FS: 1974 VW SMB Automatic

Hi;

Somewhere around here is a posting talking about a 74 VW Sporty that someone just found in great shape from the original owner in Michigan.

I can't find it or I would post this with it.

"Paypal is welcome and I will consider reasonable offers."

As in, how much will you pay me to take it out of your driveway?

Rare does not imply desirable.

That thing gives new meaning to the term 'Rough'.

ZENITH SYSTEM 3 TV - $350 (Franktown)

Reply to: qc4dt-2856068664@sale.craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]
For Sale: ZENITH SYSTEM 3 27" TV.

I bought this new in 1980, with the push button channels and individual channel fine tuning it was state of the art then.

Works great, collectors item. $350.00 firm.

Serious inquires only, I will not return spam emails asking if still for sale. Just email me your phone number and I will call you.

Re: FS: 1974 VW SMB Automatic

Somewhere on all them pushbutton channels you can get a striped primary color pattern, sorta like a rainbow. It'd go nicely with the unicorn rag under the TV... yeah, I know, those stripe patterns are vertical, but it'd look correct if you are laying on the floor by the bong

Re: FS: 1974 VW SMB Automatic

Golly, I know I have an eight-track stereo lying around somewhere among the junk in my garage. I didn't know it might be worth hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Perhaps I ought to put my old wide neckties for sale on ebay. There could be a gold mine in my closet.

P.S.: "This is a rare automatic transmission and the motor turns by hand." What is a motor that turns by hand?

I think a "motor that turns by hand" means the van "will not start/does not run?

Re: FS: 1974 VW SMB Automatic

I probably means the battery is long dead. And to turn the engine over, you must do it by hand. Which is actually a good sign. It means the engine is not frozen.

Sometimes, when an engine sits (especially outside), moisture gets in and rusts the rings to the cylinders, resulting in a 'frozen' engine -i.e. won't turn over by hand.
