late model 88

hi all,

i cant believe i am asking for this...... =)
i need a later series 88.
light colors are better.
it has to be "pretty" / run great and be a "good car".

it is something that will actually be driven around not sitting in a garage.
thanks!

best way to get to me is email: keith at copley motorcars . com

Keith is most likely looking for a post 1968 Series IIA.

Early IIA have the headlamps on the breakfast

And, Late IIA have them on the wings.

Or a III

Later, why?

The real "Iconic" series trucks have the lights in the grill..

Whatever reason, plenty around at Copley #'s. Keith - take your pick!!?

Relax, Keith-- not everyone knows that your a dealer. Those that think your just an ordinary enthusiast may generally wonder why a late model-- I'd be curious as one day I may get a series, but I don't know which model.

Reading this post I didn't even get the impression someone was busting your balls until you mentioned it. It's friday...chill

Btw, I remember when you first joined--- those were some true ball busting days...been a decade almost. Nothing but respect for Copely-- I'll never be able to afford your cars, but Ya have some beautiful stuff on the lot...

thank you for the kind words chris. and the link craig.

the old days seemed to be better. horsey and barry going at it daily. the pre-neil drama and the neil drama days.

now all we talk about is this illegal truck / that illegal truck / this jerk / that jerk. it seems there are too many 1 time comers now and no more "depth" thats all.

ok i am done whining. thanks.

You probably...want to be more specific... Just saying... What is the ballpark budget? $1000 or $100000.... Does the buyer want it to be original or do they like a restomod? Huge range of possibilities....
