I Bought a Totaled Volkswagen Phaeton W12 at Auction for $1,000! Then a Forklift SMASHED Into It!

I bought this wrecked, totaled, and very cheap Volkswagen Phaeton at the salvage auction. This car is very similar to the Bentley Continental Flying Spur and the Audi A8. When it was picked up, it was damaged at the auction likely by a forklift driver. We get the majority of the body damage repaired, and begin this rebuild project, but I'm not sure I want to finish this VW. Needless to say I sold it in very short order...

  • Hey Sam, what's up with this project?

  • 😍😍👍💕

  • not that rare. There are multiple in europe

  • My grandfather owned one. I drove it a few times... son crashed it in 2017 😡

  • Next time a car hauler shows up with straps thru the rims like that, don't pay him. Its in mine and any other decent auto broker contract for carriers not to do that🤦‍♂️

  • The panoramic meter naturalistically fry because salad intraoperatively hop against a splendid land. inexpensive, capable vietnam

    • Are you off your meds again?

  • Exlente price is

  • Passat failure 🤣🤣 laughs in Scottish.

  • look how far the doors open. dam nice care

  • I would paint the whole car, it deserves it.

  • Is it american Standard to paint a high class german car under open sky instead in a paint shop?

    • No unless you're trying to prove that you don't have to spend much money to do a reasonable job.

  • did you really just ask if you should finish the car after putting a few thousand into it already?????????????

  • Yea get it finished and polished up!! I want to hear that engine purr...

  • I would love to see it done.

  • Any update on this?

  • well the heading is wrong. but otherwise good video

  • Heh, the retracting airvent covers, Is literally.. Amazing. like a budget A8L.

  • This is the exact car that Doug DeMuro reviewed 3 years ago.

  • Fckn bargain

  • Want to see the video of this car being finished

  • You look like ur related to Jack cecil

  • How is that totaled? It just needs a new bumper and a hood

  • Sam that quarter panel Damage is fresh, i knew it

  • Its not rare though. Tons of them are for sale for 2000-4000€. Trash car that no one buys.

  • I'd have it over a Merc or BMW. Real pity about that very nasty dent , makes you wonder about hired hands, either careless or worse. In future ask the the car transporter guy to send pictures of the vehicle BEFORE he loads it. It's that much harder to negotiate once you have taken possession of it. Sam said that fifty percent of his issues remain unresolved.

  • I only an occasional viewer, so maybe someone can answer this: Has Sam ever actually finished a project car?

  • I saw one of these in Australia years ago when they would have been new. The w12 sounded amazing. I have never seen one since.

  • Wait, wait, you're telling me that the insurance sale will screw you!? No way!!!!

  • Finish the Volkswagen that way we can see what it looks like beautiful car

  • as an autobody tech, i hate how some of your bodywork is done, some of the repairs are shitty and i feel you are paying too much and you're stroking these hack's egos. i apologize if my comments offend you.

  • Beautiful work man! Congratulations!

  • I would not buy a car from Crockparts.

  • Most definitely, would love to see a video of you actually finishing a car.

  • The car is superb, a close acquaintance has a perfect example ... But it looked like a Passat and still does hence it failed as Sam alludes to. Indeed, the same story as the Peugeot 607 which was a superb beast, but it looked way too much like a Pug 406 rep mobile, so it totally failed and perfect examples could be bought for loose change at the trade only auctions. Depends if you want a superb car or to impress the neighbours ... My DS23 still serves me as a daily driver and wonderful it is.

  • Please show me this car when its done

  • Whats That Music Mix 9min in anyone know

  • Finish it... Yeah!!

  • I got a forklift ad on this video, nice one SEnewss

  • These are rare in the US? I see like 10 of these every day up the town

  • Where are the autobody guys? That seemed like a shit load of filler!

  • So I pay for premium to have no adds, then the channel puts their own adds in, WTF?

  • I found one in a local junk yard a while back and was extremely surprised

  • I was one of the few VW people that's had to do a torque converter on one of those. The Phaeton was a way over engineered car.

  • SAW THIS CAR ON THE OWNERS TIKTOK.

  • I wish you did more follow ups on your projects

  • what year is it from?

  • Why you always buying bmw and wv

  • Me

  • Wow that guy doing the body work is actually really really good !

  • Copart cut off the curtain airbags on a Jetta I bought, so in the pictures it looked like they didn't deploy and didn't do damage, which it did to the headliner

  • Oh man when he sprayed that primer and it was still wet, I mistook the reflections in it for creases in the body and I was like NOOOOOOOO ITS FUCKED UP STILL, and then I saw it dry in the next shot the body lines were perfect, and I was like oh shit thank God

  • why the fuck would they make it look so generic

  • Did I get clickbaited? Timestamp....

