Is it going to meet the reserve?
The suspense is terrible...I hope it will last...
Wonder if Jay Leno is in on this?
One less thing to sell at the garage sale.
It just sold for 95k
And the new owner is ?
Reserve met in the last few minutes. I hope someone is jumping for joy at their purchase!
I kept refreshing it and it stayed at $89,600 until the very last second. Someone who really wanted it sniped it with perhaps a six figure bid and it went straight to the $95,000 reserve.
I'm surprised, I thought 105,000-115.000, I think the new owner is in the states, but I'll leave that to him.
As the clock started counting down (last 10 or 15 minutes?) it refreshed on it's own for me.
I was sure the reserve was $90,000 and wanted to put in a bid for $89,700 just to say I bid on it. But if it had been the last bid AND satisfied the reserve, I don't know who I would have been in bigger trouble with. . . the seller or my wife!
(in fact, she sat right next to me just to make sure I didn't do something foolish!
Hope we find out who bought it. I'd love to see it in person.
Wow someone got a great deal.
The eBay app refreshes every second. It was at 95k for the last 5 seconds at least, maybe more. So it wasn't a last second snipe.
Does anyone know of a T that has sold publicly for more?
Bob, it would be fun to put in a token bid but, way too risky near the end of the auction. The reserve was indeed $95,000. The buyer could have bid a million but, as the only person bidding at the end, it goes straight to the reserve price and no higher. That's the way I bid on T bay and I never lose.
A two lever T sold at Barrett Jackson this year for $131000.00
Probably add 20 percent for the buyers premium
So final cost could b 114000.00
Its actually kinda of depressing compared to how much muscle cars are fetching at auction these days.
eBay does not charge any premiums. The seller paid $60 to sell the car.
Well, Rob, will we be seeing this on the NLNB tour next year?
Thanks for all of the interest in #220. The car is going to what I consider to be the best possible home. For the moment, the buyer would like to remain anonymous, but you will be hearing about it, in time.
We look forward to seeing you at the Lau Garage Sale in Portland on October 24-25.
Thanks again -
For the Lau Family
Well, if there was a pool, I would have lost; my $250 guess was way off! Oh well, at least I can say I bid on it (at around $3K)--which was the only reason I bid, as I knew it would go for WAY more than that. Ebay kept sending me notes "you are outbid!" Uh, yeah, now back to reality!
David, glad it found a good home, you are having to deal with a really emotional and complex job right now, best wishes to you and the family.
Dang, if I knew it was going to sell so low I would have bid on it!
It would look good parked out in my yard next to Rusty.
