Worth the money ?

A bit high i think but tempted.

Looks good and he has chosen a lot of good components there. He has probably spent a fair bit more than 18K on it but then you can buy complete cars for less and who has 18K to spend in one go on a kit car?

May be hard to sell as it is. Probably best to finish it and sell it as a runner.

Bit of copyright infringement on that advert, I'm certain that looks like a DB hardtop replica in the photo's ;)

For one moment there I thought it was JP's. But it belongs to a Richard Sibley according to the advert.

Yes it is possibly worth what he has put down but he is asking too much for it, when you sell a part built car you have to accept a substantial loss of money IMHO

I'd agree. However, I would suggest there is more than 18k's worth there but how much more. If you were intending to build from scratch anyway make an offer, you could get a bargain. Don't forget another 2k for wheels/tyres as well as all of the rest (without paint/interior) ...:D

Done a bit of research and i dont think hes spent much more than 18k. Decided to put an offer in. Whats the engine worth guys?

10k tops I would have said.

I would have expected the wheels and tyres too for 18k.

Definately the windscreen and some seats.

It will probably cost around 12K to complete you would need to do a detailed list of required parts IE windscreen, gearbox, wheels/tyres, interior, instruments, paint.

I would want info & receipts for the engine, without that the engine is worth 500.

I think Dingo is about right 10-12K tops.

JMHO Tony.

I put in an offer for 15k with full reciepts for engine and inspection and he turned it down. Definately not worth more than that.

He is defiantly asking too much I agree with Dingo 10k max

I think 15k is way way way OTT, there is a very presentable RAM with a 350 chev (the ex hallmark rebuild car) up for sale a 16500, finished painted, registered taxed etc etc and a couple of daxes around 17 18 grand By my reckoning the ebay kit car needs at least another 10k throwing at it, and thats assuming the work already done has been done right.

IMHO The seller is mad to turn down 15k, either that or hes waiting for a nutter to come along (they do exisit!!)

Dont know about 10k. Dax would charge over 10k for rolling chasis and body alone which is what he has. And there would be no wait if someone was after one. Everything together i reckon he's spent 18-20k depending on the engine. But ive not been on the scene long enough i guess. If something similar came up for 10k id snap it up.

What he should realize is unless a nutter appears he does not have a car for sale, he has a part built kit & especially in this climate there are only so many people with money burning a hole in there pocket who want to tackle it.

12K absolute MAX

I know what youre saying, but unfinished kits never ever realise much more than half the value of the sum of their parts, and lets be frank, most completed cars have cost more to build than they sell for.

Bet he wished he accepted my 15k now hes got it listed for virtually that anyway. Luckily with the help of the forum im no longer the nutter. Still a little tempted though :)
