Nice Butterscotch A12 RR. Beautiful car but on the high side for sure.

A guy in the Lexington area owns it, I’ve seen it several times and it’s a beautiful car but I don’t know the owner. I believe it was restored in Tn Car was found in Nicholasville near the NAPA store if I remember correctly.

I don't see anywhere near that much money. And he could have put some better pics up.

I assume numbers matching engine and tranny? Might be about the best an A12 can get, except maybe color. Money above 100k though.....I don’t know. The A12 market isn’t what it used to be.

That is G. G.'s car out of Warsaw, KY. It is a very nice car and has been for sale for several years. I have heard conflicting reports about the engine being original.

I agree nice car, but that ship has sailed on A12's in my opinion.

I’m not sure I agree that the a12 cars are done. I have several unrestored cars that I consider rust free and complete, but still project cars. They are basically cars stored in a dry indoor building just like they would have been found in the 70s and early 80s. I have a constant group of people that keep up with me to ask if I have decided to sell any cars yet. I have more people wanting my A12 Bee than any other car.

fastmark- I think the general interest is still pretty strong but as the audience for them ages and the flippers see that market shrinking I believe the prices for full boogie restored cars is falling- and not just on A12's. That said, project cars feel overvalued to me in general.

I think projects cars are often bought by those who want to jump in into owning a "rare" car. They can't afford a nice driver or done car.
There are way more people out there being able to spent 20k instaed of 75k. Even though financially it doesn't make sense considering the money which needs to be spent in total.

Year ago those that bought projects were willing and able to perform a lot of restorationwork by themselfs.
Today I feel more people give the work out to shops. Maybe due to age ?

It's easier to take some bonehead criticizing your car when you didn't do the work because you can turn it into a criticism of the shop that did.

The few project cars I sold, have all been to guys younger than me. Some much younger. They have more time and energy than I do anymore. The big problem is with America in general. You have a few kids with older values. They studied and have a good job, don’t spend all day on a computer playing games, and still have hobbies they enjoy. Unfortunately, they are in the minority. Too many kids studied something in college that left them with a worthless degree,. It was taught by tenured professors that fill their heads full of BS. They think they are entitled to the job they want and won’t do anything but complain about their student loans. They won’t do a trade that requires using their hands. Most aren’t that smart to know how to work. Thankfully, there is not a lot of mopar cars to flood the market.

Either that, or you're POd because the pool of people you can sell to is drying up.

It was very nice when I saw it at a show many years ago. Probably still is.


Forever in debt to your priceless advice...

Well I think if they are good cars and they will still bring good money. Just not like the "Happy Days" when they were routinely bringing 125K-135K.
I really like A12's and miss my Road Runner to this day.

Nice looking A12. I remember reading a story that Rick Ehrenburg at Mopar Action wrote about years ago. IIRC he wrote about A12 cars, and how he wanted to buy a brand new one pretty much exactly like this one in this thread. Well Rick, here is your chance. work

A guy on facebook had an A12 project for sale for $30k, roller ,wanted extra for drivetrain. Wander what happened to that one ?? Like i tell younger guys, money is cheap right now, take out a loan and buy a done car you like., make your little mods if needed. Drive it and make a payment each month. Otherwise you think your saving money doing it yourself, but life seems to win before the project does... Kids, marriage, house etc. Next thing you know its rolling out the driveway on another mans trailer. Been there, done that and have a drawer full of T- shirts to prove it...

what gets me is the ones you see go through mecum and bring say 60-65k and a dealer buys them and post them up for 109,000. I emailed a place that had one they bought at Mecum Indy for 66k, asking 109,000. I asked if it was the same car. They said yes and what was I getting at, I was like just curious if that was it. They informed me they already had a deposit on it.

Id like to have a driver quality one to actually race at our local drag strip, but not sure what ill find WHEN I get my demon sold.

I agree kids are much different today but to dog them because they have no interest in a 50 year old slow unsafe car is a bit of a stretch. Alot of the youth are into cars just not our old junk, why would they?
