Looks like that Garry VZ Guy was right in his last post about this car over at the PompousBoard.
Wilson was right too. $50K was not to be.
Maybe you guys busily claying and buffing out your SEC paint in your garages can knock off now. The market isn’t as strong as everyone thought.
I think it shows a very strong market. Despite all the hype, the car is just a very low mileage barn find. Poorly prepared for the sale as many have noted. From a bad headliner to no real restoration of rubber or hoses and other items which a collector will have to attend to. Add the $2000 BaT fee and transport and you have a $50k+ car. Despite all the butt hurt, I think the commentary was actually pretty gentle for a car with more than a few questions. I still can't believe the headliner wasn't fixed. That was like listing it with a flat tire.
