Thanks Cruetoone,

Original Colour was yellow; in 1994 with the rebuild it was sprayed in Two Pack, and then in 1999 again where it has been garaged and driven to my dad's archery club once every couple of months

Hi List,

I am planning a Eureka build/restoration at the moment & considering what to pay for a car, whether in good condition or bad.

I am struggling a little bit to understand the sorts of values put on Eurekas on this list and in the classifieds?

I should firstly say that above all else I do not wish to cause offense. I am aware that this topic could cause ruffle some feathers. I have found this list to be a great resource & everyone on it to be very friendly and helpful, so please don't take this the wrong way.

The above car does look to be a good one, however I can't understand how $25,000 is a reasonable value?

Again, please don't take offense Cruetoone ( or anyone else ) as the sort of value you are stating does seem to fall in line with the other cars I have seen advertised.

I'm just trying to understand this for myself, so would be keen to hear your thoughts. If I am way off then am more than happy to be corrected.

To illustrate where I am coming from, here are a few 2nd hand performance/sports cars from carpoint, all below $15,000....

hey tom

i am not easily offended so don't worry about me i've got a Bon Jovi icon as my signature face for this forum an road runner as my sample photo's for instuctions on how to instruct guys an gals on how to post pictures here on the forum...

in all honesty you have a vast collection of prestigious cars as your guide an too compare them to a eureka differs from mine because i could compare them to muscle cars an that would not be coreect either.

in saying that a eureka has it's own pricelist somewhere on the web i'll post a link sometime soon an i think i saw it in a car magazine justcars or unique car just to name a couple ....
but at the end of the day a eureka is worth to a person who is selling it for the amount of time they put into it custom parts wheels interior engine...

would you believe me when i say a turn key drive away eureka straight off the factory floor would sell for 35 grand as one person claimed in a magazine article i read..

here are some other mighty fine eureka's to glimpse over an if you get a chance to meet them guys ask them how much it will cost to part with a pride an joy to own an drive ...
