Doesn't the engine seem awfully greasy/oily for only 8,500 miles?

Let me guess you/we all read the same Ford Forums!

That motor is pretty dirty for only 8K miles  :o

You are probably right!   Seeing a 1973 inspection sticker, tires replaced at least once and owners MO of driving for a few years and parking (like most of the other cars) it is probably 108K.    (Remember this was a time when all of our fathers knew that a car was going to break at 100K miles - LOL)

I'm sure this too will be one of those sales that a buyer will be "hell bent on winning", overpay and then find out just what they bought after.      When you find "barn stored" cars - car guys know that just means in need of total restoration.   Bad gas, frozen brakes and Mice smells!

Food for thought. How many miles could they have put on it in a little over two years. Check the bill of sale and the inspection sticker. You couldn't drive on an outdated inspection sticker. Who knows where the oil residue came from or when. If the car sat for a long time between starts, the gaskets could dry out and cause leaks. I would bet that the miles are original and will be verified.

It is closer to 4 years (and that doesn't take into consideration that owner may have driven without inspection).   

Also just as possible that the original motor was blown up and a replacement 428CJ went in.   That would explain the early for production plug wires in a fairly late 69 car.

Anybody who went to this auction expecting to find a bargain really got disappointed. I told someone before the auction, this is not the right venue to sell these cars. Little did I know. Everything went for 2-3 times the money. Maybe BJ should take a lesson from this. Lot of nice stuff, guns, cars, lawnmowers etc. all pulled good money. Hats off to the auctioneers. Lot of people there clearly had an emotional attachment.

Mike, I think you are over reacting. The whole auction could not have been rigged.

Ron Gilligan auctioneers seem to be a very reputable company. I was there and the bidders seemed to be legit. I guess that there's a lot of deep pockets in the area with long arms to reach the bottom. The proceeds I understand went to Brown's sisters. Maybe the locals wanted to contribute to their welfare.

you think those prices are crazy, check out the results of the auction of lambrecht chevy .
put on by Vanderbrink auctions
this auction was advertized national for months
this auction took place in rural north east nebraksa
a 58 chevy cameo pickup $140,000
a  64 chevy impala 97,000
a 58 chevy apache pickup 80,000
a 78 chevy corvete indy pace car 80,000
a 64 chevy imppala  $75,000
a  63 chevy covair $42,000
yes most of the car and trucks were new with low milages alot under 20 miles
you think they were in premo condition , but they werent, most of the sat outside for years, and every one of them need something.
some ones that did sit inside, the roof collapsed on them.
parts were missing , radators taked out.
just goes to show you auction prices are nut.
and so are chevy guys
