1962 VW Bus Owned By Mike of American Pickers 2nd Auction Ended

Mike Wolfe is auctioning his 1962 Volkswagen Dual Side Door Microbus on eBay Motors. Bidding is up to $30K as of this post with 2d 22hrs to go. Seems like a lot of money to me, but others on the site are in similar price range.

It needs restoration but the basics are in good condition especially the floor-pans. Here is the item number 132865784088 if anyone wants to check it out. He has a slew of photos of the vanagon / microbus on the listing. The market must have skyrocketed on these VW’s.

I remember buying a Westfalla pop up camper at a dealers auction about 20 years ago in decent condition for $1800. Wished i still had it! 😎

As i always say. Never take a sellers word about a vehicles condition, always have it inspected. Though Mike here is a good dude that shoots straight from the hip.

Have to sit back and watch this buggy. Any guesses what it will bring?

Update 12/03/18: This 1962 VW Bus auction ended at $35,100. Sounds like a ton of money to me, especially since it needs restoration. The bid history is interesting too, hopefully Mike gets paid. FYI bids on vehicles and real-estate are non binding.

Update 12/09/18: Mike Wolfe’s VW Bus was relisted yesterday. Current bidding as of this update is $12,499 with 4 bids placed. Here is the item number 13288206720. This guy back in 2005 sued his deadbeat bidders and garnished their government paychecks. 😆

From the relisted auction: Mike’s Panel has been relisted due to winning bidder not paying. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Bidder’s with no feedback and low seller ratings have been blocked. If you don’t intend to pay DON’T BID!

Since when is a relisted automobile similar to the same vw bus that ended to a deadbeat bidder? Only on the motors venue.

It’s been a while since I’ve watched an eBay item. But they no-longer say this item has been relisted, but show something similar instead. I’m trying to be on my best behavior, BUT, eBay’s till just went Ka-ching $125 FVF! Feeling lucky? Roll the dice again! 😆

Update 12/16/18: Looks like having bidder restrictions in place doomed this motors listing. Mikes Vanagon brought only $19,000 during it’s second run.

132882067200 brings $19,000 on 2nd listing with reserve not met.

This high profile listing failure is an embarrassment for eBay Inc. It’s 1st listing proudly displaying it’s SOLD tag just adds to motors falsely inflated total successful sales. It’s successful for the house cash-register going ka-ching, but otherwise its a bust.

Though not as high profile as John Schneider’s Dukes Of Hazzard General Lee Auction that brought a whopping $9.9 MILLION to a sport bidder. It’s relisting also failed miserably not coming close to the reserve. Whatever happened to eBay’s golden days? 🙁
