Title: 6500 Montecarlo - a record?
Post by: lee69 on 07 January, 2008, 03:08:31 PM
I'm sure many of the regulars on here check eBay now and again (if only to dream...), so you may know about the Montecarlo that's not met its reserve, but still reached 6458 with 29 bids.  It's an 82 black Spider, one lady owner from new and 21,000 on the clock.  Is this a record for a Monte and an indictaion of a pick up in values - or just a fair price for what looks like a timewarp example?  The item number if you're curious and haven't seen it is 110210237318.

I notice that nobody's yet bit for the Dilamabda or the Clarkson Beta.

That does look like a great genuine car ... so maybe not surprising (but I'm no expert).

I'm not surprised at the JC Beta ... apart from the fame on one TV programme ... it's a wreck! What could you do with it ? Probably not able to drive it anywhere and you've got to get it over here. I could see it as a useful addition to a club stand perhaps (for a limited time). I don't think you'd get JC to come and get his piccy taken with it tho :)

that does look a cracking motor, but i wonder has this buyer set the reserve too high?? 6500 is alot of money!

I don't think that 6500 is too much for potentially the best Monte in the country, although I'd want to check it out if I was going to buy it.
