I don't know if anyone else saw this while watching the Las Vegas BJ Auction this past weekend, but at the very end of their last broadcast, Craig Jackson previewed some of the cars going to Scottsdale in 2018.

He previewed 6S001 as one of the cars up for auction in January.  I went to the BJ website, and couldn't find any information, or even a posting of the car.

...I think this will be interesting.  Any guesses as to what it will bring?  Popcorn

6S001 was on display at Barrett Jackson last week in Las Vegas.  I had a chance to look it over, sitting there in all its glory.  Nice looking car and the blue top gave it a very unique look. 

I think it'll hammer for $325,000.

I will give thanks to this car for proving to the powers that were that a vinyl roof was a horrible, horrible idea.

Thanks for sharing this! I must have missed it.

$900K+ as advertised. Hmmmmmm. Can't wait to see what it goes for at auction!

...or, at least the high bid.

I think your estimate is conservative but that is just me.

So true!  Hysterical

The vinyl top IS part of automotive history...but, so is the Yugo.   Head knock

Likely same reason they tested the T-Bird taillights, rear spoilers .... to see what they would look like. No 3D modeling and cheaper than making a full size clay model of the time.  Not like vinyl tops were unpopular at the time.

Yup. The vinyl top was always a strange option. Maybe like hubcaps? Saved polishing? Just spray and wash?
