"Vic. I talked with
chuck today and he does have a nice "69, it is scheduled to auction between
11 and 12 a.m. and has a reserve of 29k Good Luck... The 70 Conv't that went
for $75,000 was fine...
He later added that it should have been $45,000 not $75,000, he typed it in wrong. That, plus the 8%= $48,600.
I've seen the white 69 428CJ Eliminator at the Western Nats in July and it is very nice. We might set a couple of Cougar records this weekend.
I about fell over to when I seen how much that Eleanor clone went for, I even kicked the ole' lady off the computer to check it out, and she think's I'm nut's for some of the stuff I do. Man I feel good now! Jon
i will say
180k is a wee bit to much for a clone but the funny thing is that carroll shelby will be putting them into a registry n that 1 that was sold was number 1. Amazing that it brought 180k where like royce said you can build 1 for 160k less
yeah i swa the Eleanor clone... ayyyyyyyyyyy......i guess that it is gonna be a special sort of car. being serial #1 and all, but i mean.. DAMN!!!! it brought in $40,000 more than the 427 Cobra before it! who'd have thunk it?
Sadly, I missed that "Elanor Clone" I was under the impression that it was a 67 GT500 E code signed by Carol himself (who was supposedly standing beside the car at the auction). I would've loved a chance to be there and see Shelby. Screw the cars, I wanna meet the MAN. I did catch Alice Cooper's 69 350 at $45000. That was cool.
Are you guys sure that it sold for only $180,000? I could have sworn that it went for $280,000. They are selling these cars at Sanderson Sale and Service, http://www.sandersonsales.com./ . The car that sold appears to be the same as the Performance Package GT500E. This car sells for $120,000 from Sanderson. Stereo options that were mentioned at the auction would bump the price up a little more. It's crazy what a man with money will do to impress a woman that could give a s t about him. Just goes to show you that money can't buy common sence.
I hear you Tim B. It is amazing how cougars are coming up though. It will be only a matter of time. I think with a little publicity, such as more magazine feature or TV show feature, cougars will climb in price dramaticaly. They have come up quickly the last few years.
