Evaluation: Older restoration | Excellent paint. The door gaps need adjustment for consistency. The brightwork is all new or restored. The engine is immaculate and has seen negligible use. The underbody has been restored and shows no driving use. The interior upholstery has seen no wear since it was redone. The dash and console components appear original and unrestored. A nearly like-new GSX with 73 good online photographs.
Bottom Line: Reported sold by Mecum at Harrisburg in 2019 for $55,000 (where it was described as having a replacement engine), then reported bid to $72,000 at Leake’s Scottsdale auction four months ago. Bid to $35,500 on May 12; $40,000 on May 13; it reached $75,000 with an hour to go, and faded to the conclusion at that bid. There was no representation here of the originality of the drivetrain—an oversight or a conscious omission by the consignor?
