Renaissance about 14th century to the 17th century, promoted the rediscovery of classical philosophy, literature and art.Writing "another top price sale" is a bit like saying "all the children in Lake Wobegon are above average".
Once you've observed a lot of sales at a certain price, perhaps you need to accept that it's just the new normal and not a "top price".
I amNot sure which planet you’re on but step fronts are very rareWhat's the reason behind such high prices down under?
Can you not import?
In Europe such car would struggle to obtain half of what's mentioned here.
No offense towards the car but the 1600 GT junior is considered one of the lesser attractive models.

Pete is correct, as mentioned these cars have culturally not been favored as desirable and thus have been cut up, ..This thread is about a smooth nosed 1600GTj, not a step front.
I would imagine that a relatively original smooth nosed 1600 is a pretty rare car now as most would have been cut up to support the restorations of others and/or turned in to 2 litre race cars and bounced off many walls. If I bought this car, I would remove the unnecessary hoon parts and return it to a very tidy original 1600GTj. The modifications reduced the price IMO, especially because it still has a slow sized engine.
Looks like the ocha colour of the 1600GTj is popular today, but in the past it was not. The cultural/personal preferences trap of changing the colour of the car, well as the current stepnose owner of the light blue (was originally ocha) car on carsales may face? it's all a gamble when you start changing colours and then on sell only after 500km for what ever reason.If you search Carsales at the moment you will see there are a number of 105 coupes to choose from. Some look particularly nice for the money.
Interesting comparison... that only takes into account rarity and to me is where the collector market is warped, such as the early number plates in Australia. Why?!!I understand what you prefer, but the reality is that is not how the world works.
take the example of the first Australian penny minted 1911 value $26 in VF condition as opposed to the 1930 penny VF condition can be worth A$45,000 or more.
I understand what you are saying and of course I respect your value method and those who agree with you.Interesting comparison... that only takes into account rarity and to me is where the collector market is warped, such as the early number plates in Australia. Why?!!
My value is based on the first edition principle as well as original design factor. Kombi, E-type, etc. So I believe there are others that agree with me... :wink2:
