I was going to put in a bid, and then noticed the car is in San Diego, not the Van nuys lot. The place did not answer when I asked what the DMV fee is all about, so I'm out. good luck if you are local.


Going, gone!

The current bid is $800.
The auction lists an ACV of $8220. I wonder what that value is based on.

A regal Lark 8 maxes out at about 9 grand, so they just guessed........ I'd state the value of this one at at 2800-3200 if I was selling it. Nice car!

Looks like it has a 4-barrel air cleaner with the big inlet tube.

Looks like it has a 4-barrel air cleaner with the big inlet tube....and the heater core hoses hooked up wrong.

So did it sell or not, and if so how much? Somehow the link disappeared. It was cached in my iPhone so I saw it once with the bid amount reset to $0, now I can't find it.

Found it in my phone. Appears it's still for sale.

IF you are a registered, Licensed Car Dealer you can register on Copart's Website and purchase a Vehicle, however there are HIDDEN charges, unknown Calif. DMV charges on this particular car, a "Broker Fee" of $200.00 if you use one, a on-line transaction fee and the deal killer, apparently SOME Cars like this one, have a HIDDEN Reserve, this one is $3000.00!

Good luck with that, on a nice looking Car but needing a $630.00 Rubber Kit, a $500.00 Windshield, a rear Glass Re-Install, the Mouldings for both and who knows what else.
On a scale of 1 to 10, Copart (the largest Auto re-seller in the World) is a 0 in my book for Honesty! :mad: :p

Update, yes Bob I see they relisted it after the Jan. 19, NO SALE. It now has an opening bid of 175.00 instead of the former $800.00, and has a BID, however they will NOT except the bidder's bid, or any other below $3000.00!
I really want this Car, but was seriously considering bidding $300.00 just to show them what it is worth with all of the fees, I asked how much DMV fees and they said you have to contact Calif. DMV with the Vin number for that, and even AFTER you buy it, you will not get it from them.

I won't pay the $200.00 Broker Fee, but you Bob, should not have to, and if your State will Register it, and it is Trucked or Trailered there should be no Calif. DMV Fees.

Good to know, Rich. I got interested last night based on your comments last night, since deleted:confused: I am a dealer, and I can handle the games they play, but the info you have added helps.

Decent little 62 2 door six auto on eBay at the moment for less than this one's reserve, just over $2000 at the moment. Definitely less than I would let mine go for...

Man, that car is virtually a visual duplicate of the '60 Lark VIII Deluxe 4-door, Colonial Red, that was the first Stude I ever rode in, owned by a family friend.
