      It's a nice looking car, but 75K?? The license plate should read WTF987 rather than WYF987. Ridiculous.

        The "only" thing that might be used as price justification by the seller is the FIA paperwork, a requirement to run older vehicles in many of the sanctioned historic rallies.



        Cars with papers are sought by wealthy "gentleman racers" and can increase a cars value by half or similar.

        Still an insane price for what is likely a bitsa though..

            According to the E-bay description it IS the rare hatchback model. Makes it worth every penny.

              Good catch, Don. Must be the Deluxe model.

              Also, the photo of the underside tells me there may be $75,000 worth of undercoating on those sills and floor pans.

                I'd say those switch extenders have to be worth at least $5k on their own....
