1986 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet
Lot # 211 1986 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet, Body by Pininfarina; S/N ZFFXC26A6G0065495; Red/Tan leather; Black cloth top; Unrestored original, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $24,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $26,400. No Reserve – Alpine stereo, alarm. – Engine out belt service at 20,071 miles, odometer now shows 25,750, but how along ago the belt service was is not stated. Clean CarFax, good original paint, new top. – Mondials just don’t get much respect but they are a wonderful way to own a mid-engined, good performing Ferrari with much more flexibility and usability than their fixed roof 328 siblings. This is a reasonable price for a well-maintained, highly original example with at least an honest attempt to keep up with its maintenance needs.
1930 Ford Model A Closed Cab Pickup
Lot # 93 1930 Ford Model A Closed Cab Pickup; S/N A4144694; Red, Black fenders/Black leatherette; Truck restoration, 3 condition; Hammered Sold at $23,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $25,300.

Orderly but aged underhood. Represented as all Ford steel. A usable truck done to a price and showing its age. – More attractive at a distance than it is up close; the steel wheels and larger tires don’t add anything except better ride. The price is all the money for a closed cab Model A pickup in this condition.
1969 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup
Lot # 850 1969 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup; S/N CE149B841121; Blue, Silver/Black vinyl, velour; Modified restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $22,500 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $24,750.

Orderly underhood and like new chassis and underbody. Good body fits except the passenger’s, door that doesn’t close flush. Thoroughly done to nearly like new. – A good, sound truck with desirable upgrades that should be satisfying to use, reliable and comfortable. It would be impossible to duplicate it for this price so if a good, usable truck is the objective this is the right way to get it.
1966 Cadillac De Ville 2-Dr. Hardtop
Lot # 99 1966 Cadillac De Ville 2-Dr. Hardtop; S/N J6200404; Black, Black vinyl roof/Black leather; Visually maintained, largely original, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $22,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $24,200.

If the underbody had been done this one-repaint Cadillac would look like a restored and carefully used car. – In so many ways a better Cadillac than most of its surviving contemporaries, especially for never having felt the touch of a well-intentioned attempt at restoration and it brought a superior price appropriate to its condition, equipment and preservation. The premium of a few thousand dollars is fully deserved.
1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible
Lot # 316 1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible; S/N 223679L119141; White/Black vinyl; Black vinyl top; Visually maintained, largely original, 4 condition; Hammered Sold at $21,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $23,100.

Point spots on driver’s seat. Tired, stretched original upholstery, Dry old underbody with exterior overspray. Represented as numbers matching, with PHS documents. Not even a good driver. – Something about this White Firebird brought out the bidders’ enthusiasm and earned it a premium price. The premium is modest, but not as modest as the car.
1972 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Utility
Lot # 132 1972 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Utility; S/N FK40126083; Red/Black leatherette; Modified restoration, 3 condition; Hammered Sold at $20,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $22,000.

Fair old upholstery. Matte black bedliner sprayed all over the inside of the body. Underbody and chassis sprayed with undercoat over old, peeling undercoat. Fresh paint is like lipstick on a pig. – The first of nine FJs to cross the B-J Las Vegas auction block, and one not one of the better ones, this price falls neatly in line with the Las Vegas FJ market. The diamond plate bits aren’t reassuring about the quantity of original sheet metal.

No Reserve – 260/164hp with 4-barrel carb, 4-speed, P/S, pushbutton factory radio, underdash cassette stereo, dashtop tach, buckets and console, wire wheel covers, chrome engine dressup. – Good repaint and interior, polished chrome and stainless. Orderly but aged engine compartment. Old undercoat in wheelwells. An unusual little driver quality Falcon. – This is more car than the money it brought, not by a lot but by enough to call it a good value.

Lot # 352 1976 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Utility; S/N FJ40207646; White, Maroon roof/Black leatherette; Older restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $19,500 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $21,450.

Center facing rear seats, grey steel wheels, hubcaps, Warn front hubs, 33-inch Mud Terrain T/A tires, K&N air filter, tube headers, rear-mounted spare. – Good paint and interior. Orderly underhood with a polished valve cover and brake master cylinder. A little dusty, with mild surface oxidation underhood and on the chassis. Well done a while ago with limited subsequent use. – This FJ hasn’t seen any back country offroading since it was done and it represents very good value for the money. It’s not fresh, but it could be fresher with a bit more attention to the hard to reach places.

  1. Thanks for the article Rick , and as for Tom Barret he was a real character , the L.A Times once called him the P.T Barnum of the Classic car world , and I knew him well , I remember staying at his house in Scotsdale and we were in his golf cart riding around his garages looking at his fantastc cars when I spotted an old beat up Cadillac Limo I said ” Tom what’s that thing doing here ? ” Tom replied ” Thats Elvis Preslys 1978 Cadillac Limosine ” I thought for a moment then said ” But Tom Elvis died in 1977 ” Tom came back straight away with ” Yeah , but he order it before he died ! ” a true salesman !

  2. Comparing old Corvette price degradation with that of gold is a poor comparison compared to the stock market in general. In the same time frame (4 years) that Corvette prices have gone down hill, the same money invested in the S&P 500 has done outstandingly well. Most old cars are very poor investments.
