    Everyone finds A Sport Coupes, except me why is that? We'd need a photo to give an accurate guess but 5-10 grand sounds like the range based on what you posted.

    Last summer a guy in MN sold one that had been stored at my house for 12 years for $4500.00 complete. The guy that bought it got it running with some gas and a good battery and sold it for $6500.00.

    I'd give 5500 probably, but can't know without the pics. Its only worth what you will pay or the next guy in line will. So don't let it be the next guy and you can have it in your garage.

  9. No pics. Car is worth one dollar to a million dollars. Agree somewhere in the middle where you are both happy. Simple.

    price varies from one part of the country to another, plus right now the eco is in the fuckin tank so...

    check ebay, subtract 50% for ebay inflation then subtract another 25% for the economy

    there is afterall only three prices....1 what he wants for it.....2 what you want to pay for it.... 3 what you both agree on.......when you get the car home and you then think you`ve paid to much for it ...so what you have it ,we dont and you`ll only cry once

    you said he was asking "a lot" for this thing... however, $3000 for what you're describing is a deal, in any economy.

    PS... what the hell is a chassis? some english chick with large tits?

    "Reasonable" = lowballing, chiselling much less than it's really worth, trying to steal it cheap.

    as someone who's been there i can say this... you have no fucking business buying a project if you've been out of work that fucking long. if you're buying it to flip and make a little money in the process, i wish you luck, cause there are a lot more like you out there right now with no money.

    When you get done with the car you will put in $10,000.00 and a years work ... you are trying to shave a couple of hundred ... none of which will matter in the end ... If you want a Model A, $3000 isnt a lot of money for a complete one. I paid almost that for a coupe BODY. Just buy it.

    sorry ment to say frame..
    the good:
    anyway i bought it and for the money i got a shit load extra...
    complete boxed frame
    set of 16 inch real kelsey wheels
    nice grill shell
    complete steering
    every bit of hardware
    complete kicked up and boxed frame
    1957 chevy rear with a 4 link set up
    real nice complete hood with sides
    only interior i got was the rumble seat still intact
    and a bunch more
    the bad :
    so the guy who had it was going to make a roadster (rat rod ) is what he called it
    so what he did was go ahead and cut the tops of the doors off so the doors were even with the back of the car where to wood would be for the top that wraps around the back..and he also cut down the windsheild frame and cowl ...
    what i need to know is the measurement of the winsheild posts so i can re-weld in what he took out...anyone please..let me know ..also what can i re seal the tank with so i can make shure it wont leak if i fill it with fuel i want to use the origanal parts ..everything else is preety solid ...so a week of welding and grinding it will be back to factory..
