With the purchase price of the car you can afford to play nice. You've already won. Mr. Marti is a good guy. Assume good will and try again.
It's not the money. It is the fact that HE is the only one that Ford gave access to these records and when someone asks him and pays him for specific info, he should provide it. I waited 26 days for a report that was only supposed to take 10-14 and I still don't have the info I wanted or asked for.

Plus you scored like no other, for now focus on getting the parts needed to restore it n on occasion keep looking for info on it. Either way you got a rare car and kevin marti proved that just that much more.


thanks

Well, getting ready to put it in ebay later tonight so it will at least be interesting to see what it brings in a no reserve auction.

Already too high at $6600 :) Hard to believe that is more than a parts car sadly.

If Spitzer is bidding on it for a display car it could go 12,000 or even more.

it is already at $8100 :shock:

some people have money just to throw away.

If Don Rush, (someone who should know) thinks it is a $200,000 car, where is the restoration cost break off point? If you look at it from merely just a parts car standpoint, it has about a $6,000 engine, a $2,500 tranny and bellhousing, clutch pedals, Zbar and clutch fork. About a $1,500 rear axle and a $2,000 hood scoop. That doesn't count anything else. Well, I listed it at no reserve so we are all going to get to see what it is worth in the real World one way or another.

Personally I think $200K is a stretch for one without the original drive train and the extensive sheet metal work it's going to need. Still a great car that I'd love to own. Unfortunately I have a severe rust allergy.
