His other ads are spot on, but he's on drugs if he thinks he can sell that POS for anywhere near that price. Rolling Eyes

Branfreshfinds... he sells on Ebay also.. sometimes his prices make sense.. sometimes.. it appear he has been smoking rock for a week before he posts his ads. Not sure which it is.. or could be both. I could have picked up a set of these at the Copperstate that were in excellemt restored condition for 450.00 .... but I dont have the car to put em on.

That is a nice looking unit. Nicely preserved, original and complete.
Now, if the asking price was around 1/3 what it is, it would be much closer to reality.

There was a car like that in Phoenix recently. A bit worse condition but ran and drove. It was around $3000.

I tend to think in Canadian dollars and Canadian prices. Up here, an asking price of $5K would be a bit high, but not laughable (like $15K)
And yes, 56's and 57's have the dubious distinction of being the over supplied fat chicks of the oval world Embarassed

There's only one thing rare about that Magneto...the price Exclamation Rolling Eyes

Edit: The ironic thing about the description, "Impossible to find NOS" is that in the same week there have appeared 2 other NOS Magnetos in infinately better condition. They also have reasonable starting prices and have attracted a healthy number of bids.

So much for the 2 minute research job on deciding a start price. Confused
