"Not currently running" Needs brakes & wiring work.

This little one looks straight from the one picture provided, and the price seems right - go get it!

He even says: "600 bucks takes her away....or make me a reasonable offer"

Also a blue 62 Sprite in the Portland area $1500 (Datsun running gear):

Yeah but think of all that cash you could get by buying up a truckload of these & shipping them to your location...

Wonder what it would cost to ship that thing to PA.
Us east coasters never see deals like this.

I think it would be more cost effective to band together a few buyers and buy a few of these and truck them out there.
One at a time will be much more expensive per vehicle.

Of course if you could get it running & drive it home that might be even better, at least it would be an adventure! There are most likely enough members here to help out across the country, so if you got stuck part way and could get online then you could get help.

Of course not having all those opportunities has probably kept the wife happy all these years.

Ok - couldn't help myself - I just sent an email to the guy with the red one.
My wife really loves driving Frank, so I am sure she wouldn't mind it if we had another Midget... :wink:

Dangerous logic, my friend! :p What's the expression? It's always easier to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission? hehehe...

Probably more like $1500 these days, with fuel prices. I know I couldn't get any quotes under a grand for Sacramento-to-Rochester, for my 1500, and that was back in 2006.
