1970 SRL-311 on BaT (for sale by me)

Post by guyatou » Mon Dec 02, 2019 7:12 pm

I spent the summer and fall restoring this 1970 Roadster, and it went live on Bring a Trailer this afternoon. Thought I'd share it with the group. (I assume this is where it should go, rather than the For Sale thread.)

Let me know if you have any questions about the car, or things I did to it to get it back on the road. This isn't my baby (a 1968 SRL), but one I bought as a package deal with a bunch of parts with the intent to restore and offer it for sale.

Feel free to share with your friends!

I have it on my Bring a Trailer list... at first I thought you were selling yours, but I see its another car that you're selling.

Good luck to ya! The Roadsters are doing fairly well but I always feel that Convertibles need to be sold in spring, not winter.

I was hoping to have this one done in August, but it ran longer than I thought. And I lost a big contract a few weeks ago (my biggest client folded) so I couldn't wait to sell it. This one actually drives better than my car, and isn't rusty and beat up like mine. But I LOVE my car and can't part with it. HAHA

Cool little car. Good luck Michael - you never know with BAT! Maybe someone will really want to buy it for their SO for Christmas :-)

Cheers

I think we might be riding a wave on Datsun Roadster values right now, so while nice weather might make them more appealing to buy, now is the right time to sell. Good luck with the sale and I hope you are able to quickly replace the lost business.

James, for the right price I'd tie a giant bow to the top of it, just like in those Lexus commercials!

Mike and Spags -- I'm so happy to see our little cars finally getting much due attention outside of our community. When I started working on this one, I realized it was a diamond in the rough. I went overboard on new parts and services that I might not recoup, but I know it will be an awesome driver for someone. And this car NEEDS to be on the road.

To all: Feel free to drop a few comments on the auction at BaT either about your past dealings with me through here, or about Roadsters in general. I'm sure your comments would help set the stage for a great auction!
