This is where economics becomes a sticking point in these high asking prices. The theory has been that as SZ's went into the stratosphere,which they have, like $350,000-400,000, that the SS would tag along and follow. There is a major flaw in this theory. The SZ is very rare compared to an SS and basket cases almost don't exist. While restoration costs on SS's are comparatively high, there continue to be plenty of cars on the market that make a thorough restoration on them a better proposition than dipping into the 401K for this. It's called supply and demand. Pricing like this is quite abit ahead of the curves, IMO. Sprints are almost as costly to restore and would come up too if not for the fact that there are so many of them unless one singles out the rare ones like the early column shifts and the LW's which are very hard to find in rough condition.
