Anyone know anything about this car?
#11
I think what happened at the show was that Sat there were a couple of nice expensive collections that were selling in addition to two Richard Petty cars. Petty was also there on Sat and talked about the two cars he raced in.

People probably decided that if they were going to go, Sat would be the more worthwhile day so, noone was really there Thurs and Fri to bid on the cars. Bad for the sellers, especially if no reserve.

Sorry to hear you missed out on that car and the low price. Can you contact the Mecum buyer? Maybe he would sell it even if it was a few thousand more than the 20K he paid, it still might be worthwhile.

That makes sense Steve, and it's a great idea to contact the buyer. Does anyone have any idea how to do that? I doubt Mecum would disclose the information.

Kevin- You sold one with a very similar appearance not too long ago if I remember correctly. I also watch replays of the various auctions at night, and get pissed at myself when I see some of the prices on interesting no reserve cars. lol Unless this one had serious drivetrain issues or a major undisclosed accident repair (both of which I doubt), $20,900 seems like a steal.

I saw that car in person and thought it wasn't worth near 20k mods were cheesy paint was terrible up close imho id pay no more than 10 for that thing only because it was an m code. I also saw the blue mach 1 72 I think someone put a 429 in it had no options really had orange peel all over and it went for 33k makes me wanna take my car there and see if it gets 50k......

Hi Reckless. I just saw this post. Yes, this is the same car! Somehow I missed all this correspondence back in 2014 on the 7173Mustangs site. Mark White was the guy who posted the car on Ebay. I only came to be involved with the car after it was already on Ebay. I would think the buyer will eventually make his way to this site if he hasn't already. Thanks for sending this. Kevin.

Hi Don! I just saw your reply. The car I sold recently was different in that it was a 1972 Bright Lime H code 2V car. This car was a71 Grabber Lime M code 4V car with what sounded like a very interesting history. Thanks for your sympathy regarding the no reserve auctions! Kevin.

Wow. Thanks for the reply. That makes me feel a lot better about missing out on the car. All I saw were some pictures in the ad years ago, and you know what they say about a picture.....(it tells a thousand words, and they're all...well, you get the idea)!
