must have been a last minute add-on to the sale, as they give absolutely zero info about the car

I saw a TV show recently and that car was in a shop in the backround. The shop was a Chevy shop called NICKEY that builds engines.

Hopefully the next owner leaves it alone like the last couple have.    It's a show stopper.

It is a great, totally solid 16,000 mile car. I redid the engine, trans, brakes, rad etc. I traded Stefano, the owner of Nickey this car for another. I guess I had it a fairly long time - time flies. All I did was wet sand and buff the custom paint job put on in the early 70's and got rid of the red shag carpet and put the original seats and console back in. It also had headers and T/A style side exhaust. I put all original stuff back in. It is an A32 car as well.....4.10 Dana. Love those Spyder wheels - I kept those on. We put it through a wind tunnel a few years back to compare against a 69 Charger and a new Charger.

Any guesses on what it might bring?
If I were to guess I would think no more than $150K.
I would imagine most bidders will be turned off on it in its current state.
Just my 2 cents.

Tip to Tip Bird driven from Fairbanks to Key West


« Reply #19 on: May 19, 2019, 02:39:03 PM »

Just like the "no-sale" Bird made to look like a Nascar racecar that stopped at $70,000. The buyers for these cars don't want to spend money for the nostalgia of someone else. If they have a pedigree that's one thing, but the day 2 look without a pedigree, or the fake racecar look without a pedigree has minimal value to a collector. No problem with the nostalgia here but realistically the value of the cars in the resale and auction market is almost totally based on the pedigree or the restoration.

Both of those cars seemed to have been valued on the block with the cost of a "proper restoration"  to boring stock figured in. 

Perhaps the biggest loser of the auction is the guy who bought the Tor-Red Superbird V0A171586 that was burned to a crisp in 2008.   Disclosed as a salvage title, someone paid up $176k.    It would seem they did not do something as simple as a Google search on the VIN.

And even with a tremendous pedigree, the Juliano RTS show cars all went for reasonable money compared to some production line Mopars that brought big money.   It  can be a thin market for cars that are not viewed as mainstream.
