Another '64 was sold at silent auction locally. It was all there but in boxes. Someone had started a resto and stopped. I had already restored 2 of them and knew it was complete, etc...The winning bidder got it for $10k. Bolted some of the pieces back together and flipped it on ebay for $30k. I mean he did hardly any work to it. Just put bumpers back on it, seats in it, etc..
If I were fortunate enough to get into a "boxes and bins" C2 for 10K there's no way I would let it go. I would build it and love it forever.
