Tim what a great example of an original BOSS you have. Someone will be very lucky to own such a fine car. Mike

Thanks Mike - I agree with you, especially when I see recent stuff like this...

Not a single survivor in the bunch and the yellow 430 car was a rust bucket with both torque boxes visibly replaced....I guess they didn't get the memo from the low ballers that the market is soft ::)

The market should be a lot softer on those examples but not the quality of your BOSS. Mike

Willing to entertain a partial trade for a new/low mileage 2016-2018 GT350R if anyone has one or has access to a dealership that is going to be getting an allocation this year.

I'm taking the trade option off the table.  Since I've put my car up for sale, the prices on the GT350 and LS cars seem to be taking on water.  I think I will wait a couple years till the next shiny object is released and pick one of the R cars up for less than the regular 350's are selling for.

Ford Boss and Ford GT prices were not very stout at the last Texas Mecum auction. I didn't personally see the cars in order to judge them fairly.

UPDATE 11/30/18 Contrary to the thread in general discussion - this car did not sell for no reserve at $91k on ebay.  I bought it back with a protection bid.

$129k.  Kinda motivated - kinda not.


Trades involing GT350R, 2013 Laguna, 67 Shelby, 68 R-code considered.  The reason my original paint Calypso Coral 430 car is for sale is because I acquired a restored Calypso Coral 430 Detroit Locker car about 3 years ago that I can drive without fear of damaging the survivor.  This car can be viewed in my new climate controlled showroom after Feb 1, 2019.  The showroom was part of an old Dodge dealership built in 1965 to accommodate 4-5 cars and is next door to my current shop - been waiting 15 years for the building to come up for sale and the day finally came.  Feeling fortunate after playing the long game. :)

Not meant to be a disparaging remark - what is the point of a "No Reserve" auction, if there actually IS a reserve or at least a minimum amount over the starting price that it takes to buy the car?

I do get what your saying. However, No reserve often draws attention, and motivates the interest.
Bidding on your own auction is surely ok too. I wouldn’t hesitate to do the same if I wasn’t happy with the numbers. Just means you have to pay the sale fee like anyone else would.
Although I’m picking he never even wrote himself out a check! Damn tire kickers!!  ;D

Back when I was at Faber College, Dean Wormer would have called it a "Double Secret Reserve."
