Myles - 

Do you or any of the northern CA guys know this car?  I was assuming, maybe cynically, that this was the sellers way of saying "serious buyers" only.

Guys....don't be so sure.....

You've been wrenching on cheap old Cortina's too long, and haven't stayed in touch with the collector car and vintage race car markets.

You can't touch anything as rare or competitive and collectible under $100K for racing....Alfa GTA, Porsche 356, Shelby, etc.  Several "average condition" Mk1 Locort race cars traded hands last year in the $50K - $60K range.  Those guys may have made a good investment.

Street versions are somewhat less to be sure, but I dare any of you to duplicate this for less than that amount if you had to have it done.  I've got more than that in mine, not including the car!

I was just watching Barret Jackson and continue to be amazed at guys spending hundreds of K$ on crappy muscle cars I thought were marginal value at $7K!  The world has changed.

On another note....(pardon the pun), my old guitar might be worth as much as $50K today.  Of course, its a '52 Les Paul (the first year), SIGNED by Les Paul at his 90th Birthday Party.  Its all about authenticity, provenence, rarity, and condition.  A rusted out Deluxe shell is sitll worth about $400!

The market is what the next one sells for.....

Real Lotus Cortinas are worth a lot but for what he's asking I would think

you could get at least 3.5 cars just like it.

Obviously at $87K he is not interested in selling it.
