There have been some GTVs---stepnoses---that have gone for that kind of money but I tend to think $50k is still such strong money that its an outlier price. If people are putting that price on a car they're selling, they're most likely trying to boost the market. That said, $50k isn't even break-even costs on a fresh restoration so you'd have trouble building a quality stepnose for that kind of money unless you were doing most of the work yourself. Still, stepnoses and roundtail spiders are definitely sitting on the price escalator and are, IMHO, under-priced compared to sundry 356's and even TR3's. The next year or so will be interesting. At some point our beloved old Alfas may get too expensive to drive and that will be a sad day.
