I’d guess (up to/closer to) $425,000!
After all, it is a Boyd Coddington original, and 1-of-a-kind automotive icon!
Good Luck to all contestants, and Thanks to V8TV for all they do! B)01/09/2015 at #5116MARK websterParticipant

What The Hay? Did you change the rules? I thought we were to guess the bid price and whoever got closest without going over, won.
I thought we were supposed to guess the high bid, not the high bid plus the buyers premium.
I assume that’s how you arrived at the total of $352,000.
My bid was $257,000, so I.m sure I wasn’t the closest bidder, I’m just saying it doesn’t seem right to me.01/18/2015 at #5124
Thanks for the feedback.
I watched the auction go to 350,000 yesterday, but the Barrett-Jackson site shows $352,000. I’m not sure the website price includes the 10% premium, because that would be $35,000 additional, putting it around $335 – $337,000. So either way, it seems $350,000 was closest without going over.
What do you think?01/18/2015 at #5125chrisParticipant
$375,000!!!01/18/2015 at #5127Doug HladyParticipant
That’s a lot of cash for a car. A car that I would think does not get driven a lot. More of a show car. Just my take on it.
It was fun trying to put a price on it.
