Don't need to say much more....

I'm sure I'm not the only one who wishes that I was the person who sold it, or was able to afford buying it.... LOL

Cheers,
Corey

Reuters is saying $905,000.

Either way that is a bit outside my price range Smile

That's the out of the door price when they pay all the fees.

The party who won, bid 750k.

The purchaser (The Henry Ford organization) paid $905,000. This included the $155,000 buyer
premium to the auction house.

There is some more information regarding The Henry Ford and their plans:

I am curious who the bidder was on the phone, they seemed to take their time as the price climbed.
The Henry Ford organization bidder seemed to be authorized to go higher as their responses were
much more rapid.

The seller, and auction house, owe quite a bit to Corey, he did a really nice job of displaying it
appropriately. That likely made a significant difference in the final price.
