XR7-G Salvage up for Auction

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

So the auction link doesn't bring up anything any longer. Says page not available. Thought the auction wasn't suppose to start until today? Wonder if someone became a "proud" owner? Just curious....

So I think there are about three separate threads now on this one topic. Think I read in one of them that this sold for 100 bucks?
Did Spacoli buy it? :)
