What do you think this 3.6 conversion is worth?

This is an interesting car, but I thought the asking price was even more interesting. What do you all think a well-done 3.6/middle-year conversion is worth?

This car is owned by a guy that works at Speedware Motorsports. He actually built it for a well known computer guy (no not BG), who spared no expense. I believe that asking price is $57,500. See it here: http://adcache.collectorcartraderonline.com/10/6/4/63887864.htm

Great looking car, but I can't see it getting 57K, unless some other computer guy comes in and wants it.

Anyone thoughts?

It is a very nice "looking" car, at least what can be seen from the pictures as presented online. Unless there are a couple of gold bars in the boot this guy needs to adjust his price by about 30K.
57K is a joke. I see this all of the time, people think their cars are some kind of treasure, it's a hoot.

I think it looks good. To the right buyer it will work. Do the math.

I have done the math, 3 different times. I have done a couple of 3.6 conversions and one 3.8. When it comes to re-sale my friend a 3.6 is NOT a wise investment. You can buy a lot more car than this for $57k.

Spending 57K:
You can buy a sweet rolling chassis for 10K, put another 8k into the chassis/suspension and still have 39K for a tranny and powerplant!!! 40 grand will buy one incredible engine and transmission.

Funny - but I think I would have mentioned the 3.6 first in the ad...

He does mention it in the first ad, it's a small font/type.

Embs,
I said to the right buyer, I didn't say "smart" buyer.

For $57k I can buy this:

3.6 Turbo

and if I look around I might also be able to find a 993 TT with higher miles. This guy is on some serious crack...
