FYI:The Model K Roadster, which was discussed here previously, sold at auction last night for 225,000.00 plus 10 percent buyers premium. Seems like a fair price for a big brass car.

I had an interest, but that was crazy money for an unrestored car.
It will sure be a beauty when it gets done, just hope it was someone in the USA!!!!!

The link doesn't say how much it went for?

Bob, IMHO, the problem was not so much that it was unrestored but that it was partially restored or at lease messed with many years ago. That Godawful paint would have to go, the wheels need work, all those things. My guess would be that you could put another $100,000 in it in a heartbeat. That made it about $324,000 more than I had this week.

It sold for $225,000 + 10% premium or $247,500. In addition, if the buyer is an Arizona resident there is about 8 1/2 % sales tax added to that.

Maybe Rob bought for a parts car?

I was also interested, but with my back surgery and work projects, the time was not right. I don't mind that it was unrestored, I just couldn't live with that color!

Kim, Krylon comes in lots of colors! You could paint it whatever color or combination you want. 😄

I could live with a Model K if it was purple with pink and blue polka dots!

And I used to think airplanes were expensive! -The rarest and most expensive examples, the WWII fighters (Mustangs, Thunderbolts, Corsairs, etc.), go for around 2-million bucks per copy and of course, that's out of reach of most people. -But 2-million doesn't compare with what the British accent auctions are getting for some collector-cars (If the guy with the microphone and gavel has the rapid-fire, tongue-twisting, hard-sell vocal style of a tobacco auctioneer, the cars may cost anywhere between twelve grand and two-hundred-thousand, but if the auctioneer has a British accent and speaks slowly, that means the cars can fetch astronomical millions). -I think the record was for a Ferrari 250 GTO which went for an earth-shattering 34-million smackeroos. -Suddenly, a quarter of a mil for an unrestored 1907 Ford Model K doesn't sound nuts.
