I’m making a truck in 1951 and I’m self conscious about the price of it. The 2,5 litre Inline 6 makes 75 HP and I chose the cheapest stuff that was acceptable (Simple 2-barrel, short cast, and pushrod).
Is 9,400 $ a good price or do I have to make it really shitty (basic interior and negative sliders)?
Edit: The car has aluminium panels, if I switch to steel the price goes down to 8,300 but the rest of the car gets worse of course.
Ultimately, price only matters in the market demographics you’re aiming for rather than the actual numbers. Budget categories will always be low as those are the people who also look at used cars. If you get over 100 with markup in your target market(s) then it’s good, regardless of the affordability on it. If it’s too expensive, it won’t be very desirable.
