I'm sure you have your reason(s) but I guarantee you 10,20 30 years down the road you will kick yourself for selling it. Good luck, it looks like a winner. Sincerely doubt someone could start with one and have one restored for that price. Take it from one who knows - it is much smarter to buy a fully restored car than do the other route, IMHO

I'm kicking myself now! A guy came by yesterday looking at it for his Brother-in-law. I gave him a ride and when I asked him if he wanted to try it, he replied, "Your having too much fun, you keep driving." I love this car and it pains me to sell, but the wife won't let me sell her pretty little Porsche 356C.

Took it for a 75 mile drive yeaterday afternoon. Exceeded 100 MPH several times and ripped up and down a local canyon. It is way to much fun to drive and just a hoot to see the looks on folks faces as I pass or drive by them. I drove it to work today and giggled all the way!

Bump! I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Anybody got any ideas where I might find some buyers? I have lots of inquirys, but only a few serious. Would $13,000 do it? I have never had a car so good and so hard to sell. I just don't get it. GTV's and Spider's are a dime a dozen. We have a really rare, unique and truely sorted vehicle here and it's going to sell for pennys on the dollar. Hmmmmm? I have to chuckle.

It hurts me to see this car for sale so cheap. At this point it's beyond a steal! Give it to your son.

I'm one or those people who would really like to buy this car. I contacted Jeff to ge zip and location to check into shipping. However, the problem comes in on the money end. I,and I'm sure many of us, don't have the cash for this kind of purchase. When I apply for a loan, they go by NADA value, which on this vehicle is 6000.00 [I'm surprised they even had it in the book]. Now, I agree that this car is worth way more than that, but to get the loan amount needed, they want substantiating proof in the form of an appraisal by a licensed appraiser and a full set of photo's of the car. And then you still don't know if they'll approve the loan. Like I said, I think the car is worth the asking price but I'm just giving at least one reason why it's so hard to sell.

Have you tried one of those outfits that specializes in financing collector and special interest cars? I see a few of them advertising in "Sports Car Market". I have no personal experience with any of them, but I wonder if it would be akin to the collector car insurance companies vs. regular insurance companies in how they treat older and more obscure cars. Just a thought.

Actually I'm working with Capitol One now. I was just relating one experience to show how difficult it could be.

This really is an excellent Super and if I had not already bought one, I would be on it like a duck on a June bug! When you see it up close, it will astound you!

Someone got a gift!

For what Jeff was kind enough to settle on for a price this car was a bargain. Disturbing for me however as it does not portend well for the future of other Supers. If a person cannot put effort into doing a car like this and then not expect a reasonable return two things will happen A it will prevent others from fixing them up and B shops like mine won't do them anymore and then have to endure the heartbreak of watching what Jeff has just gone through. If cars are not being restored there are none in the pipeline so to speak and they just end up trashed. Wake up and smell the coffee people! Fred.

C'mon Fred, Jeff built this car the way that he wanted it, you were paid well for your work, and the car sold for market value. I don't think that Jeff put $25,000 into it thinking that he would get $30,000, so he did it to please himself. There will always be people willing to pay to have their dream car.
