1966 A-H Looks like this would be a good starting point for someone.

Having done a '62 Sprite MK2 of my own, and all the metal work of a very rusty Midget MK 1for someone else I'd offer that there are much better starting points available.

Note that clear daylight can be seen through the area where the bottom 8" of the rear fenders and inner fender/trunk floor closing panels/gas tank should be.

A couple hundred bucks, tops.

"it's a basket job".

Hell of a selling technique.

$1,200!

Needs a new home, but not at that price. I can't see anyone paying much of anything at all for that. What are those wheels? They don't look all that original to me, but I can't really see them clearly and am not an expert.

I think the factory that produces the tetanus vaccine could use it as a rust incubator.

"Needs a new home." Translation: none of the local junkyards will take this off my hands. I'm not sure it would be worth it if the seller threw the trailer in, too.

Personally, if I had time and money, I'd consider it. For about the cost of scrap.$50- $150. One day I will have me a welder....

Looks pretty dire. $120 might be better as it looks to have already been someone's parts car.

Looks like a less than even $120 bucks. A lot of mess for the money asked. You can get a rust free running car for $3,000.

I sold my '72 and '78 which where both in much better shape then that for $200.

Looks like the guy fatfingered a 2 at the same time as pressing 1. Personally I wouldn't touch the thing for anything above 1/4 of what they want for it. Like Andy said, you can get a running car in good shape for not much more than that.
