I posted in general forum, and was advised I should cross post here.   My father was going to restore this, but passed with cancer over a year ago.  I DID NOT want to part with this car, but we are forced too.  It has been painted, new suspension, leaf springs, wiring, tires and dash completely restored.   All of the original parts are with it (including seats) plus a lot of extras.  We have 3 engine blocks, 3 transmissions, 2 oil pans.   Not sure why so many duplicate parts, but they are there.  

 

We are located in Edmond, OK and the car needs to be gone ASAP.  My mother has sold the homestead and is moving to a small home without garage space, no place for this gorgeous car to go.  Could someone suggest where I could try to sell it or what the value is?   Thank you in advance for any input!!!   Can post more pictures as needed.  Just snapped these quickly.

I don't know the value of the car that you are trying to sell, but here is a link to a restored coupe that sold at auction last year.

Because your car needs to be assembled and you need a quick sale, it may be worth much less. I would try to find a member of the LZOC that lives near you, to inspect the car and give you an opinion of its current value. You might also consider paying someone to finish putting the car together and then selling it.

Thank you!  The car is gone, but we still have the transmissions and engine blocks as well as other "extra" parts.  Are those worth listing?

 

Feel free to email me directly: c1nicolei@yahoo.com

 

Thank you again.

Thank you for sharing that.  The problem is my mother is moving and there is nowhere for the car to go.  My Dad's shop was full of things that we now have to part with.  :o(  He had the experience to restore, we do not. I am guessing paying someone to complete the resto would not be cost effective based on the $$ that the above car brought at Scottsdale, unless we did much of the work ourselves. Hopefully the person that has the car, will do well by it.
