I'll bet Jay gets awful tired of  his name being brought up every time some car sells at auction for a high price.

Rumor is it's coming East to a private collection.

And there have been bigger sales--maybe not for a Mustang, though. I was in the room when this 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C crossed the block.

The auctioneer:

Do I have one million dollars?

One million.

Two.

Three.

Four.

Five.

Six.

Seven.

Eight.

Nine.

Ten.

Eleven.

Twelve.

Thirteen.

Fourteen.

Selling price: $26.4m.

Hi Ian F,

Yes.  I have read several articles on it.  I'm still not convinced.  I'm sorry if that doesn't go over well with some.  And well yes, it sort of did just pop up on the radar a few years ago.  It wasn't so long ago that even the most die-hard Mustang aficionados did not know of its existence.   To me, for something of such a high degree of provenance, that seems odd.  But I digress, sometimes rare art work just pops up out of nowhere too.  

 

But it was mentioned in a few articles that a few very high-end collectors have known about it for a long time, but kept the info to themselves. It's only been in the last few years that it's become widely known.

$3.4M.  Wow...  I would have expected more.

Don't forget the 10% buyer's premium!  

I assumed that was the difference between the $3.4M in 06HHR's post and the $3.74M in David's post?

It was a couple severe-looking guys who drove up in a black Charger.

Especially when he doesn't have a habit of buying hyped up auction cars.

I'm not surprised it sold for that sort of money, it's probably one of the most iconic movie cars out there. I'm sure the new owner will restore it completely, there would be no reason not to do so.

I predict "the real" Captain America and Billy will resurface any day now with some incredible backstory.  Wealthy boomers need that.
