  1. I watched the video. Maybe it’s the sunlight but the interior seat tops/ door panels look faded out. And I’m looking from my phone but pics of the top going up looks to have daylight coming thru. If accurate, $115? Ouch
  2. That was kinda my thoughts although Im probably as far from that level as it gets. That said, if I ever dropped well over 6 figures in a restoration, I too wouldnt even consider drilling holes in a perfect restoration.
  3. So does that count against a guy in judging later since it’s “marring” the surface and not original ?
  4. I scrolled thru the pics of this car. So the car is finished beautifully and I assume stock since the seller says its ready for concour. Do guys really screw into the body an award badge? Tell me its double sided tape.
  5. I’ve got in stock left and right nos rocker mouldings. These are the second type for the F41 model that are one piece instead of a second piece for the front fenders. Minor shelf wear but still in very good condition. Asking $165 each side. Drop me a line direct to dead@mchsi.com if interested. Regards Pat
  6. Looked online and they want roughly 2.5x what it bid on ebay.
  7. Which model is it based on? I might have it. Pat McMillan Robinson IL dead@mchsi.com BTW that Olds looks just right in that wooden barn.
  8. I agree, 3-5 is realistic. Everything works.... um except one of the potentially most expensive systems to fix. At least the guy says it doesn't work. Kinda like, the motor doesnt turn... most likely just needs a little oil.
  9. I like the part of the detailed engine bay. Stevie Wonder job? Half asking price would be fair.
  10. Seems odd to not post a single interior photo. Car shows cc, pa, comfortron ac. Trunk liner is correct. Bend in grille can be straightened easy enough. Quick sale at 8Kish. 14K level would need a spotless interior as pretty much nothing is reproduced. I do see the optional headrests thru the window.
  11. Thats not Dubonnet. Its Auburn Bronze. Id like to see photos of what looks like a 75ish t top HO Cutlass in the backround.
  12. Worst case scenario. Ballpark estimate to rebuild a 48 v12? Is there a go to place that has engineered any improvements for these motors for reliability? Thanks
  13. Just asking but what’s expensive ballpark on a rebuild? Are ones being rebuilt say in the last 20 years being done with better materials or such to correct engineering issues to make them more bulletproof?
  14. Are there any weak spots to look for engine wise on the V12? Parts availability? Thanks
  15. I think it’s neat but not nearly 8K neat. A good friend in hs in 87 bought a K car new. Very similar and anemic. Great for delivering pizza. Not so good for picking up girls.
  16. 99% sure not Olds unless they already customized the interior. I vote Caddy too.
  17. I’m in if it happens! Done with eBay.
