Sold at Bonhams auction on May 2014 for $6,050 dollars out the door.
Anyone here the lucky new owner?
Here's a link to the auction page.
Sounds like a great buy till you add the 25% buyer's premium. But at $8125 still enticing.
it said on the web page - Sold for US$ 6,050 inc. premium.
Looks like junk to me. Rusted out noplace body...boat tail looks really rough..no pics. Haywire engine...the rest must be the same. Nice steering mod.
For that kind of $$ could buy a nice TT.
I had to look twice at the photo it looked like a little model car at first. Looks like a skid plate on the back or perhaps a bumper. It musta run like stink because it burned the tires right off of it!
looks like model a steering and drag link
I think that is a wheelie bar on the back end.
Put together speedster, probably from the 30's or so.
'27 cowl, engine may be '27 as still has vaporizer carb. Perhaps no gas tank in the cowl anymore, as firewall mounted Stewart vacuum gas tank. '27 hood, and radiator. The usual water pump!
Distributor ign, and Model A steering including a Model A steering wheel.
Rest of body behind the Model T cowl is wood framed fabric covered, a simple means back then to make a body. Windshield is part of a sedan frame.
Overall, cute, but would be hard to make it look any better than it does in 'natural tired' barn state.
Nice looking Speedster and not a bad price except for the so called "buyers premium".
It ought to be called "buyers added expense" and be done with it.
When I was young and dumb I thought it meant some kind of add on for the buyer. Not just more money that the seller or auction house gets.
It's been for sale in Denmark for a while.
