Cool

By the way Rob it was actually Milpitas and not San Jose, but because Milpitas is right next to San Jose I guess they thought that it would be better to refer to it as the San Jose plant. I find it interesting that they kept the "R" plant designation in the v.i.n. and didn't change it to an "S" when they moved the plant from Richmond to San Jose (Milpitas). They obviously couldn't use the "M" for Milpitas because it would have been confused with Metuchen even though they used a "T" designation for the Metuchen plant which was actually located in Edison, New Jersey. Go figure why they did what they did :-)

Cheers,

Ron

Didn't this sell the first time around? .... or was a reserve not met?

My Garage
am perplexed, and have to ask this question...
How is it that this car first sold for 18.2K, then was rear ended (minor quarter panel damage per owner), repainted, and then sold for over 28K?

I am not disparaging the car, a one owner (technically 2 if you count the dealer who bought it), its a great car.. I just don't see how the price could jump that drastically....it was repainted without the original hood.

Especially in light of the fact that the current one on ebay, seemingly an original and nice car, has a buy it now of 25???

Is it a color thing? (red vs. Ivy gold?)
The red one had a 289-2v, the Ivy gold a 302? am I missing something?

I am scratching my head on this, can anyone enlighten me?

As I understand the scenario the car was sideswiped a little between the first and second eBay auctions. I don't know if it was totaled after that.

Donna found out that it was repaired at Mustang Country International.

Here are photos of the original hood and the recent damage.

According to eBay the buyer in the original May 4th auction (the $18,200 sale) didn't follow through. The car was then relisted and sold on July 2nd for $17,600.
