Agreed. A one-off example with a high dollar powertrain and all the fixin's that a particular buyer paid a certain price for to get what he wanted will not be an accurate estimator of the brand's value in the marketplace.

That would be like accepting Tin Man's +/- $125000.00 Superformance as an indicator that SPF's are worth what you'd pay for a good Kirkham or Shelby.

Looking at the Shamrock's non-original shape, details and wheelbase; as a brand it will never be worth the same as a "good" ERA in the Cobra replica marketplace.

To be clear I don't think that's what Chanmadd meant to imply. His qualifier: "but then any Cobra is worth what the buyer is willing to pay" , really is the absolute truth.
