Just curious ....

There was a red 64 GT R2 4 speed on E bay last week. It was on the back cover of the most recent Turning Wheels. A day before the auction ended, the bid was around $29,000. I wasn't able to see the results, though. I know that some of these e-bay bids escalate in the last few minutes.

Does anyone know what the final bid was on that car? And did it sell? I'm not looking to buy another one, but my curiosity is nevertheless aroused since I happen to own a 64 R2 4 speed GT myself, although it's not in the same condition as the red one.

Thanks,
Larry

It was my understanding that the guy had originally wanted around $38K fir the car and reduced the reserve to $33K as he needed to sell the car. There is a Black one on eBay now that closes in an hour or two at a little over $24K in the same boat reserve not met.

Hey Super, you can check on auctions that have ended by scrolling down on the left side to "Completed Listings" and left click on the box. I think it goes back 30 days.

Don- He was looking for $69K![:0] Here's the first listing:

Here's the previous thread:

My theory was that the purpose of the WAY over the top listing was to hustle somebody into thinking it was worth better than double of what it actually is. I wonder if it might be that he planted the idea of $69K with a decoy listing to give the perception of a super-bargain at a still higher than market price...

I could be wrong on both counts- maybe he just laid it on too thick due to lack of sales experience. Maybe he paid way too much from a good pitch and is just carrying that forward. But IMO he was bid more than all the money at $32K, and didn't sell, so it does provoke thought...

The seller may be a decent guy, I have no evidence in that aspect. No question it's a beautiful car, and hopefully it will continue to get the princess treatment it obviously has had right along[:X][^]

Didn't this fellow only recently join the SDC? If so, I wonder why he's still trying to sell his Stude[?] Either way, it is a very nice car. LH
