I saw those go across the block; I was surprised the Blue Mach one went for more than the other two; although it was sharp looking. Beat out a Boss 351 and a 429!

Prices are really going up on these then. Maybe I might just hang on to mine longer than planned after the restoration.

I agree with you. Dragon Lady and I was there. The 429 Mach had 28 additional factory options! Two pages for the invoice! I think that the Blue and the Grabber Green metallic that was sold a little later went higher because the supply was nearly gone. The first two were the better bang for the buck, IMO.

I can say that I bid on them but was quickly out of the running, but I DID participate!

I saw those about a month ago. I was shocked at the Grabber blue car.From what I saw it didn't even have air.I think it even had the wrong coclor of blue on the engine.It was an M code car. They are all three in this months Mustang Magazine.The Boss shows to be an original 40 something thousand miles,untouched engine compartment needed alot of detailing.The 429 car looked to be very clean.All three came from a collecter in Bama. Maybe our cars are coming into their own. I still don't know what to think about this sale. Mechom seems to be a little more realistic on their prices than the other auction houses, but that blue car is definatly an eye opener!
