My $$$ is on reserve not being met, but I'll guess bidding up to $250k since it's an unrestored two headlight model. 

I love some of the comments. 

regarding the two light version "down, the car is deferential and almost meek, as if it’s looking for something it dropped on the floor. up, it’s awake, but somewhat shocked to be there."


The video of him backing it off the lift was cringworthy...  the r/f tire was barely on the ramps and almost slid off.  Then he had to back a goose through what looked like a construction site...  no simple task under the best of conditions.  I am always paranoid backing mine anywhere...  even with a discreet rearview camera.

After seeing the videos I’m less optimistic on price. Generally its poor etiquette  to dump on a listing, but I must concur with MKEH- a goose had no business on that lift! In fact the entire listing quite amateurish and not doing the owner any favors. Also the two headlight version is (in my experience) the less desirable configuration.  I’d wager that top dollar buyers are looking past this one. That being said, unrestored with low mileage and a good history... hard to say how this will turn out. 

...8ma1144 is up again on Ebay, after a bit of scrubbing on the undercarriage, repaired seat, swapped shift knob.....It sold during car week for $215k, and is back for sale at the BAT asking price. Schmitt seems to like Mangustas. 

 I'm curious if anybody has a late car with a tool kit...The one here is the right vinyl (with gray interior), but stuffed with 6 open-end wrenches....The picture is not very clear, but at least all appear to be USAG ~252 (well, at least with the size embossed on the handle). The only change I'm sure of is the variation in spark plug wrench (between sliding and fixed handle...). But I'd be curious if cars continued to the end with tool kits, even. Scanning Provamo (lazy day in Taiwan, a typhoon holiday the last mentions of tool kits are in 1160 and 1216, and the last picture in 1084...Lee


ps. 8ma1144 has engine #234 (written on the original sales invoice dated 9/25/70!)
