well CM, you do have a very valid point. once you've seen one, you've seen em all...not many options.. But, when somebody says the words, 300 Hurst, you know right what they talkin about....Its a bad mutha....shut yo mouth.....
Typical C-body buyers. :shruggy:
However the owner of one such car in Austria seems to go through some rather big efforts as far as I've heard.
Besides the money involved, I never found it desirable to do a car "from scratch" , I'm interested in a rather unaltered good condition that shows to what standards factory production was done. If you try to duplicate that to the degree the Hurst arrived at the dealership you're in for more than one WTF-moment if you show it.
Always stuck to the saying : If it ain*t broke, don't fix it. But if you fix it fix it right.
I hear you. Just doesn't catch on with the serious collector crowd who could afford this, which makes it even harder as there's no market for resto parts. There is no real interest in Full Size Supercars after the youth market shifted to intermediate muscle cars. What do 427/454 Full Size Chevrolets fetch ? Maybe a bit better but I think even they are of minor interst.
there have been a couple of SFGTs which fetched good money.
There was a blue SFGT v-code which sold for six figures back in 2006. It was running&driving but far from perfect. It currently gets a nut and bolt resto
It is difficult.
There are some guys who have more numbers but it seems like they keep them quiet.
If it comes down to v-codes I know of 11 or 12 cars.
Don't have a certain number on the t-code 440 cars but I would say roughly around 50-70 are out there including a huge amount of basket cases
