Chassis no. SCAYJ42A7HCX10401; Engine no. 10401. Acrylic white with white vinyl roof over Scarlett Nuella leather. 6750-cc, 220hp, automatic, walnut trim, Everflex roof, aftermarket radio, books, jack and spare, four glass tumblers beneath the rear armrest.

Evaluation: First of 12 “Final Edition” Camargues, all finished in these colors. Delivered new to Frederick “Ted” Field (heir to the Marshall Field fortune, film producer, and founder of Interscope Racing) and fitted with bulletproof bodywork and windows prior to delivery. Recent full service. Good paint with minor chips and touch ups. Roof vinyl looks excellent. Slight delamination on the rear window and windshield. Beautiful interior with excellent wood on the dash, but the wood on the door panels has some slight cracking and delamination. Light scuffs on the door sills. Good leather with light wear. Tidy engine bay and underbody with age and wear corresponding with the 20,510 miles. Located in Indiana.

Bottom Line: In 1987 Field sold studio camera producer Panavision for $100 million just three years after buying it for $52.5 million. This Camargue Final Edition could well have been a celebration of nearly doubling his money in three years. It may also explain the bulletproof treatment: he needed an armored car to transport all that money. The history, low miles and treatment support the modest premium brought by this example over similar “Final Edition” Camargues.
