    Default Is this a replica or genuine Chapron DS cabrio??

    Any experts out there want to hazard a guess whether this is a genuine or replica cabrio? in the ad it talks of doing a conversion so not sure if this means sedan to cabrio or not...you be the judge
    exterior door handles are 21 not 23 but it is listed as a 1973 build...the site advises the valuation as being
    $200,000 euro...it would want to be a good replica at that price

    Be fair - you do get two sets of keys.

    I would have thought 200,000 euros would buy a nice genuine cabrio or are prices going up?

    A rusty early XM/XP Falcon ute that needs restoration and another car to complete it goes for near $10,000.

    Simply the result of too much cheap money in the wrong hands washing about looking for an appreciating asset, until it stops appreciating. Blame (or thank?) Quantitative Easing ...
