Insane dealers: WC56 for 57k EURO

Post by 12th Air Force »

Hello Folk's,

actually is a CC offered by an dealer in our Frankfurt Klassikstadt at mobile.de.
Nice condition, but insane pricetag (min. 27k above central European "street price"). :lol:

Maybe I'm going to see it tomorrow to make some photos.

Another car dealer that thinks that a film, in this case "FURY" dramatically raises values of world war 2 original military vehicles suddenly jump up in value by 100% or more. Perhaps whoever sold it to them, or traded them for another car, exaggerated the true value, claiming that "Since the film FURY prices of classic military vehicles have gone up sharply -honest!" and the dealer fell for it and now have to reclaim their money.

At times car dealers here in Stockholm get Willys MB/Ford GPW's or Dodge WC's as trade-ins and charge stupid money for them.

The price will go down drastically after being on the used car lot for a year or more.

This one from Canada is a beauty. Much too expensive but a very nice one.

This bunch of shit here in Germany is more than a joke... :mrgreen:

The Canadian one looks absolutely correct, I can't fault it, even the detailed images.

If there is anything I would have done differently - I'd have done all that work on a really early one instead of a really late one, just for that added bit of value / interest.

Hello Folk's,

I had lately a look at the CC, but it was parked behind a fence so it was only possible to see it from a distance.
As far as I could see it is nice but not perfect in it's details. Drilled holes for Antenna visible, but Antenna missing, Markings missing as well.
Here is a photo with the CC in the background. The Kuebelwagen ist pretty nice and 4sale at 79k Euros. Not a bargain but closer to reality than the CC pricetag...
Keep 'em Rolling,

Joakim

A VW82 for 79 K is a joke, too. A VW 166 Schwimmwagen will cost around 90-100 in this condition. But a Kübel is around 40-50K.
