  • 1963 Daytona Skytop on Kijiji

    Seen what looks like a factory skytop on Kijiji for sale in BC canada . Would be a nice car all rebuilt.

    Great, the guy found it rusting outside in someone's field with nothing left but the roll-top, drug it home for Free, and now wants $2000.00 for it when he discovered Skytops are rare?

        "Free" is cut off after the third letter. Maybe it actually says Fred, for Fred Sanford?

          It could have been one of Glen Oosting's cars that is now up for sale. I believe he was from 100 Mile House.

            You could be right Craig . I thought he was in 150 mile house though. He rebuilt the carb on my 62 lark . I wonder what happened with his cars .

              If it's a complete car like he says, and it's as solid as it appears, it's not a bad price. Pretty desirable car! If he got it free as it appears, probably $1000-1500 would buy it. Joe Barrier, don't look!

                The resale price for any item is based on its value, not its acquisition cost. If I bought a Picasso at a yard sale for $5.00 I don't have a moral responsibility to resell it for say 10 bucks. If this car was indeed free, someone took the trouble to see the potential to make a few bucks and haul it home. Trust me, if I found a free R3 engine, I'd still expect to ask the market value on resale.

                  Agree. Doesn't matter a bit.

                    Bob I did look.......no worries....I just cut a check this week for tuition payments on three kids (ouch). It will be a long while before I purchase anything more than a parts car. Plus with one skytop already in the shed waiting for restoration, it will be a while before she approves another one.....same goes for a Packard wagon. Take care

                      Dang JDP, you stole my thunder on that one. Just cuz I bought my 54 Coupe for $50 does not mean I'm willing to sell it off as cheaply. Of course, that was 40 years ago, but still accounting for inflation, I still would not sell it for that. Gimme a break. I think he has a great find and should reward himself, (monetarily) for the insight to drag it home... do some homework.... find its value..... then shop the market for a buyer. What the heck is wrong with that???

                        Maybe it says " Fred " not " Free " . . . ?
