Evaluation: From the Gary Edwards collection. Not much history represented and if it was matching numbers it would have been represented as such, but it has been restored to high standards. The front bumper fits well, the paint is clean and blemish-free, and the roof vinyl is tight. The interior and underbody look fresh as well.
Bottom Line: Although this collection’s 4-speed Hemi Daytona broke a world record in Kissimmee, most of the 19(!) other winged Mopars there this year sold well under their estimates. Still high compared to aero Mopar values just a year ago, but not home run prices, including this one.
This car also provides a decent glimpse into how Hemi values have really bounced around over the years. It sold in Scottsdale in 2006 for $379,500 and again there the following year for $330,000. Post-recession, at Mecum Indy in 2012, it brought just $177,550. What goes up in the car world doesn’t often come down, but sometimes it does, and it will be interesting to what happens to high-dollar muscle in the coming months.
