It doesnt say that...instead it says.

"As a nearly new truck, this tribute to the past is mechanically ready for the rigors of the daily commute, weekend camping trips or to be parked next to an original in a collection"

The truck is currently in the US and out of customs. They do not have the paperwork to get a U.S. Title. The owner is working to get an exemption because it is one of a few heritage edition trucks. If they don't have the exception by the time of the auction, they will still auction the truck and it will come with a bill of sale and all of the paperwork to continue the exception process.
Sounds like they are hoping for 200k+

I hope the seller (and any potential buyer) has read the rules for importation under the show and display exemption...... (applicable rules in the link below)

http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/impo...2014_r.v.2.pdf

Suffice it to say, that vehicles imported under this exemption are not allowed to be sold without first getting written approval from NHTSA.

Being consigned by a company located a couple miles from my house. They essentially have it imported as a show car, bc it meets a limited production requirement. I talked to them. They said that according to the "show import license," you can't drive it more than 2500 miles a year. I'm sure there are other stipulations they aren't sharing. Very shady that they are failing to mention this very big asterisk. Someone will be very pissed if this isn't disclosed prior to the sale.

"according to" and "this vehicle actually has been approved for" are two very different things.

Seemingly an auction house would vet the paperwork ?

Be interesting to see what binding language is in that bill of sale.

Its funny you say that. The shop in Austin that is doing the body work on my XKE has seen a tremendous increase of restoration business due to the somewhat recent popularity of Mecum, Barrett Jackson, etc. He said that he can't keep up bc people are impulse buying cars at auction and they are in terrible shape beside a recent re-spray. Sound familiar? The auction house claims no liability even though they market the hell out of a car being pristine, perfect, original, frame off restored, etc.... I even know a guy that used to work for Kruse Auctions and he said that they used to seed people (employees) in the crowd to bid up the price on cars. It is a shady world we live in sometimes. You think that there would be some kind of third party inspection service that would at least come in beforehand and grade each car on a scale so that the buyer kind of knows what they are getting. Inspectors do that when you buy a house and it seems to work. Like everything else, there are good and bad, but more often than not, they catch any issues that may be lurking....especially the good ones.

You can pay for one to be there, like my buddy Wayne Carini.

How much does someone like Wayne Carini charge to seek out / inspect / purchase a car for someone? I always wondered that. I assume it is a percentage of the purchase price.

It seems that it would be a smart business move for one of the big auction companies to partner with a third party to do some kind of a rating system on every car they sell. Although it would affect profits initially, you would think that word would get out and their sales would rise b/c people would be more trusting. Large auction companies are a dime a dozen at this point and I would think having an honest third party evaluation of each car they sell would differentiate themselves from the other guy. Hey... What do I know...

Who's buddy is that now ?

Besides the fact that we both look like we came off some sort of all-night bender, you can actually see my 90 over his left shoulder in the pic.
