It might help to know where the car needs to be picked up.

I am not towing there but others might be.

Well so much for that thought as I now see 2 more b9s listed on mecum fl. auction & don't know where they got the mca gold award listed on the orange/white int.b9 as that car was never at mca show & that will be corrected as soon as Donald sends mecum our updated description.  No b9s listed at BJ scottsdale yet anybody know of any going ?
I have not heard of any b9's  going to BJ Yet ED,   BUT I WILL HAVE MY 69 427/435hp TRI POWER , L89 Corvette there

We just got kk 2433 here at fl. mecum yesterday after working  thru dec. doing final detailing & fixing mostly small things to improve this rare 70 b9 after it was delivered to our shop after MCACN show where it got a gold losing 14 points but after going over the car in our shop on a lift & having plenty of time my list was much longer & we got most items fixed before mecum. You have to have a car on a lift & have the time & a good lite & not be bothered to really inspect a car since there are to many areas of the car you cant see if car is sitting on the ground & crawling under a car on the ground to inspect it don't work to good especially if you are getting (husky ha ha)) in your old age. This 70 b9 has many nos & Most of its original parts stayed with the car over the years & a great rust free body. It has nos autolite fuel & oil & air filters & the first 70 b9 restored that i know of to have the 70 b9 820-a solid lifter 725 rpm  doae # timing decal under the hood as after finding one last summer on a low mile original 70 b9 I had this unique decal made & also this 70 b9 has the 70 warranty letter with it after finding one of them last year I had a copy made. This 70 b9  # s98 sells this sat. if anyone is interested.

I would rather have an original rustfree panel car, that is correctly restored, with an engine that's a few digits off than a pos rustbucket with the #'s matching block. Great color too. Good luck Ed.

Interesting,   I made an offer on this car some time back.  After the fees he would have been ahead on my cash price.

I saw this car in Tulsa and Chicago...very, very nice. I also made an offer that would have netted the seller much more.
Just my opinion, but cars of this quality should not go to auction for several reasons.

I think there were a lot of cars sold at this auction where the seller would have done better on their own. Dealers bought some of them and now will ask the high buck. EBAY would have served some of the sellers better.

........and offers you guys made on this car should stay between you and the seller, not posted on the web. He took it to auction because he knows the car is worth more to and end buyer than the lowball offers coming from resellers that have to leave meat on the bone for a guaranteed profit. Most Boss cars that are for sale have never been judged, had corrections made and then rejudged to get a gold. This seller made sure his car is among the best and advertised here first. Cars of this quality should sell privately but seller is in Canada where buyer pool is smaller and timing is everything. Auction was his last resort. He surely doesn't need to visit this site later and be reminded by you guys that had he accepted lowball offer he would have netted more.  He already knows that.

it is a very nice BOSS 9,  MY thoughts its a 325-350k car.....he must have lowered the reserve
during the sale .., does both the buyer and seller pay 10%  like barrett-jackson ?

 With a current 1.32 /1.00 exchange rate, it gives Canadian sellers a positive advantage and justification to sell at this time. If it's just a numbers game, there no issue here. Just my 2c.
