pretty steep price for a machine that hasn't ran for "a decade or so"... If it was newly restored, we'd be talking. I would think a more reasonable asking price would be half that. Maybe 3k. I hope someone here can snag this at a reasonable price. I'd love to see it in the community!

I wouldn't be surprised if its already been snapped up, these are incredibly rare and sought after.I've heard of collectors in Europe paying almost twice that for an un-restored one!

They don't come up very often in the 1 group config. I know a collector who has paid well over 10k euro for an unrestored one.

My heart skipped a couple of beats (because I'll be in Seattle this week for my birthday and holiday shopping) and then I saw the price. Dang!

One of the coolest of the cool. I think it was Kitt who recently restored one? Anyway, cost is relative. The sellers know what they have, but it will probably sell fast.
