I was watching this Jensen Interceptor but it is going too high for a car that needs a complete interior and trunk and maybe a top. Mech. it should be good to go.

I am surprised it went that high.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

^They have been known to go mid 50's for a high #2 or low #1. I don't think a genuine #1 exists for that car yet, definitely not enough to gauge the price on the one the may exist somewhere in time. This car is really well sorted, Lucas is basically abolished, the engine rebuilt in a tastefully and intelligent appearing way, all that is left is the cosmetics. I imagine the paint and bodywork good but nowhere near great. The interior is sub par, but easily fixed and not too expensive if you do not use the foul, ignorant, low rent, low quality, connolly leather as per original. The plastic chrome looked particularly bad as it always does on the dash vents. I presume the trunk needs a redo as well considering he didn't even bother showing it. Also he didn't mention the A/C or heat and we all presume what that means. Leaving the quarter windows up is either horrible taste or trying to hide at least one no worky. The car smells essentially like a well cared for high mile car that a rich dumby took to a decent mechanical repair shop. Note the owner couldn't even take the silly scan dot stickers off the Michelins. Being hands off and an old car collector is a recipe for financial disaster. I am sure the owner wants to recoup his more than $15k in mechanical refurbishment and upgrades. Good luck. These cars are too cheap to warrant that.
Ever notice how perfect looking prime examples of restored cars look after they reach values of more than $100k? Coincidence? Nah.
