If buy now is $15k, it has a long way to go.
Nice, but not nice enough!
Not for you, or me, J-P S.

I've been thinking about selling my Midget on eBay (once I get a motor back in it). And when I do ... I may just "fish for a fool". No harm as long as the listing is an honest representation.

Thats a very well done car with alot of high end stuff on it, whoever restored this car took the high road everytime. Who knows if it will bring $15K, probably not, one thing is for sure though, you probably couldn't restore it yourself with that level of parts used on this car and be under the $15K, if someone ends up getting this car for say $10K or less compared to restoring they have saved money.

I tell you guys the same thing I told the MGB guys, as long as you think your cars are worth nothing, they will be.

I'm not normally a fan of the padded dashes, but this one in tan with the black top looks really nice.

Nice car, but man at $15K there are lots of nice cars.

You could get a decent MGA, an excellent MGB, a TR3 and these days (if you were brave enough), even a running Ferrari 308.

One Question: I had a narrow roll bar like this in my '67 almost 40 years ago (I think it was an Autopower.....and mine wasn't chrome).
The one in this red car looks like it's put in backwards!
I don't think the halo bar is supposed to "lean forward" like that.

DOES look Nice! :thumbsup:

Considering the location, he might get a taker on the BuyItNow as there are a lot of rusted-hulks in that region. Maybe someone will appreciate the solid sheetmetal & $$ spent....

I'm ALWAYS supportive of Spridgets selling for more $$, as it makes me think of my collection as more of an investment. (As opposed to being the "money-pit" that it often is....)

I do agree that the roll bar LOOKS backwards. MAYBE this is to fit under the soft top better?? Either way, it LOOKS strange.)

Hope he gets good money for it. Maybe he can spend some of the proceeds on a spell-check program.... (Just where exactly is "Toronot" anyway?!?) :devilgrin:

Just keep going north until a certain part of your anatomy freezes off but everyone is polite about it - it's about 50 mi. (ahem - 80 km) north of that :lol:
