I'm sure you understand the value in such a car, I'd pay $7900 for that. "low mile cars" often are not as perfect as they describe and need heaps of maintenance because....well, they aren't driven often. There's a lot of value in this car.$7,900, dreaming....
For that kind of money you can buy yourself a low mile car.
it all depends on your point of view...in a strictly market point of view, there's a bigger customer base for a low mileage all-original car. Most people that would be interested in owning a modified/restored car (like the people on this forum) would like to do it themselves...to see it start to finish. so that inheritently lowers the value of the car relative to a low milage one (supply and demand), meaning there are less people out there that would be willing to spend money on a "messed with" car, but that doesn't mean the car is over priced....well, exactly, it's beautiful, and seemingly a lot of love, sweat, labor, and money went into it, but I suppose the real question is:
Does this type of restoration = selling price of a low mile car (as we've seen on eBay lately)?
That's a red flag for sure, but I have to ask, who would sink that kind of money into a flood car? It's not like insurance would have covered all that he did. Plus the claim would've most likely showed up on the report. So I'm thinking it's probably not a flood car....hmmm. Check out the CarFax like "Vehicle History Report", on the listing.
There are some notes about the car being titled in August 2005 around some FEMA records, specifically it says:
"TITLE (Title #:10121937622103908) Reported registered/titled prior to storm event in FEMA designated storm area. We recommend a professional vehicle inspection to confirm no storm damage. "
...also, if I am reading it right, it does say it has been titled 6 times.
