This is what appears to be a finely done Alpine. Yes, there are a few "incorrect" elements to it, but very easily made correct with minimal expenditure. Colored gas tanks? So, put the side panels on, and done deal.

I personally would like to see everyone that sells an Alpine set their price where it "should be" (Where it Should Be is just my opinion) We have fantastic little automobiles with exceptional styling and performance compared to many of the other brands.

Don't know how many of you have restored one of these, but I've got $17 into mine not counting any kind of labor. And someone wants to buy it for $10? This ain't no MGB. (Alright, not belittling the MGB.) Well, maybe a little.

Good for you, hope you get your price.

Default Not For Sale!

I've had Folks ask me what do I want for my '67 Commodore Blue back when it had the new re-built 1725.... I basically said "Not For Sale".... Meaning I had no intentions of getting rid of all that money spent and my labors (that is labor of love). It can not be recovered

I did however quickly say it would have to bring around $25K if it did go from me to whomever. One gent ( a Doctor followed me into the local NAPA Dealer and wanted it for his Dad. I told him there were a lot of them for sale on the SAOCA Forum, that mine was "Not for Sale" even at the $25K or more. You guys can understand hopefully what I am saying. I just was not ready to go thru that labor again just yet?

Then, now with the V6, at least another 8-10K.... Doesn't matter what someone or anyone has to say about THAT BEING TOO MUCH TO ASK

It is the Seller's! If you want it, haggle, spit and stutter, walk away or pay the price.

I like to purchase at my price of course, most all folks do, but there comes a time that you will not get it at your price.

Our Sunbeams are sold sometimes below and above their true value. Demand determines price. Desire determine purchase.

Ain't it great?

Keep'em on-the-road,

DanR

My 2 cents.

We, the owners set the selling price of these autos. I think it is great that there are Alpines being offered in the $20k range. I bought a daily driver in the $4k range, and have since spent another $12k to get it back into good shape. I wouldn't sell it for less than $16 now and once the body is finished, I'd be looking for $22k. Please, don't sell the good cars too cheap.

It sold at the Dallas Mecum auction 9/7. The buyer paid 19,800. (Hammer price 18,000 plus 10% buyer premium.)

HI Buffalo,

Congratulations on having found a way to balance the value you felt the car had with the marketplace. While you might not have gotten everything you hoped for, I think it's a pretty darn god showing for a well restored car. This is said without having seen the car in person, so take my opinion with a grain or two of salt.

How do you feel about the result?

How did you find the auction company to deal with? One never knows, the time might come, one day down the road...

Best Wishes,

David

Mecum had a good turn out and did a good job through out the auction. I was there all 4 days and had a great time.

The car did about as I expected. I was surprised I did not get any offer from posting here or on Hemmings. The buyer bought a good car ready to enjoy. I sold a car I put far too much into. I enjoyed the challenges and meeting good people along the way.

The buyer is crowing on Fakebook Tiger page, they'll let anyone join and post there

I rather have a SIII fins and a late model top.

Warren,
I'll sell you the remains of a rust free series 3 GT that we cut up for parts to restore my series 4. They're at Tiger Auto so if you want the left overs talk fast because it all goes in the dumpster in the next month. Come to think of it, I never see you post on the Tiger face book page. ??????

That's because he's a "lurker" with his wife's (or girlfriends account). Too afraid he will be exposed. 😄
