Good luck with your search.
Exactly........but someone who hasn't done a "small" Sunbeam Specialties order and been thrown back in their chair when it's all of a sudden $800. When the box arrives and you see what you really got you're like.....damn!

And that's just the start......

I'll sell you my Seires III for $25,000

And his might be "people in hell wish it was cooler".

I was splitting the 5-7k at 6k and subtracting, but it is a nice car. I'm not a fan of the piping on the seats and I would have them redone with stock upholstery. I'm still waiting for the right car for me.

The piping was stock on most cars until Series V. And some after that. Last series with the aerodynamic soft to cover! After that, all down hill! ��

The Granby SV Looks ok, I guess. Engine is rebuilt, so it says. Color Looks a bit off. Certainly priced right. Rust word comes to mind where it's at. Green is also my preferred color, but also preferred is matching color code, or at minimum matched to something known correct, like a Jan disk.

I mean what im about to say... If you wanted a great driving car that you can take to shows and be a crowd puller... It would be cheaper to take the 7k borrow another 18k from a credit union and buy pauls car per that offer ... Long term it would be cheaper than a 7k car.. You get enough rare options to add another 5k to a restoration cost alone.. And you get to enjoy it immediately.

Not sure what the interest on a loan in the states is.. But i bet it makes more sense and smiles per mile to buy pauls .... Only issue is no soft top... But hey.. Nothing's perfect!

Thank Mike!
Yes, it's actually "kind of" for sale. I just haven't advertised. Had it Atomic Motors here in Vegas for a few months because it was free storage while I parted out another car. Wasn't that serious then, and they put a serious commission on it.

When it suppose to happen, I suppose it will. But no, you couldn't restore my Series III GT for the price. Heck, $6500 would only get you the ProPrep interior!

Are you still looking for a series V.

One just came up on Craigs in Seattle. I came through the Portland craigs to me. I am not connected to the car or the owner in any way and know nothing beyond what the ad says.
White 67 $3000.

Good hunting
