If the buyer allows, I will post the final sales figure.
Here is a reason that we must think about what we post before we push the send button. One reason that the buyer might not wish to have the details exposed is that there may be idiotic comments made about the price. If we all want to know what a car like this is worth then we should be constructive and supportive in our comments on this forum. Maybe then we will get some good data that will help us all.
If Mark wanted me to I could make his final post be the last post and then lock the thread. Just an idea. I really want to know how the story ends.
I can give you a story that shows how little I know about the value of cars. A few years ago a guy from 3000 miles away outbid a number of people for a local fairly rare 356 in fair original condition. All us "smart guys" figured the car was worth $40k based on its value restored versus the cost to restore. Man, were we laughing when he reportedly paid $80K! Well, it wasn't long until that car doubled in value from the $80k that he paid! Guess who's laughing now?
Imagine what a great project this Speedster would be for a guy with more skills than money. Sweat equity to the max!
