Is this VW Super Beetle worth restoring? in Our Cars & Restoration Projects Posted May 3, 2018 Yeah that’s kinda what I was thinking I didn’t want it to be too much work for so little car, I’m glad I posted before I made a decision thanks for replying! 9 minutes ago, 72caddy said: Pass on this. VWs used a body pan and this one needs replacing. Patching won't be that safe. The door bottoms should be checked as I suspect they are shot. The roof will never be the same since the metal has stretched. Sorry to be a wet blanket but this is a real challenge. For $2500 - $4000 for a better car may seem like a lot but you would be way more into this one in parts and time very quickly.
