Evaluation: Represented as the matching numbers engine and first owned by Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner, supposedly gifted to him by Stanley Arnolt himself. Sound old paint and upholstery. Dirty undercoated chassis and underbody. Dull, dusty gauges. Several event stickers attest both to the purpose and the use of this Bolide.
Bottom Line: The Hefner/Playboy connection is somewhat ephemeral but still good for starting a conversation at a car show. Its celebrity history is not reflected in the price it brought, which is a representative result for a Bolide Deluxe.
