The same seller has an unbuilt Heathkit RT-1 Hero Jr. starting at $2k

Given that H8s seem to sell for at least $300 in built, used condition
(sometimes without manuals), the initial bid seems reasonable.
However, if I bought it, I don't know if I'd build it as the museum /
collectable value would be destroyed by that, which is mostly what
you're paying for.

I understand the value in building your own computer, but if you want
that value then I'd recommend buying an Apple 1 replica kit or
something like that.
