    I should qualify, got excited seeing a survivor of one of those. Very cool! Could be worth every penny to buy and restore. I've seen the early letter series for sale in the +$100k area but, these are asking prices, would need to see actual sale prices.

    20k for car, 20k for rebuild of motor, trans, brakes, tires and exhaust, 12k for new top, interior and carpet, 5k for surprises plus shipping=approx $60000 as another member here whom has one stated they are a money pit and at this price point you may never sell it for anything close.

    I saw a 57 D500 convertible a few years ago at Run for the Sun in Myrtle beach
    It was gorgeous
    Asked the owner who was quite aged the kind of coin involved

    his reply, once he got me out of his wife’s hearing range was $135,000usd

    Car needs white-wall tires, and I don't mean wide whites.

    Now that is a cool car. I can see it for going for quite a bit more than $20k.

    Sign me up if you can find one of these cars done for $60k.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Bid at 25 grand right now. Any bets that that will be no where close - if there's a reserve?

    The original post was in regards to the 300C, then another member posted another auction concerning a 300D.
