It will sell Alan to an educated buyer as the suspension alone is a cut above and will provide better handling.
I agree.....but this buyer is not found on BaT. BaT is filled with emotional buyers, not necessarily knowledgeable buyers. Case in point, Teby's car. That car seemed to have all the BaT buyer's boxes checked, except a few: it's not a VMC, it's white and it didn't have photos of the car at the coast or at sunset.
Below are photos of all the cars that sold on BaT in the past year that fetched $60,000 or over; except one car which seemed to be a high-water mark for a VS. My takeaway from this research?
1. Only sell a VMC on BaT. Greg has built himself a great reputation that's well known across the US. The average buyer doesn't seem to be aware of Carey and Henry's reputation, as not many Beck/SE and Intermeccanica cars sell on BaT. And forget it if you have a CMC or Fiberfab.
2. If you don't have a VMC, install some black wheels and spring $1,000 for an amazing photographer to shoot your car.
3. Stay away from colorful cars and white.
4/8/22: VMC $61,000
5/18/22: VS $60,000 [NOTE: Black wheels]
7/25/22: VS $55,000; I included this one because it's pretty high for a VS. And it has black wheels

9/12/22: VMC $67,000
9/19/22: VMC $67,000
9/24/22: JPS $62,500. The big money seemed to come out in September. This JPS seemed to have instead in a photographer.
