Where should we sell my father's classic Volkswagen Beetle?

My father has a Volkswagen Beetle 1200cc which is reasonably good condition (for its age). At 96 he can no longer drive and wishes to sell the car. He bought it from new. Bearing in mind the age of the vehicle, what is the best way to go about this. There seems to be quite a few "sharks" online that are willing to quote, but somehow, I don't trust them.

Have a read of our guide to selling a classic: This covers the different options available to you and should give you a good idea of whether you wish to sell the car privately, at auction, or via a dealer.
