1969 Boss Project KK#1601

I hope someone here can find this useful. If I did not already dump my load on my 69 I sure would go after this.

Interesting car. Alot of questions as to what is there and what isnt. Would have been nice if he had put some engine compartment shots.

Well, there is a fan finger guard in the passenger side front floor board, and an export brace and L.H. exhaust manifold in the trunk along with a radiator and what looks like may be the space saver spare tire and wheel!  Is that an electric fuel pump mounted in the trunk?

Also noticed it still has the oil cooler mounted and maybe the correct front spoiler.

I believe I know this car from many years ago.

Project, but could be a solid beginning.

I have left two messages, no response just yet.

 Mike, I believe I remember this car from the late 70's sitting out in the weather on grass in a back yard along side the NY State Thruway.....I am sure quite a few people remember this as literally thousands of people passed it every hour on the road and it was easy to see. Good project however I don't see any photos of the bottom side. I would love to know the year on the registration sticker in the window.

Awesome project, at north of 95K you better be able to do alot yourself.

I'll venture a guess rust is a good friend of this car, and if the air cleaner, carb  and dizzie are missing you have have another big dollar in it.

I have done a few, and this will be a challenge to make a reasonable financial proposition, unless you have alot of spare sheetmetal and and b9 parts......

He told me I could not see the car ... in two weeks they would contact all the bidders and then the highest bidders could view the car ... I have no interest in bidding unless I see the car first.

Something here does not sound right ?
Why can a bidder not go look at this car ?
I for one would not even bid if I could not go and have
a look first !!!!

Does seem a bit odd but put yourself in their shoes. If they allow everybody that MAY want to submit a bid in for a look they would have people lined up around the block. Who knows, may be some 80 year old widow not wanting all the traffic and potential for theft. If I was serious I would turn in a bid and at least get first right of refusal. Now if you have to pay before you can look that's a different story.

If you wants bids, take lots of pictures and put it on Ebay. I don't like this method. Or post the price you want and stick with it..

I'm told its a widow and she dont want people wandering around her home ... so at this point no one really knows the eaxct location of the car ... in two weeks they say they will ntify the bidders and sell it in one day.

I have no interest in this car at that price  ... but if someone wants to set something up with the Shop auctioning the car for the women ... I would be happy to go and take some pictures ... I live close to the location of the car.

NO !
The whole thing looks off..
I would just back away and let the seller rethink
of the proper way to sell...
Detailed pics will help.

OK ! the last posted bid was $95,000 ?
I think they or who ever are looking for a bunch more.
Don`t think we will see a sale on this one just now ?

The car sold to a gentleman not far from where the car was located. I don't know if he knew the person selling it or not. I understand it has been resold and the latest owner has arranged for a ground up restoration at a shop that does super high quality work.. The new owner is new to boss 9's but has always wanted one for his collection. He requested that his name be kept confidential.

Well, I guess his name is no longer a secret. Maybe he decided he would rather have a Corvette. :o :
