Peel P50 for sale

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

“Peel P50 for sale”

That is the top search term that keeps showing up day after day after day in the logs.
OK, well now you found something didn’t you?
Seriously people, do you think that current owners are just tired of them and looking to get rid of them?
If and when they sell, they sell privately.  And there is generally a broker involved. And there is also a good deal of time and effort invested in the deal.

After the P50 appeared on Top Gear there were gobs of people trying to find one to buy with such requests as
“I don’t need a restored one”, or “It doesn’t have to run, that’s OK”
and then people were astounded to find that there were not several to choose from for under $1000.
After all, they are small, so why would they possibly cost any money?

Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museums bought a replica from Andy Carter in the UK and apparently liked the attention that a REPLICA created that they started making their own copies for all the branches of their “Museums”.  Of course much of the stuff in them is replicas to begin with so it sort of makes sense for that venue.

So. For those of you that have landed here looking for a Peel P50 for sale, what do you think is a fair price for a Peel P50?
And why should someone sell their P50 to YOU?  Are you worthy?

update June 23 2010: Oh Look!  There is one being sold HERE by a Dealer on German eBay Right Now!

Vintage Microcar Endurance/Race – June 2010

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Microcar endurance/race in June.

Start from Bruce Weiner Museum in Madison Ga and travel south toward Fl. 24 hour event for microcars of less than 500cc and made before 1965. We will pick out a spot to drive to and back in one 24 hour period. I think we could probably drive about 900 miles. All miles will be on back roads and no Interstates used.

No pushing, hauling or pulling of the microcar during that 24 hours. You can have as many drivers as you want and also as many mechanics as you want. But the car must be driven. Chase vehicle is allowed to haul other drivers and supplies. You will be responsible for your own car.

Event will be open to everyone that has a car of less than 500cc and made before 1965. Car must have original type engine. That means you can have non matching serial numbers but it was the type and size engine that was originally in car.

For more info contact Larry Newberry  865 300-3599
or email Microcarlot@hotmail.com

Exact date and time to be announced at a later date.
