Knowing what the seller was looking for off-market, I would think reserve has to start in the mid-high 50's. I do not think this sells in the 40's. He's into it for around $60k$45k and I hope i'm way off. I personally love the car but think the 2800 aspect will hurt the value in this case slightly. When investing in a car at this level, the model specifics start to come into play. If purchasing as a driver it's not as much of an issue IMHO. While I feel like I'm throwing stones in a glass house with this comment (considering what my cars look like at the moment) it does seems a bit crazy to go through a repaint of this quality and not pull the side markers or fill the auto emblem holes. Again, so minor as the car is excellent but it's those little things that can sometimes make the difference.
Can't take credit for that one...i think somebody touched on the holes but might not have made sense to everybody. early 2800cs had a different automatic badge that was placed on the rear panel below the 2800cs and thats why the holes are there. later cars placed the badge on the left side of the trunk lid.

Honestly I like this car so much that I thought you were being picky, but after seeing the pics I tend to agree. It's not like anyone is going back to an auto. It could have just been an oversight by the shop.
