We all are lovers of cars and then we do feel bad when we see one rotting away. I do agree about that. Yes i do agree that a 914 is not so collectable in any other part of the world but then so are the Plymouths and Desotos of the early fifties which command an exotic price here. Personally im with you, I dont like it one bit. (guess im not kinky enough)

Anyway, sincerely, did not wish to offend you in any way.

Actually nobody is a fool or clever. Its just a hobby and different people have various perceptions of it. Some like me and karl like to work on our cars hands on, which i doubt vijay mallya does. I know of someone who sent over his austin 7 from england to LMB racing in belgium for restoration. At a cost of over 50000 pounds it must be the most expensive austin 7 in the world. But its his car and his money. I bought a pair of used german market headlamps for my karmann-ghia on ebay for 100 pounds (incl shipping) because they are unobtainable, and i like them far more than the commonly available us market sealed beam lamps which can be had for as low as 15 dollars. Im sure karl would give an arm and a leg for a radio to fit his oval. ↲ the point is that vw cars generally are not expensive to maintain even if you use nos parts, which are still available at a reasonable price. Like everything else in the world, its a matter of demand and supply as far as specific parts are concerned.

what i also was trying to say is NOS GENUINE VW parts made in GERMANY in the old VW boxes are expensive and I thought you were trying to say that these are available cheap at the so called ""secret sources"" of yours . anyway at last we are all agreeing on one aspect.NOS parts are EXPENSIVE(reasonable being a subjective word )

Oh absolutely, lets agree to disagree.

Regarding the car in the classifieds,

It certainly isn't a 72 model. I wonder if it is an Oval window car looking at the front windscreen (subject to correction). Or even a split!

Happened to stumble upon this car while browsing. Wonder if the papers are in order though, for it says 1956 model, but it is the earlier model with super select grill, bigger headlights etc. However the rear has all the period fittings intact, and as usual a hefty price tag (say so 'cos I for one definitely cannot afford it) .

This car was offered by someone in Delhi sometime back. The car has many very hard to find items in place, especially the interiors. Major deviations are the front grille and headlights. Note the rare original smaller front indicators, correct hard to find side trim and handles, cool repro 'Millecento' plate on dash, petrol cap, numberplate frame etc. Price is high as plenty of expense in car is visible, but it always is like that

Documents are likely to be original as in 56 the 3 slat grille model was definitely available. In (around) October 56 the centre light version was introduced.

Thank you for that insight Karl. What I liked the most was the tail lights in this car. Hmm... The recession is taking its toll on me, else how I wish, I could have added this car and called my spattering of classics, the advent of a Fiat collection.

I think for lakh of rupees (unegotiated) its a good car.Its better than buying a scrappy car for free then spending all the time and money to get her up to the mark. Unless ofcourse its a very very rare car, but then you dont get those for free do you?

Looks like a 62'ish model, 5 lug wheels/ big rear side window makes the car look a combination of more than 2 cars. Bad body lines

And certainly an extra "0" added by mistake in the expected price.
