Chassis no. 5770072802; Engine no. 5770072802. Dark Blue Metallic with brushed stainless roof over blue leather and cloth. 365/325hp, dual quads, batwing air cleaner, automatic, power everything, air conditioning, Autronic Eye, wheel covers, narrow whitewalls.

Evaluation: Sound older paint and chrome. Good, barely used, upholstery and trunk. Orderly engine compartment. Recently serviced air suspension. A driver quality Eldo Brougham to be approached carefully.

Bottom Line: Reported sold by RM at Auburn Fall four months ago and now offered without reserve here in Arizona with an “ownership interest” notification. Something appears to have gone sideways, but it turned out to be fortuitous, trouncing the high estimate and doubling the reported result at Auburn Fall. The result here is more than surprising, it is astounding.
