Are early Stingrays pulling in these kind of prices?

    I'm not sure if I stepped away from stingrays too long, but has the price gone up this much on them? Is a mint 63 lime stingray worth $6k (or anywhere near that)?

    Sure looks like a repaint to me with the later somewhat darker 1975 Lime paint and clear coat, not an early Flamboyant Lime shade. Fishing for fools?

    I saw one last summer at a flea market that I thought was in amazing condition with a stick shift. I think it was original except for maybe the tires. When I asked how much it was, the seller was asking $600, and I thought that was too much. (I really don't know enough to appraise them).

    I currently have a red one in worn condition that a friends father gave me to restore for his grandchild, I was originally just going to make it ride able again for him, and not pay attention to keeping it original, but when I told him I think it might be worth a little bit of money, he told me to take my time and try to sell it for him instead. I'm still missing a rear fender, a right side break lever, and the seat has a few tears. Since he is not in a rush, I haven't done much with it yet, and I'm hoping to do a little research and maybe find the original needed parts somewhere next summer.

    I saw this too and assumed just another seller dreaming of what's never going to happen. I don't even know if krates are selling for that much?
