Back again to annoy with questions, although this one has more substance behind it. What is the general consensus to the value of a complete (aside from bumpers), running, brakes done Touring?  No idea yet if it is a 2.5 or 2.8 or RHD/LHD, but am working on it. Needs sills and floorpans done. Body apparently not too bad, interior saveable but needs carpets.

Advice (probably of the stay away it will bankrupt you variety) appreciated.

I have some more info so would welcome opinion as value. It is a 1960 LHD Touring. Body pretty good, but needs floor and sills as said. Runs, stops. 2.8 triple carb.  All there aside from bumpers and will eventually need painted as bare just now.

What is it worth? Is 14k realistic in this condition? I hope not.

The price does not sound too far off the correct value. If the engine does not need a rebuild and the brakes are OK this will save thousands in rebuild costs. What is the interior like, again a retrim is costly but refurbishment much cheaper. I would say any restoration project Touring is going to need new sills, I have seen cars described as excellent that have patched sills.
Recently a 2.5 Touring convertible sold for 80,000euro!!!! so in the long run it might not be an expensive buy.  The restored value at the moment could be in the region of 35,000 so you just have to work out the costs to get it perfect.

In that case, to be able to buy it for 3500 or so would make sense!

I'm afraid "making sense " has precious little to do with owning most of the cars we like....

I do Brian! But am all too aware that the initial estimate of getting it up to scratch might as well be doubled as these things never stick to budget......
