Neat find....

I am going to be critical because of the asking price of almost 400k. Fake exhaust tips on a 400k car is goofy, and it isn't a great looking car in all aspects. In some aspects it looks great, but not all angles. I think this car in a hard top might look better.

The ad from 1960'* also looks like fake exhaust tips, so wtf do I know.

I doubt it will sell over $100k, but I know nothing.

Even for a one of a kind car...I think the asking price is a bit much! Nice looking ride though and I'd take it for a spin if given the chance.

IF, I had the money. MINE!

Just think, in 10-20 years, that car would be worth more than 400K. Even if its not worth it today.

Wouldn't be too bad of an investment if someone younger (i.e my age group) had the money. If you could hold on to until it was only one a handful left you could turn it around big time.
