This one totally went by me for some reason!

Former SDC member Marine Wolf passed away last October, leaving a huge collection of cars, parts, and accessories (including Studes galore).
I thought perhaps his amassed junkyard would be sold on Hemmings, but it showed up on eBay and I MISSED IT! Someone hit the BIN.

Here's the link -

WOW! What a package! Could be a good deal- all depends on condition and actual models of the cars. Last night on B-J an Airflow was sold as a barn find- was totally buried under hay bales, owener died, widow didn't know her late husband even had it! Was in excellent condition, but it was said that it didn't take much to get it there; sold for $300K[:0] Can't wait to get to my house with high-speed internet tomorrow so I can see if there's pictures...[B)]

I'd like to meet the person who bought this package! Looks like a lottery winner or inheritance recipient[8D] 57 eBay purchases since last September- everything from motorcycle parts, a bunch of BB Ford engine parts, model train stuff, sports cards, even a Little Mommy Bedtime Doll! Also just bought a 71 Ford for $430... then $195 THOUSAND on a whole bunch of cars! I cringe at the thought of what it will take to move 110 cars[:0]

I'll be watching this buyer's eBay activity to see if this stuff starts appearing for sale individually;)

Note to JDP- Maybe this buyer has some money left over and would like to add a really nice GT or two to his collection;)

Yikes....
I think his estate made out quite well..
That is a big chunk of money for what was shown.
I wish the new re-seller well.
Imagine moving all that stuff.

:) Astonishing. What a stash. Oh, for the time and place to move it, sort it, and see that it all got into proper hands. That was one man's lifetime accumulation...and could easily be another man's lifetime dispersion! :D BP

Seriously now; you guys are kidding. Right??

That's a good buy??

All that JUNK spread all over outdoors, rotting. The cost of cataloguing, moving, re-selling. . .

and only $195,000.00

American dollare must be worth less than I thought.

I wonder how much of the stuff will just get scrapped in place.
I liked the boiler plate at the end. Moving the collection won't be a problem. All the buyer has to do is pay postage and a $3 handling fee. Can you imagine buying a postal money order for $195,000 (or using PayPal)? At least the buyer can return it all for a 15% re-stocking fee if they don't like the deal.

I need to take photos of all my rusting junk and hang an outrageous price on it. In fact, for $500K someone can own the junk, the property, the house, the shop, all the citrus they can eat and my cage full of doves!!!

Any takers???[:p]

I'd have to assume that anyone with that kind of money to lay out on something like this has done a thorough inventory in person of the stuff, and has carefully determined it to be worth the money...

Otherwise, it's as I initially said- someone coming into a huge windfall, and they are woefully unprepared to handle said windfall...

After all, how many lottery winners have we heard about in the news that blew through the money and were worse off than before they got it?

Intriguing story, though.

Folks, I talked briefly with the eBay seller this morning, and it seems this was merely a "floater" - the real auction will be later.

I spent about 2 years helping Marine, and let me tell you - he had no mechanical skills to speak of. He was a dreamer, and junk collector for the most part. It didn't help that he was color blind, he couldn't distinguish anything he dropped on the grass or dirty floor.

There is far more in the way of NOS parts & accessories not pictured or mentioned in this stuff - stacks of NOS tires still wrapped in white paper, a Model B motor with aluminum head and intake sporting 2 carbs, hand tools and parts scattered willy-nilly around the building and property.

The auctioneers don't even know what everything is, perhaps someone noted the 1932 Dictator Victoria in the pix? The off-white 1952 Commander is mine - he was storing it for me. Boy - the auctioneer was surprised when I told him I had the title!

More on this story as it proceeds, folks!

Floater or not, unless you were there to see all that was NOT photographed, there could be some real value in there. Anyone know the value of 1929 Cadillacs? - there was one in that mess that will probably get a sympathetic restoration.

Of course the truth is that there is a lot there that simply needs to be thrown out rather than being transported to a new location. Its the moving time and expense that really kill that deal.
