It's in my hometown. If anyone wants to caugh up the dough, I can go take a look before you buy. BTW I've got a 62 Sunroof Coupe I'll let go for the same price. :shock:

That might be his price, people get crazy sometime.

I have been on the receiving end of some wacky prices. Guy says he doesn't know what he wants, make an offer. I hate doing that but sometimes you have to. I offer a reasonable price, he comes back and says he wants 5 times what I am offering. We both stare at the other in stunned silence...

I didn't ask what: "Sale limited,,," meant. Something I've got to learn.

Now to me, the only way that car might be worth $125K would be if it was parked in that garage in 65, has six thousand miles on the OD, and that's all original paint, interior, and comes with tool kit, literature, etc. Also started every week and driven around the block for the last fifty years. Even then, it'd be a stretch eh?

Must've misplaced a zero like has been suggested. Or it could be like Adam says,... I call it the "antiques road show" effect.
People see something on that show, and have one like it except it's crushed/repainted/badly repaired/different year, etc. Then they think theirs is worth all the money too.

Or, there's the good ole fashioned,...just plain nuts. :shock:

Steve,
How about it comes with the house and the garage? The seller just didn't get that in the description.

Steve-
The antiques roadshow of the Porsche world is Bruce Anderson, I don't know how many times I have had some guy with a 356 about to break into 2 pieces, or had been sitting in his yard since Carter was in office, tell me how much his car was worth, because of a Bruce Anderson report in Excellence. I would always tell them the same thing, Bruce didn't have a category for "rust heap in your front yard." But that Speedster with the rose bush growing out of it was still worth at least $80,000!

36 hours after original contact and he hasn't gotten back. Perhaps he's sobered up and decided to donate it to a local charity and deduct the $125K from this year's income taxes.
