Strange Messerschmitt for sale
« on: May 12, 2012, 06:25:09 PM »
What on earth have they done to this one? Is it 175 or 200?  The usual opportunist price!

Odd cars, presumably home-made bodywork to replaced badly rusted original bodywork.

This car would appear to be fitted with some sort of scooter engine. It needs a lot of work to return it to original, and frankly, I doubt a KR200 in that state would collect the asking price. There are about 4 really poor KR175 floating about for unrealistic prices which is annoying as I would like another incomplete car to make my project whole.

I actually quite like that 175 Bob posted. Its ahsame its that expensive, and that bad condition. My dad has started with worse as a restoration, but of course for a 175 you need custom built panels.

I love then "fins" on the rear. If I had that car, I would keep them on!

I have created worse restoration projects than this but I valued them to sell to avoid doing them myself! To much effort.

There is a choice but generally you cannot have both margins available from one project without doing the work.
