So boys, let's hear what you think it will go for. It's at $25,000 and hasn't reached the reserve. I'm thinking the reserve is probably around $30,000/$45,000 since it's running a small block and I'll throw out a selling price of $65,000/$70,000 since it does have a lot of documented history.

Not sure that his claim to "famous drag car" holds much water, as I wonder how many guys would even recognize it, or the name before doing a Google search? As a strictly fast drag car, it's pretty neat. And being titled and a steel cab, it adds value. But without history prior to the last two decades, I'm not sure it's provenance means much, or adds much to the value?
My guess is it wont break $40k, and I'd say $35k-$40k, if the reserve isn't higher, and stops it from selling.

You're right Vall. No history back into the '60's. Which doesn't make it worth much. BUT! It seems the gasser craze is still going full bore. And a steel Willys commands top dollar.

Yes, although a Willy truck wont usually bring anything close to what a Willys coupe brings. Just like a Willys sedan wont bring anything close to what a coupe or a truck brings. That kinda holds true for all old cars for the most part. Coupes bring the top dollar, followed by pickups, and then sedans. And of course 4 dr. sdn. bring the least of all in most cases.

Well, it reached the sellers reserve which was probably $28,000 because the bid is at $28,100 and the reserve is gone. Depending on how the bidding goes now that the reserve is off it'll be interesting to see if the numbers go up substantially or not.

Getting down to the last 8 hrs., so now the serious bidders should be giving it their best shot, if they still want it. About ready to break $30k now.

Well Jesus, I couldn't have been more wrong on my guesstimates. It sold for $30,100; $100 more than my LOW estimate for the reserve. I need to start taking some of those brain power pills!!!
