    Not sure if its a repost but is it a cheap car at the asking price?

    Re: New project Car for Ian perhaps!

    FWIW, that's the starting price in an auction, not the asking price.
    I'm surprised there were no bids on it. 
    Should have left it in Europe maybe, as I think there might have been more interest here for this model.
    In view of its original condition, the owner should offer it to Ron Dennis for his collection as a "before"  version of the ProCar racing version he built for BMW back in the 1970s.

     I love that car. 


    Re: New project Car for Ian perhaps!

    The car has been sold.

    I know next to nothing about value of old rare cars but $10,000 appears to be very cheap price for a limited production excellent condition low mileage BMW M1.

     nick you should've gone for it 


    Re: New project Car for Ian perhaps!

    Nick - As Fritz pointed out that wasn't the asking price, it was the starting price...

    It was withdrawn from eBay, presumably because the seller got the price he was looking for elsewhere.

     John , I understand that. Certainly the car went for more than $10,000. However, the initial price often sets price expectations.

    Reserve is reasonable for this collectible car and reserve will not be disclosed

    Very likely the reason why it hasn't been sold in the auction.

    I'd say the seller asked too much money and no, the 10000 are not the starting bid.

    According to eBay, $10,000 was starting bid, meaning any bid below that would not be accepted by the "system", and there were 0 bids when the auction closed.  Smiley

    Correct.Smiley

    A private arrangement was worked out by the seller. I have had first hand experience doing this.Smiley

    Guys,

     

    Sorry to hijack this thread, but since we are on the subject of classic cars who can help me find out what certain cars are priced at?

    I have a buddy who wants to sell a few classic cars but unsure of what price to ask,

     

    1948 Lincoln Convertible

    1965 Mercedes 230 SL Convertible

    1963 Corvette Convertible

    1967 Shelby Cobra

     

    Thanks,

     

    Moser

    It would be virtually impossible for someone to give any meaningful opinions without seeing the cars, as their values will depend so much on condition. Another factor is that Beirut is probably not exactly a sellers' market for such cars. 

    Are there any specialist dealers locally who could advise?

    Hey Fritz,

     

    Thanks for your reply, unfortunately we don't have any experts here.  However there are some collectors in Lebanon that would know their stuff, but those are the people he would want to sell to, so they would probably give him low prices.  He inherited these cars from a  family member and just wants to make sure he receives a fair price for them.  I was doing some research online and for the corvette you can find similiar cars and prices varrying from 35k-55k USD depending on condition and if original parts are still on the car.  The Lincoln, it seems is the prize here, as one was sold 2 years ago in the states for about 110k USD.   I might be mistaken but it's all about finding the right client when it comes to these classics.  Someone trying to complete a collection is willing to pay more than someone who isnt.  Or you might find somone who had one of these growing up and still has feelings for these cars, and will pay more than the next guy.  I've seen the cars from the outside and they are in good condition, I haven't been able to check them from underneath to check for rust, or start them, as the paper work is still being filled out to transfer the titles. I did take a few pics though, I dunno if they will help with appraisal.

    The Corvette is a 62 not 63

    And the Shelby is a GT350

    Re: New project Car for Ian perhaps!

    Your buddy's best bet might be to check a web site like this one for similar cars and start pitching the prices based on what he finds:

    http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/carsforsale/

    The limited market in Lebanon might be a restriction but, on the other hand, it could work to his advantage if he finds someone locally who is aching to buy something like what he has and could avoid the hassle of sourcing abroad and importing.

    Thanks Fritz:) you've been very helpful!


    Re: New project Car for Ian perhaps!

    Great cars for sale by your friend. I would have him consider this website too.. It'll get initial attention and serious interest will ship from your location im sure as they are seemingly beautiful classic cars in good condition.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)
