I still have the CMC invoice for my black classic body Speedster bought back in Nov 1988 - end of year sale price of $6495 for kit, $150+ for black, $225 crating, $120 bumper over-riders, and big $1400 (1250 # from Miami to No VA) shipping charge. (I shipped through my brother's company for $520). Mine include crappy options - Vintage gauges, monza exhaust, AM/FM radio, alum valve covers, chrome air cleaner, top/tonneau and car cover. Deluxe pre-assembly pkg was hung doors - just hinges not latches.
Suggested retail was $8995 (plus for some colors) for classic and $9495 for California wide body. Rollup window option was another $1695 but offered at special rate to me of $995 (I passed). Super Beetle conversion kit was $125 (probably a great deal). All included the massive steel bonded in subframe.
So - the $7k for an un-molested kit still in crate is a good deal.
