Sorry no trades,please dont ask what the reserve is, bid til you hit it..that's how you find out.bid only if you are serious.I will not take less than the reserve.I know its worth more, and what it cost to bring it to life and if you know anything about restoring cars you should be able to look at it and know there is no way you could buy just the parts,let alone pay someone to do all of the work and have in it what my reserve price is.This is the last time I will list the car here,its too exspensive to list it here..its not free.Thanks and I hope you all understand.I am giving you my best and honest description of the car.So lets get to it....
