(At least that's who I think it is..) Scroll down to the bottom.

Thought about writing him, but probably out of my league at present:(

No price, that's always a bad sign to me. I usually don't bother to ask, but I did on a decent 48 Land Cruiser that sounded interesting because the guy said he was getting 1-2K offers and felt it was worth more. Since i agreed, I asked what the bottom dollar figure was, and he came back with 20K. :)
Of course I need yet another R2 Hawk like a hole in the head, but at least I know how to put them together now.

I agree with you about no price listed, but if it's indeed Mr. Bove this is a known seller; so it may be a good deal. I'd love to ask the price, and see pictures, but I would never bother anyone if I wasn't seriously interested.

If anyone here follows up on this, keep us posted!

I'll let you guys grab the car, I'll just hang out on this tree limb in case Nels needs me.[}:)] Seriously, someone that does not have the 30K-50K to buy a done R2, should buy this car. There are not that many unrestored R2's left and all I'd do is make it into another expensive restored one. Save it from a flipper and build your dream car.

Yes, that's my car. I actually intended and thought that I had put a price in. I guess I forgot that and a phone #. As I was writing the ad the wife decided we wanted to go out to dinner "NOW". The price is $12K and would make a nice car to build. Pretty much everything is there.
