IML: '67 Convertible Restoration

Fellow Imperialists:
    Great points John.  I will only add that there is a very real  'stress factor' in owning/building a car such as a true #1 that is not to be underestimated, nor should the possibility of loss of return on your dollar(s) when you do your math [notwithstanding pride and ego] upon final completion [it WILL take twice as long as you figured, if you are lucky and I refuse to discuss the money angle]:
..........the above prices do not indicate what you will receive upon sale--the OIC does also track eBay Imperial sales and you can see what recent sales have been for your type--, but price received shall always be determined by how much a buyer is willing to pay, but surely both of the above sources can be used as some of the determining factors in computing whether or not pursuit of #1 for you is worth it .....
    Either and Any way, you've got a heck of a car!!!

The trouble with a #1 car is that if you try to enjoy it, like put the top down, and drive it somewhere, you end up with an expensive #2 quite soon.  If you don't have heated, probably air conditioned storage, and If you don't have an enclosed trailer and suitable tow vehicle, you can't take it anywhere--the bugs and rocks will destroy the car, and if you  dare put the top down, that puts wrinkles in it, which costs you points.  If you want a great car, make a #2, and then you can put the top down, toss a picnic basket in the trunk, take the wife, grandkids, and their dog and enjoy life like the car was originally designed to do.
