That seems like a LOT of money for a rusty Catalina Moke, unless there's some historical value to being one of those cars?

Try about 1/20 the asking price as that one is good for only the title & VIN - needs a complete new shell, has no subframes, no interior bits of any kind, no electrical, no tank, etc. - too much missing to list.

I watched the youTube linked in the facebook post and it is basically the rotten shell, the old bumpers, a very questionable steering rack, and possibly a defunct 850 engine good as a boat anchor.

I sold a Moke body like that for $200 back in the 90s.  I know we have incredible inflation right now, but $10K is crazy.

The last 2 mokes that I stripped to a bare body I gave away. I didn't want to hear any bitching about they overpaid. Of course they didn't have vins either.

Reminiscent of the Mopar craze of the early 2000ís where people were asking 50k for a similar cuss shell because the vin said at production it had a hemi. 

Think it happened 3-4 years ago with broncos.  Some place in Cali was buying anything with a vin for 20k cause they were redoing them and selling for well over 100k. 
I am the GR8KORNHOLIO! Are you threatening me?

SO many interesting cars and other things for sale on BaT today!

This cool little Italian minibike...   https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1970-fantic-broncco-tx7-2/

This bare bones, 29K mile, bottom of the line Corvair with a three speed manual gearbox! I thought they were all 4 speeds, I guess when you're buying the el cheepo version you only got three  https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1969-chevrolet-corvair-3/

This incredibly stylish moped!  https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1961-victoria-spoetnik-50cc/

This really cool 1946 ERCO   https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1946-ercoupe-415/

2 huge HMMV's, one on the east coast and one on the west

This gorgeous looking old (new) Indian Chief  https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2020-indian-chief-vintage/

An old McCormack Farmall Cub, and THIS - Kurt Bilinski's Midlana. 538 hp mid mounted Honda engine in a custom built state of the art chassis, total weight with driver about 1650lbs! Plus, if you want to build one for yourself, for $100 you can buy the book that details every step, every weld, every nut and bolt and all the design and engineering drawings so you can DIY a copy! I followed this build for years as I first found him when I saw his previous build, another Honda powered mid-engined car called Kimini, built with a carbon fiber classic Mini body.