  • We still get a couple of these every once in a while at the vw dealership i work at. Had a newby blow the airbag suspension one time. Shop had to pay for it. Volkswagen of Germany literally overnighted the parts to us. From. Germany.

  • I know it breaks your heart!!!!

  • That car in my country would cost 60.000 euros fixed

  • This rear panel repair is the worst thing I’ve ever seen !

  • Continental has the same steering wheel

  • Not cm across any vdo showin finished car yet...pls do some

  • now i want to finish my autobody classes

  • I know where two are sitting

  • Mierda video

  • Hate the ‘paid promotion’ element of these videos. So boring when the try to fit o maze into every video

  • Passat sells superb in europe. So not a failure :)

  • How many flies got stuck to the paint? Really painting outdoors?

  • The only reason Copart refunded you anything is because you are a public figure with a platform, I bought a 2008 MB CLK with 30kmi 3yrs ago it was advertised as clean title but when i got the documents it was only a bill of sale, I quickly called Copart to inform them and they gave me the run around and said that there was nothing they could do as the car was listed under bill of sale (BS!) I went back to look at the auction and from the time i had looked at the listing to when i spoke with the agent, the listing had been updated to Bill of sale; That was some BS and i will never buy from them again.

  • Is it allwheeldrive?

  • So this guy loves endless money pits the trash group of German brands. Mercedes BMW vw group. Endless money pit it's a 5 year old car then sell it as fast as possible to dupes like guys like this channel.

  • Lol in my country these cars are like €1000/€1500 for a good one because nobody wants them.. new price was €150.000 for most on the internet.

  • Wait. Donating money to those incarcerated?

  • Hardly rare

  • We’re going to take all of this paint down so we can get it ready for Phil. Is he another one of your buddies? 😂😂

  • E63s is more fast

  • Late to the party, I’d debadge it, tint it out, black wheels, flat black wrap or flat black respray.

  • Copart sucks and terrible. I stop buying cars from them cuz they are scums. They let dealers sell fake damage cars and hide airbag damage so people will bid more money. And when the cars come they always never look as the pics. They are low life only care about how can they make more money and how much more fees they can charge it’s crazy. It cost almost 1k just fees for a normal car that’s worth less then 20k. The funny thing is that the cars come not taking care. They let other countries bid on the cars and the prices go up so bad that it’s not even worth buying them from Copart anymore. IAAI doesn’t let other countries bid on the auction only America. I give respect to IaaI. They only have insurance cars with no fake dealers or fake damages. Keys are always ther. Not like Copart. They always missing. They take the keys and resell them on eBay. IAAI always has two keys not like Copart they always take the second key specially expensive cars. Also Copart keys are missing and spares. They take it and resell them. Iaai is the best period. They only help u cuz u are a blogger. If u were regular guy they would never give refund or fix the problem even if they made the mistaken. Never buy cars from Copart

  • COPART SUCKS. They are scums. All the fees they charge is crazy. They always loose keys always the drives the load the cars make damage and they don’t care. All they care about is fees and fees and money.

  • People in Brazil ruin their finances with shitty VW gol l4 16v. Out there they got THIS!

  • i'd like to see you take us through the full copart option. Like a behind the scenes where you choose a car, all the fun little steps, to the rebuild and selling it.

  • As a big VW fan, I would love to see this car restored!! It’s a pinnacle of Piechs reign at VW AG, def a piece of history

  • The phaeton is ugly af tho, just like every volkswagen besides the old golfs lol.

  • Copart is a POS organization

  • Hi Sam please let us know some updates about this car...waiting.

  • And? Where is the result??? Fuck of with you're fake videos

  • The pheaton isnt that rare in europe, you see them often in the Netherlands

  • that dent removal guy did an amazing job. I would love to see this car restored and put back on the road

  • Finish it

  • Pheaton isnt rare

  • Dust on paint? no.

  • Adjusting for inflation 145,000$ n for Europe you can throw another 10k$ to that amount

  • Bentley Continental W12 was the same engine

  • Let’s finish it!

  • I would've welded that pinhole on the shock absorber.

  • F

  • „Phayeten“🥴

  • Very nice video. Could you recommend any website with the best quotes for the transportation of the cars?

  • Nice car, i hope you are happy with it.

  • the fuck is this amg commercial ???

  • Beautiful car!

  • U speak too much...

  • I hate the opportunity to drive one of these W12 Phaetons when our VW brought his to the dealership. What an incredible ride. Definitely finish this car.
