Computer on this car is located in the trunk, using a Detail Zone panel.
With the exception of the Speedo the instruments are VDO in slightly enlarged stock openings. The stock speedo is is operated by using an Abbott Xbox that converts the electronic signal to mechanical.

Offers anyone??? It is just an asking price. I'm serious about selling and won't be insulted by any reasonable offer. I'm only twenty minutes from the Albany NY airport if anyone wants to look

Anyone buying this is NOT going to "redo" it . I will take ALL the 50K restos like this you can send my way.

If you donít like the price or item being offered in for sale thread, take it to e-mail or PMs. Better still, just move on to a thread that is offering something you like the price on.

If you post a criticism of the price or the quality of the item being offered, you will be in violation of Forum rules and subject to sanctions.

You clearly are completely unfamiliar with the C1-C2 restomod market.

Or the regular C1-C2 market for that matter.

The criticisms of the price of this car as well as the back and forth arguments about the market and personal stuff is over.

If you would like to start a completely separate thread to argue about prices in general, the market, restomods or anything else that suits you, please feel free.

However, further distractions from the OP selling his car will result in people having more time to enjoy this fine weather away from their computers.

There is no such thing as a $50k resto, I know because I bought one. By the time the car is finished properly, it will be north of $100k. Take any resto and compare it with a parts catalog, and you will quickly see why they cost what they do.

This is a really beautiful piece of C1 art, good luck with the sale!
