A beauty, NICELY optioned. I wonder when the restoration was done. I would assume that if it was done by an MCA member it was done correctly. I'd like to see photos of the suspension & belly. Since my physical mobility is limited now, Id be tempted.

I wonder what that is in the driver's door jamb? Anti-theft?

I think the owner that had it in the movie use to be on this forum. Arlie should know.

I've contacted the owner (Chad _?___). I have questions too.

2009 ish info on this car. I believe this car was under a tent at an auction in 2010 and sustained damage due to the wind taking the tent down.

I don't have a Marti Report for this one.
Here's a link to the 2011 Mecum auction, where it sold for $35,000.

There is a black blob on the driver's door jamb but it may be the light switch.

I am guessing the black is tape covering the tilt steering switch. The driver's door latch is the incorrect finish and the seat back leaver is upside down. It looks like a nice car, but I would check it over very carefully. Especially the damage repaired portion.

I was able to track down the PO of the Gold GT/CS that did the restoration and was then damaged at the Russo-Steele Auction in 2010. He informed me that the damage was minimal (superficial paint scuffing from the tent). The car was then repainted and sold at a Mecum Auction in 2011 for $35K.
That buyer now has the car listed for sale for $45K
