Hello folks, I live in Madison, WI and we are selling my dad's Q2 kit. It was purchased in 1980. It is still in the boxes, we have packing list, and all correspondence, instructions, etc. I need a reasonable estimate on what I can ask for as far as selling it. Again it is Q2 kit in boxes, modified Volkswagen engine, no work has been done on it. Thanks for the help!

It is a pretty thin market for those, I think.  You might check here  http://www.quickheads.com/index.php?option=com_adsmanager&view=list&catid=2&Itemid=352  and look through the asking prices in this thread.  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/

Offhand I would say you'd be lucky to get 1/3rd to 1/2 of what your Dad paid for the materials but that's just a non-informed guess.

Thanks, I've gone to the quickheads web site previously it won't let me access the information. I try to join their organization but I end up in a catch 22 and can't join. I will check the canard zone forum, thanks.

Hi Dan, I'll get you setup on www.quickheads.com for this, but in the meantime you can post your item for sale in the For Sale section here.

The VW engine may not be worth anything to some potential buyers, but worthwhile for others, so consider allowing that to be a separate purchase.  The engine shop is still in business and that engine block can be upgraded to use some of their latest parts:  http://revmasteraviation.com/

The foam may not be worth shipping, and replacement foam can easily be acquired from Aircraft Spruce or Wicks Aircraft.

A pristine unstarted kit that is still in boxes is rare, so you should get a premium.  Putting a thumb in the wind I'd suggest a few thousand dollars.  I have an unstarted kit as well and that's about what I am looking for.
