    Referring to the modified Speedster that is the subject of this topic/thread - IMO - It may be worth $25K-$30K after you put $30K+ into it to restore it (not counting initial cost). Besides the money, it would be a real chore locating all of the missing bits. To me, the value in this car is as a modified car. Running and driving, it should be worth $7K-$8K to someone.

    Speedster for sale on Ebay and Dallas Craigslist (same one) Looks fantastic for the price! Has correct interior too. Why haven't you bought it?

    8K would be detailed under hood and the rest, and made a driver. More like 7K just road worthy.

    A red hardtop, what's not to like?

    I'd imagine restoring it to stock would be a financially foolish proposition....I'm I correct?
    Pretty much out of the question, 3K for a interior, another 3-4 K for chrome and trim, than you still have non stock paint. It could be done, but not by me. I'm hoping he did not trash the fog lamps, but he does not have the side trim for example.

    Found a Speedster

    It's a abandoned street rod project, but he did not get as far as clipping the frame or doing a Mouse motor. I'll look at it in a few days, but the price seems good. No, he does not have the Speedster trim. Do you think I can flip it, as-is in the 7K-8K range to a rodder ? He has a lot more in it and it is a driveway runner. He'll include a extra frame, a Nova sub frame, and some other parts.
Working...
