1981 Volkswagen Other NO RESERVE AUCTION

We are Euclid Car Co. at 1231 E. 286th St., Euclid, OH 44132. We have been in the used car business for over 40 years and we love to sell cars on eBay. The buyer gets a car he or she wants, and the dealer gets a car sold. Don't participate in the auction if you're not 100% sure you can pay for the car when the auction is over. We depend on the sales of these cars for income to our used car lot. eBay considers the winner to be in a binding contract with Euclid Car Co., so any non-paying bidder will be reported to eBay. Please do not call us when the auction is over to tell us:

"My wife won't let me buy the car."
"I hit the button by mistake."
"My son or daughter bought the car on my account and I don't want it."
"The car is too far away, I don't want it."
etc, etc.
We only accept wires, certified checks, and cash. We do not take deposits, Paypal, credit cards (cash or debit), or checks in the mail. We will not deal with a loan from your bank. All cars must be paid for within 3 days of the auction ending, no excuses. Please make sure you have the funds available before you bid on our vehicles. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, and we're sure that all other car dealers feel the same.
If you're the lucky winner of our auction, we will email you immediately to congratulate you and give you our number, 216-990-3880 (Lou). Most of our auctions end between 7 PM and 10 PM. We would like a call from the winner within 12 hours of auction ending so we know that they are a real buyer. If not, we will offer it to the 2nd highest bidder. If the original winner has still not contacted us after 4 days they will be reported to eBay as a non-paying bidder. Thank you again for reading.

This is a no-reserve auction, which means that the last highest bidder when the auction is over will win the car. Every time you bid on the car keep in mind that you have an opportunity to be the owner, so your bid means something.

We encourage all bidders to stop out, personally examine the car and drive it for themselves. If you can’t personally make it out to check out this vehicle, simply find a local mechanic to look at the vehicle and give you a personal report on the condition. Ebay also offers a service like this! Please do this BEFORE bidding on the vehicle!

This is an as-is vehicle, which means that once you buy it, you own it with all faults (known or unknown). With the purchase of this vehicle, the buyer will pay for all repairs. We sell all cars as-is, which means you will pay all costs for any repairs. The dealer assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any oral statements about the vehicle.

If you need a 30-day tag, it’s $18.50. We handle the transfer of the title. We will also have to collect the tax for your county if you live in one of the following states: Arizona, California, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, and South Carolina.

We would like the vehicle picked up from our lot within 7 days of auction ending. There will be a $100 paperwork fee added on to the final sale price of the vehicle, along with a $15 title fee. By Ohio law, we must transfer this title into your name. The reason being is that if we would just send you the title and it was to get lost, there would be a problem. Or if we would send you the title and you didn't transfer it for several years and it got lost, it would be an even bigger problem. We follow the law of our state and will make sure that the title is transferred correctly for all customers. We will not pay any shipping fees, but we would be glad to assist your shipper in picking up your vehicle. If you have any questions, call Lou at 216-990-3880. Good luck bidding!

Thank you for looking at our 1981 Volkswagen Vanagon. This belonged to an 80 year old man who bought it new. Over the past 5 years, he hasn't been using it at all. After we bought the van, we had the whole fuel system, including the gas tank, cleaned out from the old gas. We also replacedthe fuel pump because that was old and originaltoo. After we drove the van around some, the slave cylinder for the clutchwas leaking, and we also replaced that. After everything was serviced on the vehicle, it's turn key ready to drivehome. The gentleman we bought this van from used it in the summertime when he went on vacations, and once in a while on Sunday (weather permitting). As you can see, with all the pictures, he kept it in original condition. He had no kids, so the backseats were probably barely used, and the front seats are still in excellent condition. The body is 100% original. All the glass is in perfect condition. The tires are not that old, and they are not dry-rotted. The front end is tight, the clutch is good, and the brakes are to the top. This has an old style magnet that you hold to the side of the steering wheel as a theft device, so we just taped it on, but you can do whatever you want with it in the future. You can see the silver tape on the steering wheel, inside of it is a magnet. There is also a mattressin the back of the vehicle that may have been used to sleep on short trips. This Volkswagen is so clean, it looks like one of those vehicles that disappearedfor 35 years, and showed up again not much differentlythan when it was built in 1981. If you're a Volkswagen enthusiast, or just want a very usable classic car to go to car shows and small trips with your family, this Volkswagen offers all that and more.
