(repost/edit) Long story short, current Colnago C60 maybe in for warranty/paint repair

Opportunity to get that 2nd bike, have a spare full Chorus groupset and Zonda wheels, bar and stem lying around.

Which would you choose:
List in order of asking price, cheapest is Factor around $1800, most expensive is C64 $2800

-Factor O2 size 52, red black, frame only

-V2R Red size 48S frame only
-C59 limited edition white WHOLE BIKE. Reynold wheels, old Super Record groupset (50/34), size 45S (sat in storage for years, even white bar tape is deep yellow)
-C64 blue frame only with DA 9100 brakes only, size 48S (light scratch on chainstay)
No other used bikes in my size at the moment (Canyon, TCRs, tarmacs)

any experience with the above?
There is very little ww info on the Factor

I have several colnagos in 48 sloping (C59, V2r, C60). I am 5’6” and have been told this is my correct size! However, I recently bought a cervelo r5ca in size 48. The geometry is almost identical to a 45 sloping Colnago. I really like the smaller frame. I am using a longer stem, longer seat post and for some reason I seem to like the overal fit better than my standard colnago 48s. My next bike will be a Colnago C64 in size 45 sloping.

I’ve never had a C64 so can’t comment but I owned a C60 and C59. I bought the C60 first then got the C59 and for me the C59 was too similar to the C60 so I sold it. I assume the C64 won’t be massively different to the C60. If it was me I’d buy the C64 sell the C60 and then go for an older Colnago C40 or C50.
