Wow!! I'm sure the original purchase price was far less. He must have wanted it really bad.

It was actually projected to go for half that, But like you said, two guys just had to have it and it way over what it was worth... it went for $150K over what the owner was wishing to get. Guess who was one happy guy...

This is the reason that auction prices are not accurate prices. The whole idea is to get people in a state of I gotta have it & when you have more money than brains prices go ballistic.

Two different red 68 L88 both went for $450K this morning!  Shocked

And to think I had a 68 BB Vert long, long ago that I bought for $2,300.
