For those who take an interest in the '65s, not much of a description of the car on the Mecum site yet.

I always assume not if they don't specifically say so in the description.

Yes it was numbers matching, Saac documented. I took it in the shorts while the pos at rm just hammered at $410,000. Glad I don't do this for a living

That seems to contradict the information in the earlier auction links when I reviewed . At least in regards to engine. Popcorn

Check your shelby registry. It was raced with a 351 with Webber setup while the original engine was shelved

To my point, the previous ebay auction description states-  "engine VIN/serial number that are present in a manner that is consistent with build sequence of the described vehicle. Numbers Matching does not promise or guarantee originality of the engine. " . Call me cynical but it is a little suspicious that the sellers worded the disclaimer in that way. They must have been skittish about something Wink Most likely all is fine.  It certainly would be prudent to put that original engine claim to further scrutiny using the usual methods if I was paying the bucks.  FYI a lot of the information gathered by the registrar is based on taking the word of the previous owner at face value and assume that everything they share is true and factual.There have been times that the information passed on to the registrar by previous or new owners is less then factual. The information gathered by the registrar from Ford memos and other documents you can pretty much take to the bank. The owner supplied information on the other hand is not as bankable.

The amount bid for 391 was strong money for the car.

And calling a car offered at another auction out as a "POS" in comparison is particularly puzzling...especially when you compare the two cars in question. There isn't much comparing between the two cars. I'll leave it at that.

Vern

Are you referring to 5S490? If so, there is no way in the world to refer to that car as a POS.

There are so many variables that go into an auction. Many of them are out of the sellers/buyers control. The forum has dicussed them many times.

I am not sure why anyone would roll the dice?

Complaining afterwards is a little disingenuous in my opinion.

Agreed. The car at RM was a great example....largely original, and it presented very well.  It was getting a lot of attention as a result. The car was a joy to look at an it's history was talking to you as you looked at it.

Buyer's remorse or the purported sale wasn't real?
