Thumbs up Whats it worth?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ferrari-25...item2a346dcc0a

It went for 2600 then got re-listed and went for 2800.

Now its on classified add for 3500?

What is everyones opinion on what these cars are worth?

Chris has an unfinished hardtop for sale for a customer also at 3500 unfinished.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1909796007...84.m1423.l2649

The only one I have seen sold is the white hardtop with the gold numbers on the side. and i think that went for about 7500.

Im almost finished mine and just wondering what it would be worth as I would sell it for the right price and maybe have a go at another 1!

Whatever anyone's willing to pay on the day - Traditionally kit cars only sell for the basic price of the kit! That said there always has been (and probably always will be) a huge range of quality (or lack of it!) on offer by way of finished car.
I think it's true to say the best ones rarely get put on the market as the owners/builders are happy with them and built them - all that sweat and swearing has it's own price.

They are worth what anyone is happy paying at the endof the day.
the relisted one is a bit weird , how many genuin no sales can you have unless there is a problem. the maths don't quite work either in his advert either he says tribute charged him 1750 to fit a convertable kit which is less work than a hardtop kit to fit and then the other advert has a hardtop kit fitted by chris and his gang for 950.
if I was looking for one of these I would say the hardtop looks like the better deal and if these cars are making anything over 5500 finished as it appears they are - then theres an erner in it for someone.

Hi, interesting thread as mines (hardtop) 'probably' up for sale in next month or two, I was offered 4300 by a dealer 'as is' 3 months ago but was happy to enjoy it at the time so politely declined.
Probably anything between 4-6k for a sale to end user based on kit sales experience though as said before, it really depends what anyone wants to pay and how much of a rush you are to sell (especially with kits)... just look at Totalheadturners and their prices, though much of his stock is well prepped and high quality finish.

As a dealer the have certain obligation to the customer (which Trading Standards or the Courts can enforce), and I'm sure lots of overheads. To compare with a private sale isn't realistic IMHO.

Hi Mitchelkitman
I agree and my comment was not intended to be critical of any dealer, purely a reference to the fact the market will pay the appropriate price for the right item in the right condition, if.... as a seller you are realistic about what you have for sale and recognise that this is a niche market where it may take longer to find the right buyer.

The dealer I referenced is knowledgeable, has been trading in the market a long time, understands his products and is successful at what he does.
As a buyer there is an amount of 'comfort' in buying a car (even at a premium) from a recognised trader with the protection that this affords, especially relevant with kit cars as experience shows they are not always as they seem on the shiny surface. I am of course not referring to my car which is underneath exactly as it seems on the shiny surface
