Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1971

Hello, I have a really cool looking vw bug. It has the great patina look. empi wheels. And fairly solid. I purchased this vw. With the hopes of getting it on the road. It starts up and runs. It use to move. But, I have a problem With the transmission To shift. It is the autostick. I cannot find anyone honest to fix it.. I have had it to several local shops. But every tells me different, And playing guessing games. Tehy tell me from a wire to the shifter, And to a solenoind on the left rear.Or possible other things.. I have no problem spending the money to fix it. But, I plainly ask. If I spend the money. Will you make it shift and run??. Nobody wants to guarantee me that. It use to move in gear, sit there and idle. It had no reverse. And in order for me to shift. I had to shut it off. And move the shifter. and re-start it.. And now from the last so called expert. It wont move at all.. So I am frustrated with it.. I use it currently as a car in front of my business. "like a advertising sign".. There is always someone stopping by to look at it. NOW, I WANT TO SELL IT BEFORE THE SNOW HITS.. And, I do not want to pay for winter storage.. SO IT WILL NEED TO BE TRAILERED. IT STARTS UP. BRAKES ARE GOOD. STEERS GOOD.. I AM LOOKING FOR THE VW FIXER UPPER. THIS WOULD MAKE HIM A GREAT VW.. MAYBE CONVERT TO A STICK?? V8 AUTO ?? IMAGINATION IS GREAT!! THANK YOU..
