I keep finding myself searching teabay for this car. I can't help thinking it will be a good investment.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this...

A museum piece?

It's been listed on eBay as a classified ad for a long while, seems no-one's interested at that price.

Do you feel the price is high? I mean, I would expect to pay 1-3k for a car needing full restoration, 3-7k for running cars in need of cosmetic and minor mechanical issues. 7-12k for clean restored cars(or original clean), poss more for competition and truly sorted cars.

I feel the true value of this car is circa 16k. The seller could be right to see it as an appreciating classic, with very good history, so is prepared to sit on it with a good wedge across the screen price.

Tempted to call him, but knowing my nature if I open communications, then I won't rest until it is in my unit under a wooly car cover

Going purely on the fact I've seen it advertised for probably more than a year, then either it's over priced or not very well advertised. Considering even rolling shells sell on eBay for up to 1,000 I doubt he's struggling in terms of page views...
