    How much would that cost to get back on the road do you think?
    Say remove rust never mind paint primer only, engine and hydraulics overhaul, maybe front and rear seats re-upholsted.

    More than you'd like to think, then some and add allowance for scope creep.

    At a rough guess, given its condition. If you can find someone to take it on. Anywhere from $50,000 -> $100,000.

    Its sitting with its belly on the ground. Given the rust in the panels, I wouldn't expect the hull to be much better off.

    Certainly not worth the asking price. But people have unrealistic ideas of value when they hear of excellent examples being sold for high prices.

    Also on the topic of most Dees now being advertised for prices between 40 and 50,000 dollars. Do they really sell them at those prices, or just withdraw them from sale and keep quiet, or just drop the prices drastically if a prospective buyer is found?

    I'm sure the really good ones change hands for far more ........................... Without even being advertised!

    A perfect DS for less money than a modern plastic shitbox .... Count me in
