$14,500 is an awefully strong number. One thing he does not show is a photo of the dash. From the photos available, it looks like he has a dash cover on it.

Markets are by no means perfect, but both the gold and AlfaTango's GTV6 were bargains. We have seen several mint cars sell in the $10,000 in the recent past, and this red car on Ebay seems close in condition to those but with higher mileage.

It may very well have to do with the left coast. The gold one above is from L.A. or O.C. Mine is from San Diego. The seller got zero bids at a $4500 reserve then it was relisted at $3500 with no reserve which I bid. It then got a bid at $4500. The winning bidder had zero feedback and never came through. Gee, what were the odds there! I was contacted and was told the car was mine for $4000. I said hey, if this "other" bidder was a flake or phoney I should have won it at $3500. I knew he wanted $4500 so we decided to meet and since it did have a crunchy # two gear I told him I'd give him $3750 to be fair. There you have it. I just did the tranny and replaced the dual disc clutch with a Milano unit and all is good. I do have right around $5300 into it now so I'm right in line with the one Randy got for GiuliaBianco (gold one).

I'm thinking of taking it to the Palm Springs Concourse and parking it in the corral with a FS sign to see if some of these buyers from the east or midwest may want a rust free GTV6 (mine was tuff coated the second day the original owner had it) Of course it will be at a little bit of profit :)

Nice story. I will agree that GTV6 prices vary based on where you are located. Rust free cars even with high mileage are relatively easy to find in California. However, when new these were typically daily drivers and after a few snow seasons they will die of terminal rust. I remember looking at a red 86 that was very similar to the ebay car in terms of mileage, exterior and interior condition, but it had rust holes in the engine compartment big enough to put your arm through and touch the tires. :( Rust free GTV6's in the Midwest are about as rare as hen's teeth.
