Auction 9/12/14 - BOSS429
« on: September 10, 2014, 01:01:40 pm »
Thought I would post this here just as a general interest piece. I was forwarded this link relating to a muscle car auction in two days. What caught my eye was a grabber green BOSS 429. Check it out, what is something like that worth? Lots of other nice stuff too.

If you read the auction terms you will see that you would need $10,000 in your pocket for each car that you wanted to bid on. The bidders will be serious with serious money. This has been all over the news since June or July. So, like Jeremy said, nothing will be cheap.

I looked at the GG car, it's nice but a few items turned me to not attend the auction tomorrow.

Passenger quarter has been replaced, and a lot of repop parts under hood.

The bidding will be serious tomorrow, and these cars I think will be strong money. Looked to be some serious players there.

That being said, that car is not what I would pursue for strong money. That is purely my opinion for my investment preferences.

Cool experience, and got to catch up with a few board members after at a nice gentlemans club. Bada Bing!

I know two of the previous owners before Mecum bought the car as a collection buyout.

Just visited a car collection 1h:30 min. from home were the Superbird now resides.there were A few Yenkos there too, but not sure if they came from that auction. The Superbird for sure is, it has the Pizza add on Aircleaner. I went there because the guy has two 69 Boss429, one Maroon and a Raven Black.

I think you went there to visit so you would not have to line up at the drags with the Boss 302 equipped 67 Cougar or a "Duster"!! ;D

Ed, it was the Pizza sign on air cleaner that made me find the connection to the auction. Yes it appears to be nice resto. The new owner also has two 69 Boss9s. One is black and the other Maroon. I drove my 70 Fastback 580horse Cleveland 500mile round trip to see the collection. Dancobraman,the trip was more fun than 1/4 mile(s) for 11seconds.
