1958 Messerschmitt KR200

 

Spotted in New Rochelle, New York is a 1958 Messerschmitt KR200 Microcar for $40,000 USD.  The seller has restored this 3 wheel micocar.  These cars always put a smile on people’s faces.  This one has gone through a full restoration but was modified to remove the plastic bubble top to look like a KR 201 roadster.   The seller states that projects cost 25,000 USD making his price very reasonable.   It runs and drives in forward and reverse but the seller admits the car is not perfect and is being sold in as-is condition.   He is open to trades of other microcars like the BMW Isetta.

1993 Porsche 964 RS

 

Spotted in San Jose is a 1993 Porsche 964 RS for $72,000 USD.  The seller just posted an hour ago!  Here is a rare white 964 RS America with a clean title.   It shows higher mileage of 81,000 original miles.  He has the some service records on hand and original window sticker.  The seller states he is open to offer but the asking price does not include original wheels or original front seats.   He does have the stock items in his possession so its something to be negotiated.   Joe (seller) says the front brakes squeak when hot but he will fix the issue with new rotors and pads.   This car has the Limited Slip Option as shown on the window sticker.  No mention of the radio option but I do see the radio in the dashboard.  It seems this car does not have the sunroof option or the AC option which is a good thing.

The 964 RS America is a limited edition model for the 1993 year although 84 were built in 1994.  The total production for the RS America was 701 examples.  These cars were lightened performance versions of the 964 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the original 1973 Carrera RS.
