS-IS, as soon as I'm ready, and he doesn't think it will take long to sell. The property isn't be ready to show yet, and no pictures have been takentaken. I'm hoping to replace the 10'x25' deck in the meantime; which is where the front door is. Another deck will need to be built on the west side of the house that has an 8' sliding glass door in the living room, and a 5' sliding glass door in the master bedroom. Not sure how much I can get done; due to the cost, and not having anyone to help me.
Buy the property and all the VW parts can be included; along with the Yamaha 6000 watt generator, a 2000 Honda Rancher 350cc 4x4 quad and its small ATV tilting trailer, 1985 Honda VT700 motorcycle, 1978 Peugeot 103 moped, an 18' stern drive boat that's shown in another posting, and about anything else that's on the property too.

There's no phone service available where I live, and texting doesn't work here either. If I had a newer cell phone than my 2015 Samsung S5; it would have VOIP capability and could connect to my HughesNet Gen 5 modem/router to provide phone service here.
