I know. And you won’t pay market price for chrome, seals, or any of the other NLA parts because people want more than they were selling for new 50 years ago. 🙂
26K is perfectly reasonable for what appears to be a solid driver. With the 2.0 mated to a 5 speed. The body looks pretty straight. The carpet is new’ish. I don’t like cloth seats but those look to be in good shape. All that, AND a sun roof. I mean come on. I bought mine for 11k, but well more than that into it, and while I prefer mine to that one on BAT, 25K is about what you are in to buy a basic driver and then get it spiffed out. The money, then all the time to do it. Someone is wanting something turn key that is ‘good enough’ and put a smile on their face now. Not two or three years from now while it sits in the garage while they tinker at night. If it ever gets done. Time is worth money too.
I once once wringing my hands over a particular boat and wanting to hold out for one about 10k less. I told my buddy about this, then he told me: You know, I used to think like that, then I realized all the time I was losing with my family I could have enjoying with it in the meantime and realized it was not worth the money I thought I was saving. I went out and bought the boat next day. Best thing I ever did. The fun we had with it that summer was wroth many times more than the money I was trying save.
So okay, you wouldn’t pay 5k for it. (Not trying to pick Slavs.). How much would you pay for what you want, then how much time and money would it take to get it how you want.
PS: That vgaetajr is a douche nozzle though. Total poser. He thinks he is scaring people off. That, or his is some 15 year old sitting in his room and will stand up the seller. Just sayin’
