69 Eliminator 390 4 speed estate auction. I've known this car since brand new. Tried to purchase over the years owner was always going to restore it and of course never did. Just not in my in my plans and future now to bid on it. Sat outside till mid 80's then shared a garage with cats and windows were down cats in and out of it Moved to a pole barn late 80's away from cats was put on jack stands. Pole barn developed leak in roof and a gaping hole right above car. Right side window was out of track and in back seat for years. Hood and trunk open while sitting.Engine frozen. Center grille section broken.Rear spoiler replaced early 70's ? Warranty card was in glove box , was first titled in owners Mothers name. As far as I know never any accidents. I have seen a basic Marti Report verifying it is legit but as I said I've Known this car since new , My dad had a Sunoco station and I recall Him repairing the Rim Blow Horn. The owner lived 2 doors away from us. Hope this can find a good home.
Whoof, rough one! Lot's of discussion on this in the FB group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/473220306059769/)

Has me thinking though... given condition perhaps one could get it at a very low cost? And I mean very low... home to cats (piss), frozen engine, non-original rear spoiler, rot....
Oddity of an auction site (mom and pop feel) - may not get noticed by "flippers"
Auctioneer says they will accept max bids by folks not in person and will contact bidders by phone if bid is down to last 2 bidders.

So... what would your max bid be? Can this be had for $2k, $5k, above 10k?

Story on the replacement spoiler was car vandalized while owner in U.S. Army , assume but at that point in time would have been a factory /dealer replacement probably no after market ones at that time? Warranty card I have seen and it was the mothers name , also have seen title transferring from Mother to son. I have Known this car since I was 8 always Orange exterior and white interior. Does not have side pipes now but my memory wants to say at one time it did but last i was under car it has duels with H pipe I think.

Pretty sure this is Dan Houde's car. I remember this came up on Ebay about the week after I bought my (since sold) comp green Eliminator 15+ years ago.
I like the hounds tooth interior.

I like the no reserve on it... definitely "watching". Any past history on this one; anyone ever lay eyes on it?
