It was more common for the Carrera's to have steel/alloy wheels, much much lighter.

And how much would it cost to finish a set of wheels at this price? That isnít even a complete wheel. Iíd think for a complete set of wheels to be worth 200k or better, the car they go on needs to be a huge multiple of 1 mil. Itís still utterly ridiculous to me, even if the car they belong to sells for 1 mil.

Wrong era (and make), but same price point, so the comparison canít be that far off. Hereís a brand new OEM set of F40 wheels, the seller is asking 21.5k.

^^^ I'm obviously not as familiar with buying a 20k used car, which I already admitted to. I don't collect them, I don't look for them, I don't buy them.

Compared with the function over form bug the 356 is derived from, it's as if someone blew some air into the body panels.

As Raw pointed out, what's the deal with the goofy overhang ?

I have no idea on what the market is for a nice set of a 58 Carrera GT Rudge wheels. I don't think a spare set even exists. Adam? I do know they only built 151 total 58 Carrera GT's and not all of them had Rudge wheels. They built 2000 or so F40s. Ferrari also probably produced some extra rims. 50s car vs 90s car is completely different.

Anyhow, rare Porsche parts/memorabilia is fetching big bucks these days. All this is way out of my league, but I'm a fan.

It's even further out of my league, but I'm definitely not a fan.

Perfect example of one Mans trash is another mans treasure.
I couldnít care less about an owners manual for a car I donít own. I hope the winner owns that car.

The most expensive set I've heard about recently was a set Wilhoit had restored, sold for $75,000. They average about $50,000 a set, but there have been a couple of sets that were in the 30's, but probably needed some work. I have over $25,000 in my set.
