How are the Wombles?
These two snipped threads are of some amazement to me. They border on
the fact that these guys probably don't know they are born in terms
of good fortune. For comparative purposes, what would an equivalent
Condition 1 1980 Spitfire go for in the UK? On an exchange rate of
Quid 1 = US$1.65 this means these guys are talking about 2500
sterling. For that matter, a guideline price in quids or bucks for a
1968 Mk 3 1300 hard/soft top in rust free original white, overdrive
and a genuine 37000 miles would be of more than passing interest to
Lubenham suggested my GT6 Mk II (admittedly an oddball in rust free
original Valencia, black LEATHER, GENUINE walnut ex factory
instrument panel and 28,000miles) O/D on 2, 3, 4 with a 3.27 diff is
worth around 6500 quid or US$11,000.
As these two babies are now mothballed in another location in France
awaiting a return to UK, I think its time I jacked up the fire /
theft insurance cover while in store. Something tells me they are
currently rather undervalued.
