“It’s all been picked clean.”
“There’s no more good shit out there.”
“Hotrodding is dead.”
They’re all fucking wrong. Just when you really convince yourself that all the chuckleheads standing around at a meet-n-greet –– complaining about how all the gennie tin and OG speed shit has been picked clean and “ePay” is the ruination of hotrodding –– might actually be on to something, something like this barn-fresh ’32 Vicky gasser gets pulled out into the boiling Arizona sunshine.
Yes, this car is being sold on eBay. Yes, it’s being sold by a guy who knows what he’s got. No, you’re not gonna get some sort of screamin’ deal on it –– the bids are just north of $28 Large and the reserve ain’t been met and we’re guessing it’s gonna at least double that before the weeping and teeth-gnashing is over. But, this guy in Tucson has at least bolted up a decently period-correct 327 with some rare parts thrown in for good measure and it’s about as perfect as it can get. And remember: most of the great stuff on this car hasn’t been made in generations, so there’s not much chance of these parts (and the sum of them) ever losing value.
Anyway, take a look at the auction (here) to find out more –– hell, the vintage Mexican upholstery is probably worth its weight in gold (naugahyde). And thanks for the tip, Robbie!
