Not that familiar with that house..
"The bid goes on"... so what does that mean?  It did not sell at block and looking for after auction bidder?  Didn't that last sell for around 110 last time?

Man I like that white one.. (each time if comes back up for sale..lol).

Bid goes on means the car did not meet reserve and is still available.  Call Mecum and they will tell you what kind of offer it will take to make a deal.

That makes sense.  That particular car is great with colors and options to my brains, maybe a little more than the 440 car I have.  It would be interesting to know the number, but I am not likely a buyer at the moment.  Thanks.  Been watching the auctions more on TV, they might be interesting to go to one day...

People are going to get mad at me on this one, but here it goes.

I have seen this car in person at the auctions.   It is a great car, remarkably correct in pretty much every way.    But...it suffers a little in comparison to a freshly restored car, which is often over restored but shows really well in an auction environment.

Personally, I think that is why this car hasn't yet found a home.   This car stand alone is really great, at auction it is competing with an awful lot of often over restored and very pretty cars.

On TV, all these cars look really great and shiny, in person there is a marked difference between pretty fresh paint and something that has been around for a while.

IMO, this car should probably be sold privately versus at auction, at a well stated sell price.

Tan Top: you do a great job posting (preserving) the "links" details and photos. As you saw on another post, I am trying to help out and do the same.

I think you have double posted the details for the bronze car.  Looks like Bronze is the new White (hehehe).  I saw it when I was comparing the options of the white car to the McLeod car.

The image below is NOT for either car in this post.  It is for a 4-speed white C500 that was also well optioned.

Speaking of "bronze" C500's, I have the hubcaps from one that was in Rockford area in 1969.  Owner took off the factory steel rims right away and added different rims.  He had the hubcaps on a shelf for years.  When I had my C500 he sold them to me and I never put them on my car.

Sorry to go off topic, but please contact me if anyone knows of this Rockford Illinois C500 bronze/copper car  so we can reunite the numbers matching hubcaps!

After looking at the Mecum posting for the T3 Bronze hemi 500 and seeing A32 listed for the axle code, I wonder if that is a misprint or if that car was an automatic originally and converted to a 4 speed.  The code for the Super Track-Pack with a 4 gear should be A34.  Is there any fender tag info available on this car.  Might explain why the high bid was only $95K
