Prices for the Montreal must have really fallen through the floor. The ultra rare Montreal prototype, serial number 2, "sold" yesterday evening on eBay with little fanfare and very little (likely no real) money. Admittedly I did not even notice that it had been relisted again!

I know that Peter tried to buy back his old car and we all tried to let eBay know that this auction was a total scam but do you think anyone at the giant auction house "Feebay" could be reached?

Hi Mark, It might just be that this car has had too much publicity on EBay, that the photos never change, and if it's too good to be true......

Here is a nice looking example in Hemmings for $137,500, firm, from Italy:

Well at least the 'winner' of the auction realized that the "seller" did not have a car to sell. He got to leave the 'seller' negative feedback! Also a nice little note: Caution cheater! No vehicle, title forged!

eBay Feedback Profile for bal5763_jtcnprvjcf

It is doubtful that the pre-production Montreal will be listed under this 'sellers' I.D. again with that negative feedback message!

Don's car was bid up to $90,500 on Bring A Trailer and did not meet his reserve.

I already have a commitment at my full reserve, and a backup if that agreement fails to appear in cash. It all came together within hours of the conclusion of the auction.

Cams

Don, what were the cams in the motor? Didn`t appear to be stock?

The cams in the motor were essentially stock re-works by Webcam. As I recall, the various lift and profile numbers were essentially unchanged, but with the changes in ramps that allowed somewhat tighter clearances, with the subtle changes that provides. I asked them for a "stock" rebuild, and this was their recommendation.

When I get around to building up the boat motor, I'll need to consider a lower RPM, higher torque set of cams to best accommodate the available transmissions, most of which recommend a limit of 5,700 RPM.

It ain't over....

Thanks. But, as we all know, it ain't over until it's over. When the money shows up, then it's nearly over.

Well from what I remember Don got a worthy price for his car. Can't remember the number though.

Here is something at the other end of the spectrum but I think worthy of a rebuild. I know I am a bit crazy with basketcases though so don't question my sanity!

Châssis n° 1427081 sold for 15000 euro. Great colour and looks complete but dang I reckon there will be a lot of rust. If it were in Australia I know a few that would have ponied up to buy it.

the derričre of a burnt out Miura also sold for 150000 euro....

I hope I'm allowed to mention it here, it's it F/S section though;
I've got a solid driver 73, that looks good, with nice interior. It's great to drive now, don't need to restore to enjoy.
I thinks it best to buy a runner, drive the hail out of it and learn it, THEN restore if needs be.
$68K firm.

Some interesting "solutions" on this one. Low-pressure, plastic fuel filter inline between main filter and Spica. Secondary brake booster?! I can understand the desire for better braking in the stock Montreal, but believe it is the insufficient front pad area rather than high pedal pressure that is the problem.

As the seller notes, it's being offered with a reasonable starting price. Probably a good starting spot.

I was the back-up bidder on the red eBay car. That's the third time I've been the bridesmaid in the past four months. First with Don's car. Then with a live auction in Colorado in which I was an absentee bidder. Now this. It seems there's always someone who wants the Montreal a little bit more that I do.
