I thought in the other discussion on this car it was decided the car was black and painted the current color later. Now, in the auction, it is claimed to be F6 spring green metallic?

By the looks of the trunk and door vin I still say it was a factory black car.

Well, so far no bids and only a week to go.  Better hurry because if it was a Hemi, it'd be over a million.

It is an original black car that the small town Wisconsin dealer painted Limelight while it was still on MSO.  The original dealer disliked muscle cars and felt the only way he could sell the car was to paint it a bright color.    After they did this, they went down to the local department store and got some black on white mailbox letters for the D A Y T O N A on the stripe.   In the mid 1970's, the car was repainted a second time.

Exactly, so why does that not get disclosed in the sale ad? I don't think F6 even looks like that, seems to be a more of a slime lime to me.  IMO, for a $440,000 asking price the history of the car should be explained better.

The car is on a few other websites for sale.My theory on this is. From what Ive seen these cars are on a revolving door platform.They show up get bidded high.And not met the untold reserve .Go back off the radar screen for a period.And make a comeback sooner or later.Been trying to keep up with the newest to oldest entry of what cars are on the online classifieds.And see if we have any new ones.Or just the same ones making another round.

$440k is just the opening price - it was previously listed at over $600k elsewhere, so I would guess the reserve to be a whole lot higher than $440k.  They are attempting to capitalize on the car's ultra-low mileage rather than the excellent paint job, although I agree that the car's pedigree isn't explained very well.  I suppose that since the car was painted by the dealer in that color, the seller is considering it to be "correct" or "original" even though that is highly debateable (I personally consider this a black car).  Like Doug mentioned, the color is 1970 Limelight, which is a far cry from F6.

As with any car that floats across eBay, asking a certain price and getting it are two totally different things.

It is probably linked to nascarxx29's theory.  Some of these cars are being floated across a number of sites and it's being done by brokers who are doing the same thing with a variety of cars all of which they know little to nothing except for the fact that they've promised the owners a huge sale and if they don't get it, they'll lose the commission.

I think they were asking $675,000 for it so the reserve is probably way up there.  Maybe most of the serious buyers already know the history on this car. If I were an owner of such a high dollar car the description or broker selling it should try and market it a little better, or at least correctly, to maximize profit. I bet there are still a few potential buyers out there questioning the quoted F6 color on a "original" 300 mile car. To me the color change does not take a lot away from the value as long as it is well documented and explained. I guess we will see what the Ebay market says it is worth.

True, but there are also a lot of collectors out there who do not take much personal interest in the car.  Not that they don't necessarily love the car, just that it may be a very small part of their day to day thinking.  Someone is paid to look after it and that's the extent of it.  I don't know that this car falls under that heading but it may be possible.

Car has a great history as always being very low mileage. I think a collector should purchase the car, and keep it in the same color scheme it is now. considering it has worn these colors for 36 years longer than it wore the origional black.

Rene is absolutely right.  It needs to go back on e-bay when it gets to 304,000 miles.  That would be awesome.

actually, this seller thinks a hemi car would be worth a BILLION dollars judging by the amount of zero's in his answer to that question.

also, over 300 miles on it and it was only driven once?  that's one hell of drive.

I wouldn't argue that logic, if it's based on sentimentality alone. 

But why am I worried about the color of someone else's car??  Danny constantly reminds me my own Daytona isn't one color   Tongue

Well Gene even though your Daytona is multiple colors you still have one, which is more than I can say for me personally.

OH and your Charger isn't the proper color either.  Grin

I was afraid I wouldn't get as many Dukes of Hazzard comments if I took it back to F8 Green...   Tongue

BTW, welcome back Danny - I had thought perhaps you were on a Spring Break of sorts, or were travelling with your folks overseas.  Glad your connection is back up.

Nah last time i checked Spring Breaks ended when I left college in 1998. Or if they didn't I have missed the last 8 of them.

I will be  traveling this weekend though to Vegas for the show.
