Well I've just had my first experience with the Samba I put my 62 bus up for sale. My price I thought was real fare for everything it has done to it. I put it up for 30,000 obo the offers I got were basically not cool. As soon as they read 2276 with pro st 388 trans. They seem to think it won't be dependable. So this weekend I'm swapping my stock 1600 dp with stock trans from my SC so the bus will be 1600 w/ stock trans. The new price will reflect the change 23,000. Now I think that's a very good price for a very clean 62 bus that's rust free with straight axles and a narrowed adjustable beam.

Bring it to Cali buds, $30k for that bus as it sits is reasonable and should sell all day long! I wouldn't change a thing on it.....

Everyone's looking for a deal, you're in the drivers seat, don't sell it short
What do you do with 365 used rubbers? Make a tire and call it a Good Year.

How long did you have it listed for?
Don't you change your mind on selling stuff more frequently than you change your undies?
I'd let the price stand at 30k with the 1600cc in it. It'll sell.

Is it just me or are bus prices coming down somewhat in general?

That is too funny. Well it's a good deal on what looks to be a nice bus. In my limited searching, it seems to me prices are coming down a tad what do you guys think?

Yeah, feels like split buses prices have calmed down. Single cabs seem to have gone up though (felt like they were entry level to get into a splitty. Not so much any more). Double cabs seem like they're worth more than ever. And bays keep inching upwards. Probably thanks to the Brit mates.
...but that's just me.
