I encourage personal and or professional inspection before bidding. I will accommodate reasonable inspections by elevating the car on stands or ramps. I have attempted to be as accurate as possible in describing the car. Not to be rude, this car could not be built as it sits for under $75,000 including reasonable labor costs. Need to see car to understand fabrication quality, detail, and quality parts. I have detailed parts inventory and photos of buildup. Appraised at $70,000, understand it is difficult to get appraisal values on these unique vehicles and for insurance reasons.. Approximately 500 miles on car. Not raced. Nitrous has not been used.

Starting bid is very reasonable for this vehicle. It’s not an outrageous show car reserve price.
