Wouldn't it be car 0004 and not 004?

What are the details on 004?
Does that auction price seem a little low?

The term is "well bought".  Wink

Judging an auction price as "well bought" or "well sold" is always tough unless you have concrete knowledge of what the quality of the car actually was.

This car particularly went unspoken for over a long period of time on the public market at what was, on the face of things, a very reasonable price. The low serial number on the car is nice but there is a lot more to a car than its serial number, if you ask me.

Generally there are reasons that cars sit on the market for extended periods of time. Personally, I have way more clients looking for cars than good cars which I can reasonably find for them. Really good, original sheetmetal cars don't require extended periods of advertising (or any advertising at all) to find a home for them.

Kind regards,
Vern

I would totally agree, Vern.  My understanding is that the car had a lot of issues - one of which was undercoating; which was (potentially) hiding a lot of issues.  I never saw the car in person, but even from less detailed pictures, you could tell that all was not right in this car's world.  Undecided

How many times does a single digit 67 come up for sale?
How many single digit cars are available in the first place....?

Instead of looking what's negative on the car perhaps we should appreciate that one of the first 67s produced 50 years ago survived with it's original drive train and it still looked pretty decent....

I bet some car collector figured with the regional auction, a hurricane in FL and massive flooding in Houston it might be a good time to fly in and purchase it from a restless seller...

I wonder what 67 Shelby collector would have the insight to pull off such a caper....Huh?

Who could it be?
