I found that car in the basement of a ford dealer in ne ohio while on a obsolete ford parts buying trip. The dealer called me back in early 90s wanting to sell it needing $ for a new wrecker so I put him in touch with my brother ( who owns a wrecker business ) then I bought the car for Kim MIllers boss 351 collection in MN.

So that was one of Kim Millers cars. I didn’t know that. Do you remember what that dealer in Ohio wanted for the car back in the 90’s? I have a Kim Miller car that had a appraisal paper with it dated 1989. It appraised for 22K.

Also curious why that dealer saved the car. Must have had a crystal ball and knew he had a collector car of value in the future. Thanks for sharing the story. The stories behind these cars are as much fun as the car.

  b1n 71 from what I remember at the time it wasn't cheap like mid upper 30s   whatever a new wrecker was going to cost at that time.

Auctioneer tried to start bidding at $200k but no takers, so dropped to $100k.
Bidding was sluggish and took a while to get to selling price of $175,000 + buyer's commission.
