    Wrong toolkit of course, but otherwise it looks very nice (lovely colour:)). The phrase "the next owner should anticipate further mechanical attention before use" rings alarm bells.:(

    Unfortunately, it was not repainted in its original Blue Dino Metallizzato. The interior is odd. Light gray leather now (should have been beige/Sabbia) and from the photos (and the catalog itself for the current auction which I have) the doors are finished in light gray AND beige/Sabbia just above the door pockets. I have extra leather though that would complete it in the original interior color! And I have a NOS AC system if there are problems with the AC on this one.

    The Gooding website says it sold for $240,800, but that doesn't appear to include the Gooding buyer's commission.

    Yes, it does include the comission. The hammer price was only 215,000 USD if I remember correctly. Bidding was very tentative.

    Agreed it had a weak sales appeal. It needed both interior and exterior refurbishment. Still, not an impossible car, though.

    I consider it a somewhat reasonable deal for the buyer.

    The buyer paid $ 240 K and if he adds another $ 200 K (at least) for a nice restoration he will end up with $ 440 K or more.

    I don't know where to spent 200k in a normal Dino restoration, beside the fascinating projects of Matthias.
    But sure, everybody can spend as much money as he like to do.

    I dont know what the coat would be but this car needed some significant work to be a number 2 car ..I would have rather paid 350 or so for a nicely done car

    Again - I contend that finding a nicely done car for 350k is a bit tough. And I mean this in the good spirit of loving these cars and being a relatively new owner - I am coming up on a year of ownership and I looked and shopped on and off for a few years and I continue to look for them as a hobby and fascination.

    There are very few cars on the market - a good sign for owners - when I was looking I paid for 2 private inspections on cars I didn't buy and I saw the one first hand that I ultimately bought.

    The brokers, weasels and collectors I chat with all seem to feel like the DINO market is on a gradual rise. After watching Barrett Jackson this weekend - (total apples to our oranges I know) but I feel like the collector car hobby is really strong right now.
