Chassis no. 1P3EW65F2VV300010. Prowler Purple over black leather. 215/214hp V-6, automatic, AutoMeter tach mounted on the column, matching trailer. Comes with original window sticker.

Evaluation: Represented as a one-owner car with just 225 miles and its original Goodyear tires. Light wrinkling on the driver’s seat but otherwise nothing to criticize.

Bottom Line: While represented with a single owner here, this car was also reported sold through RM’s Online Only Driving Into Summer sale back in March 2020 (with 244 miles showing) for $33,000. We noted a small scratch on the left rear fender and one more on the trailer at the time thanks to RM’s much more helpful photos and description. We were also relatively surprised at that modest price, since the car ticks all the right boxes for a serious collector, including the matching trailer, which cost about 5 grand new and only went with about 12 percent of the Prowlers built.

This may be an example of a car that benefits from an in-person format—it got a lot more attention crossing the block at Kissimmee, bringing the highest price we’ve ever seen for a stock Prowler. A day later, country singer George Jones’s Prowler (Lot S172) sold for $49,500 while another 6,100-mile car (Lot W147) sold for $33,000 earlier in the sale on Wednesday, so this was a great week to be selling one of these retro roadsters.
