Very low miles - was this Sandy's?? I think this one was on Ebay recently for big bucks. I'll bet it has a very high reserve.

That's Sandy's all right.

Be the first Coupe I've seen go on a televised auction.

With that low mileage it really can't be considered a 'bellwether' for the value of our cars. The value is in the extremely low, pampered mileage and overall condition. Doubt that another one like this exists. Not many have ever gone thru an auction in any condition. Very hard to come up with a value when selling. You'll get what the market will pay.

I know I've said it before, but I wouldnt really want that car, I buy my cars to drive, and that car is going to need some work before you can drive it any distance with that low mileage, I bet the seals are shot. Still, makes a good car for a show piece for sure

He's passed on $25k. Seems he'll die before coming off that same $32,500 no one has bit in almost a year.

My top bid would be a lot less than what he refused. There are too many problems with extremely low mileage.

What problems?

The car has a few small touches from Sandy, but otherwise is exactly how it was delivered from the dealer.
