Engine is now installed and running fantastically with the new clutch...
110 is quite a bit for a light car like this.
Reserve is set a $2000

So...
I have a feeling that it isn't going to sell at least until spring- not surprising.

If anyone on here is interested in trading, I'd swap for a early or late coupe or a wagon. An FC would be nice but I doubt anyone has one who's interested. I don't have a preference of transmissions. Or an MG or Triumph. Or a diesel Mercedes or VW.

If I can't sell it or swap it, I'm just going to keep fixing little things to make it better for a future owner (or me!).

Also an early or late sedan is good by me.

$910 seems like a far cry from $3k.
Looks like the market has spoken.

Or basically, anything but that car. Or something else, but, maybe not. Or, possibly, but I don't think so. But it could be, but I'm not sure.

Maybe we should just swap cars now that mine's drivable again. I can't keep up with the flaking paint on mine.

Does $2800 catch anyone's attention?
I'm also willing to trade for FC parts!

Sold pending funds. I'm breaking even so I'm content.
Now to decide what to do next...
I'll have some extra parts for sale/free shortly.

Patience young Padawan.
Talk like that will get the vultures circling before you pick up a wrenchhot smiley
Put the trim back on, throw a carpet in it and make it look complete.
Drive it with the top down and put a for sale sign in it.
It's resale red, and warm weather's coming.

Unless you're strapped for the cash, it'll take you much longer to get your money parting it out than as long as you've had it for sale here.
Most likely you'd sell the drivetrain out of it, and be left with a carcass you'd be lucky to sell for what you think it's worth. (which is way less than someone will pay), "It's a Corvair thing"hot smiley
Or, drive it to the Ranch as use it to pay towards the camper van you've been lusting after.....

Having been around these cars a long time I can tell you that you will always have an easier time selling a car that looks stock (seats, trim, etc).
You might want to fix some of the issues with it such as making the interior look nice and replacing the door.
stuff like that goes a long way of enticing people and in the end you might even end up getting more money for it.

My fear with putting a carpet in it is the small amount of rust repair that needs to be done. To do the rust repair, I need to order a full set of floors and source a rear original convertible under-seat area (the PO just threw metal there).

James, I would suggest maybe a different approach. If you are building a concourse car, then maybe a perfect, new floor pan set MIGHT be necessary. But if it really is just a small amount of repair, and the structure underneath is sound, I would suggest you just repair them with the correct gauge steel and weld them up.

There's no great sin in repairing metal in the floors as long as it's done well. This car seems like it is destined to be more of a driver anyway, and you can do a good job without spending all that money and doing so much work.

Weld em up, seal/paint them, and put a carpet in there.

"Patience grasshopper". Your car will sell when the time is right. Or you can give it away. An issue we all have is location location. This is a great big country and moving stuff across this vast land makes many deals no longer deals.
