Evaluation: Unrestored original | Represented as having under 35,000 miles. The pictures, better than most in the auction, show a lightly creased driver’s seat, a discolored rear deck where the power roof sits, unblemished paint except for a highlighted scuff inside the left exhaust outlets, light road rash to the underbody, and clear headlight covers.
Bottom Line: Bid to $46,000 on May 12 and $46,500 on May 13; it jumped to $65,000 with just under three minutes left and met reserve a few seconds later. California values are fading like Sebastian Vettel’s career, but this is a particularly low result—on the surface, a serious value for a car with no noted CarFax issues. Call it wholesale price.
