Anyone know the winning bids for the 1963 GT Hawk and the Packard Hawk?

I'd say these prices seem down a bit from maybe a couple years back...JDP, what do you think?

Also...are Avanti-Powered Larks bringing as much as Avanti-Powered GT's, or are GT's still ahead? John?:D

Inquiring minds want to know!

The master cylinder on the Avanti shows as a dual unit. This was not available in the 63/64 models. We estimated a price range of $30-40k
based on the sales observed that Saturday during the auction. Quite a shocker when I heard of the 85K price ( I was at a car show with my 78 Avanti II and finished in the top 20 with a very nice Trophy ).

Next weekend is the Barrett/Jackson auction in Palm Beach. Will be there on Thursday.

I think all the high bids were fairly high. The GT Hawk and PH had some issues for that sort of bids, especially with the buyer premium. I do think that R2 Larks do tend to bring the highest prices. As a matter of fact, the 40K plus for the first package Lark ( 2 door sedan) is the highest R2 I know about.
