This was on tonight's show. It's being auctioned now. Over 100 bids so far.

40 Grand come on what is so special about a fastback with hardly any rust With no options. I just do not get it. Slap on a set of nice rims and tires good paint a few motor up grades. You are paying for a name A name that no ever heard until the discorvery channel pick these guys up. 40 Grand That's just crazy. Well good for them When you work hard and go for gold you make happen. Do you think in 20 years that car will be worth 40 grand?

looks like they may have had some serious bids into the 50's before some asshats began f'ing around All the numbers blow my mind

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

It is about the popularity of this show and this being the first car they have done an episode about and then offered for sale. This show is wildly popular. Including, apparently, enough rabid fans who have serious $$.

$106,100! That's crazy money for the fastback. Even the Instrument gauges have the old fogged up lens.

Shilled twice over by the production company. Given the profitability of the show, the production company can afford to buy the car to maintain the ruse, build show interest, and avoid criminal charges.

 

It wouldn't be the first time they fake something of this nature. The Lincoln Mark III they "bought for $5k" was bought for $10k - $5k of the garage's money and $5k of the production company's money, the latter "donation" conveniently not declared on the show.

 

Of all the reality car shows out there, Gas Monkey - besides being one of the weakest offerings (frankly, only Hemmings My Classic Car, Chasing Classic Cars, and Wheeler Dealers are worth their salt) - seems to have the seediest reputation out there, even preceding the existence of Fast and Loud with the HRM scandal (granted, overblown). They have a tendency to overcompensate through bizarre shock value, of which this is simply another form.

 

Fact is, anyone else could create an eBay account as described here - http://www.ecommercebytes.com/C/letters/blog.pl?/pl/2010/8/1280866883.html - and outbid the shills to the tune of $2 million - then fail to pay. Nobody would believe a '71-73 Mustang would bring that kind of money, and the repost of the car would embarrass them if the blogging media were to notice the story unfolding.

P.S.: First time I've seen a glued-in trunk floor patch. Looks ugly, but a good quick-fix for a forum member on a budget. Car looks like it had an older paint resto on it that went to the jambs, and someone put the correct labels on it. Too bad they had to screw with it, because it would look stunning in stock configuration.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:

Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.

Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

One plausible idea that the price went up some(not that stupid over bid amount) is the original family wants the car back. People are willing to pay alot for sentimental when they see a car they know and love up and running drivable again. Seen a number of times over the years.

 

In no way implying anything like the prices that thing has reached. Once it reached 100k it is apparent someone is shill bidding or you have a bunch of phony bids.
