    that's nice. It is in fact a JF kit?  Did anyone else make them before JF? The trailer looks like tori current Cosmic Trailer but this one I have has clear parts and an opening rear hatch.

    Do you have a picture of what you're looking for?

    Thanks for playing devils advocate here, Pete.  Valid attempt at turning this into a negative thread. Let's not let that happen, because that was not my intent when I created this thread.
    Nobody is taking shots at this guy and no need to get defensive.  Good for him if it's worth that much to him.
    I was in deed curious to see if anyone else shared his point of view. I completely understand all of your explanations of every single POV you could think of.  I honestly didn't think of all those.  None the less, it seems you wouldn't be interested in buying this kit at the listed price either.
    Thanks to everyone for sharing your thoughts.  I always find these auctions curious and since I had never heard of the kit, I wanted to know what other builders/collectors thought.

    Not to mention that sometimes when they do sell for extreme prices, the exact same one is relisted immediately by the same seller for a higher price.  Smells fishy to me.

    Yeah I can see that.  The value is in the eye of the buyer, and hopefully, for them anyways, there at least one buyer out there willing to invest.  The crazy thing is that the buyers have not driven the price to this.  It's a Buy It Now!

    How rare is it really and what is it worth?
    The SMP/AMT 1911 Chevy kit. I saw a posting on eBay for it and although the seller is right that I had never heard of it, is any kit really worth over $1700. 
     
    Not trying to ruffle anyone's feathers, but curiosity has gotten the best of me.
     
    Thoughts?

    Thanks everyone. 
    Bill's right. They came from the 46 Chevy from Galaxie.
    I think they look at home on this custom wagon.

    Thanks everyone.
     
    And thank you, Tulio.  I know you  have a lot of information on a lot of these Fords.  I will look into fixing that. Was that part of the it that I missed or would foil on the edges work the same, you think?
