  • Atlantic City auction/show

    I was at the show on Sat. There were three beautiful Studes there.
    No sale at $17,500
    no sale at $39,000

    Didn't go across the auction block when I was there. There was a price on the window of $33,000. Don't know what it was bid up to.
    All were beautiful cars.

    They are beautiful, but I wonder why the seller of the 52 convertible decided to paint the headlight rims.

        Here's the story on Ed's 53 Commander:

        "And now for the rest of the story----because of a business related
        schedule conflict which i wasn't able to change until the last minute
        i was not able to register for a good time slot for the auction
        [Saturday between noon and 8pm is considered prime time] so the best i
        could do was go on the block on Thurs at about 3pm. the car was bid to
        39k which didn't make my reserve of 44.5k. i figured that if it
        brought 39k on Thurs it might have gone for above the reserve on
        Saturday. i decided to hang around after the auctioneer told me he
        would like to rerun it on Sat if they had a cancellation. I stayed
        around the floor hoping for a private sale which didn't happen and by
        Saturday at 4pm they had no cancellations so with a bad weather
        forecast for early Sunday AM i decided i didn't want to take the
        chance of not selling it on the block [if a cancellation had occurred]
        and then having to trailer it back in the snow,sleet and salt early
        Sunday morning. WTF the way i see it is a 53 commander [no rust ever]
        with less than 18k original miles, a 3spd, leather interior, Bombay
        red, frame off restoration isn't going to get any less valuable
        sitting in my garage. ed"

            I wouldn't want to give up that beautiful car if it was mine.

                Does that Lark convertible really have a BIN price of $33,000 on the windshield?

                    Was that 53 Commander the same one that was at Hershey last fall? The color looks different, but it may just be the lighting. I think this car was also 3 speed with 18,000 miles.

                            I was at the auction as well and saw these cars, I was there with my club members. There was also a orange bullit nose there, it was modified. I saw the lark and thought it was best looking stude in the house.I wish I had saw you JDP. The wife and I had a great time, won some money at Bally's and came back to buy some more supplies for the 61 hawk. There was a paint supply guy there that had some great stuff, Branden Enterprises, he had something call sunburst we got some it's high temp paint can't wait to see what it looks like on the stude motor and intake.
