I'll get the bidding started. Pretty sure the reserve is going to keep my truck and trailer parked.

Friend of mine with scrape yard use to like the engine fire cars. Said they always looked bad but were good rebuilders. He said they were running vehicles before the fire meaning no rod knocks or bad transmissons and the price would be right.
I don't know what he wants for the Pantera but he says the Shelby Trans Am Mustang car is rarer then a 65 R model and was valued at $300-400k AS IS and he wanted reasonable offers. He wouldn't consider $150k back in August.

Because of what it is I thought it was worth $50ish. 5R530. A car that went to Peru originally and has no "signifigantly valuable" race history was just recently for sale for $875k. That makes the serial number on the Trans-Am car "priceless" to it's current owner.

Figure what the Pantera should be worth then double it. All the Shelby vintage racers know of him. Not in the good sense.

I talked to Kleinpeter about 20 some years ago when he had the car for sale. Gary Halls recommendation as I recall, was to "stay away from it, it isn't a real Pantera, you can build your own". Kleinpeter was sick of it. As far as the expense of operating the car, in his words "it would be cheaper to just light up $100 bills and throw them at the car". I always loved that quote. Big Grin

Just my 2 cents worth. Wink
