Was there $100,000 in cash locked in the trunk? 

The seller should be doing cartwheels.

This was a very fresh restoration.    Really nice detail work in the engine bay.

Troy, wide nose gap like a Daytona means the gasket is on backwards.   The gasket is asymmetrical in design.    The thin side is what should be visible.    Not a difficult mistake to correct, but time and labor.

Yep.. they made the mistake I did 28 years ago when I pulled the gasketless nose off mine and installed new ones from YOne with no instructions, nothing to go by and no internet! Some day I should get around to pulling it and install the second set of gaskets I bought 20 years ago!  lol

It is real easy to make that mistake,the design of the gasket makes it look like the wrong way is the right way.

Other than it's a REAL stretch to get the latch tray bolts back in ! That should have been MY clue at the time!  brickwall

I saw this car in person and it was gorgeous. Very well done. However, notice no mention of the fendertag? Pretty obvious why if you saw a pic of it.

Was the fender tag swiss cheese?

I don't see that as an issue if he has broadcast sheets for the car. I'm in the same boat with my 'Bird, I have 1 1/2 broadcast sheets, dash VIN, both hidden body VIN stamps, undisturbed door VIN decal and someone thought it would be great to borrow the fender tag!! No choice but to have MCI make me a reproduction..

I don't see it as a problem either, but to pay 100% more than top dollar for a car without an original fender tag seems silly to me.

What's equally funny to me is that guys go to B-J knowing ahead of time they will pay too much for a car.  They brag about it ahead of time.

So, as a takeway, does this set the standard for top dollar of a non-hemi Superbird?  V Code, 4 speed with an overall good and fresh resto, sold at the high buck venue.

its good if you're already an owner and plan to sell but it artificially drives the price up for those of us who want to own one. Didn't a Superbird in a collection get burned several years ago in an insurance scam by a (dumb) owner who panicked when prices dropped?
