I don’t really get that strategy of going from 18k to 45k. Your kinda betting against yourself

This one was for sale by Vintage Cruisers a few years ago for $59,000. Must be where the present owner purchased it from. Originally a $100,000 + restoration by Jonathan Ward.

I figure the price is at the sellers reserve or close as set by a close acquaintance to the seller. Most TLC resto's are >100K and look incredible. I had hoped it would have been little lower but knew it was going to go higher and I will be seriously surprised if it doesn't go at least in the $60,000 range if it hasn't already.

Hmmm what do you guys think it's worth today?

Having a hard time wrapping my head around it. On the pro side, $100k TLC work, market is hot, and this may be the best iron pig out there. Con: resto was in 1997, it's got some leaks now, and wasn't meaningfully upgraded (like Deo's FJ55 on an FZJ80 drivetrain).

Worth every penny of $55k, probably more, to someone wanting an OEM restoration. Leaks an easy fix. Body and trim much harder IF you can source the parts.

I agree with it being worth $55K, Jonathan Wards work doesn't command top dollar due to shoddy results.

I would love to have this but little rich for me and I don't want to unload anything to buy it.
