Which one is the better of the two? The one that isn't going to crumble in your hands when you pick it up? Looks like scrap metal prices have gone up a bit Laughing

Like what? Aside from the wrong headliner and Brazilian rear bumper?


It also looks like the wrong front hood with a welded in badge area. Otherwise it seems like a reasonable price for what you get.

Yeah, made it into a 4-tab Smile But I generally agree, there's quite a bit of originality there for what I'd wish was more like $15K, then I'd roll in it. But that hood makes me want to see the front apron...as LP911 pointed out, it's got the wrong rear apron, so it's probably been smacked before, maybe even sandwiched.

Have prices on kabrios risen that much during the pandemic? What are decent completed examples going for these days?

^^er, that's not a twin solex carb engine as described (1200cc type 3?)...and note how the spark plug leads go through the fan shroud to create a nice hot spot...
the interior and frunk upholstery best left unsaid.
