Default 58 Barn Find Sold Saturday

I was at an estate auction in Milton Ontario yesterday where a 58 that had been sitting over 30 years was auctioned and sold for $37,500.00 plus 10% buy fee plus Tax of 13% on the total. That is Canadian dollars which are trading at 1.03 US dollars .
The car was pretty much complete and in need of a total rebuild . No where near driver comdition.

I took a couple of pictures that I could send to someone who could post them if they send me their e-mail adress

Someone sure had auction fever at that one. It only takes two fools. The next thing he'll have is buyer's remorse.....

Adding bad to worse, this car had no ownership papers.

That's not the way the Kijiji ad read......maybe they found the title after the ad was published.

Has anyone checked out these 2 63s?? Frames, birdcage would be my first concern. Restomod anyone? Does anyone have photos of the 2-63s?
Will these sell separately?
Anyones guess what they will sell for?
My guess, with proper advertising, 32-36K. This is not what I would pay. This is what happens at these estate auctions. People swimming in money, have never gone through a restoration of these old cars, will pay for their first time.
They want their own Corvette project car.
Throw your value guides in the trash.http://www.muncysells.com/auction_detail.php?id=153137
Thanks
DG
