Project trailer - 1956 bubble

We have decided to forgo restoring our 1956 16' Bubble. She is partially restored with a new floor. We need some help in determining selling price. Anyone out there who can help?

Check out: Price vs Condition

Being mid-restoration makes it a little tougher to evaluate, just be truthful of the real condition and document what you have with lots of pictures when you do go to sell it. You shouldn't have any troubles with this, a '56 Bubble is a pretty desirable model.

ha ha! what the hell, i was supposed to pass up a Bubble that's already been gutted FOR me???

I KNEW there was a reason my new truck tires didn't come in today. Otherwise I'd already be at Pecatonica.

Bad news is, now I have to steel myself to let go of the Bambi. No chickening out. Although, hmmm ... whiny b'friend doesn't know a Bambi from a Footer. Maybe I whip the '59 into the shape, stick that one on eBay & just TELL him I sold the Bambi ... He bitches no matter how many A/S's are in the driveway anyway. I think he's on his period.

So SummerKid, is it still for sale or not? I'm in the market for something just this size, so I might beat you to it. SuzQue, have you established a price yet?

Congratulations on your new Bubble! There aren't many around because they only made that model for 4 years...however, you can find more pictures in the Photo Archives. If you're going to be restoring it, you may want to start a new thread or blog to document it and post before, during and after pictures ~

Good luck with yours!

Shari
