Yes, a show truck could be worth 28K or close either direction.

they have a yearly get together tour with T's every year (probably more than one). They went thru my area a few years ago. 100's of them involved. It was neat seeing ones that were in original condition, other than mechanically of course. Show cars are nice and beautiful but would do me little good as I use my old vehicles and they would get scratched up anyway. Im sure they do tours with the A's too, probably more of them.

the trend today with barn find A's&i think all older cars is to concentrate on all the mechanicals&leave the body as is.cost of decent paint job is $4,000.00+++ being main reason. still don't believe the trk on this thread went for $28,000. have seen overpriced A's on e-bay& craigslist that have been posted off&on for years. tom

those are sometimes called patina cars and I love them! Kinda like the old cars in Cuba, held together with wire and screws. Much better than having a mint car that runs like crap, in my opinion.

Ebays great if you look at the sold prices and not asking prices, but someone may win and never pay, or the seller had someone bid high to try to make it look more valuable when they relist it. Many sales there are honest too. If you cant go look at it don't bid. We've all heard the horror stories.
