    As of today, one bid of $2800.00, the high cost of rust these days, as Neil Young Said; Rust Never Sleeps. Keeping Neil’s lyrics in mind, a buyer may think his $2800.00 rusty investment will increase in value as the rust turns to dust.

    One day left. 4 bids, up to $3100. Could be worth it in parts… it would be a tough restoration.

    Sold! Looking up old watch list items on my eBay this morning, noticed this sold for $3850 on March 8, 2020! It’d be nice to hear from the buyer, especially if they are planning to restore rather than just part out.

    Hi. I bought this yesterday from a uk dealer. I can confirm it will by sympathetically restored, not split for parts. It’s a great original early VEP with tons of f stamped parts. V pleased with it. But daunted by the challenge ahead. Oh and I paid way more for it…shipping and dealer profit to be takin into account. I’d love more history on it if anyone has any. Cheers.
