With a little less than 2 days to go, the bidding on this '65 2+2 convertible is up to $13,952 (and 26 cents!). So, where's the price ceiling on this car?
Pretty cool color combination if you ask me. The non-original tri-power set up, automatic transmission and manually operated top (weren't power tops standard on all full-size GM convertibles back then?) probably keeps the hard-core muscle car guys &/or collectors away and thus keeps the value from attaining orbit status.
This car seems to look good in all the right places. If only it had a 6-way power drivers seat!
$14,100 didn't take it (at least officially). Interesting that the seller reduced his reserve during the bidding process. If $14,100 did meeting the reserve, I shudder to think what the original reserve was.
I'm generally not too much into resto-mods (particularly a hardtop), but this one looks pretty neat. If you can believe what you read, sounds like its been fairly well sorted out. However, I do love the quote "BEING A PONTIAC, IT DRIPS A LITTLE OIL AROUND THE REAR MAIN". What's being a Pontiac have to do with it? Either it needs fixed or it doesn't, period.
Yeah, that sure looks via pics to be a very nice one (I have a soft spot for '64s, having owned 3). Note that the A/C is aftermarket, not factory.
""BEING A PONTIAC, IT DRIPS A LITTLE OIL AROUND THE REAR MAIN". What's being a Pontiac have to do with it? Either it needs fixed or it doesn't, period."Pontiac's do tend to leak at the rear main seal- tho by no means do they all (none of my 3 did). It's a minor annoyance, especially compared to removing the engine & trans to fix. Many people would rather put a mat on the garage floor and carry a quart or 2 with them instead of footing the $$$ bill for R&R.
I get your point, Mr S, about "they all voted no", but that was only the people who happened to click on that auction during those 7 days. Those are not neccessarily all the potential future owners of the car... or in other words '100% of that car's market'. One 7-day auction cannot establish the true average market value of a given make/year/model of vehicle. Don't forget a great many of the auction's counter's hits were very likely multiples by the same parties- so even the hits reflects less potentials than it shows.
