WOW, Don't you wish you knew what the value of these cars would be before you got the great idea to modify a cheap  $12.00  car that is now worth $$600.00 in used condition.  I have seen boxed cars go above $1200.00 and higher.


Best Regards,

Don

I don't know Don... as a 12 year old boy I don't think I would have cared! Let's cut up that sucker and put some big slicks on there! 

 

Anyway, I later bought a boxed Lola - no, not to cut it up...

Don and Don,   think about how many  Cucs with the optional  colored bodies got cut up!    One worse than that, is how many MPC GTOs and Chargers got cut up!! 

 

Thing is you can fix that Lola with a K&B donor body, but you will end up with a patched and painted body.    Fine if you want an  example that you have $150-$200 invested in.   Not a lot of collector value, except for the chassis!

I`m sure if you give this Lola as is to Jean Michel Piot he makes something special.

It's very possible to restore that body, you will still have a restored and painted body.   That's OK with me and a lot of people.    Some purists want a mint original  car.

Martin if the guy took less money it would still show it sold for the asking price, I think.     Sometimes I'm real surprised at what junk sells for and then something that seems pretty good t me sells cheap!!

 

I agree about this auction, I don't hardly see $200 or so in that stuff.    I didn't see the chassis for the Lola which would have added a lot of value.

Good points Matt. I am also not sure if it still would show the 599 price?
