Hey fellahs, I uploaded pics of this car, and the auction descriptions “for posterity”. These are pics I have from when this car was auctioned at Mecum (Kansas City) back in Dec 2012, but they appear to be using the same ones for the upcoming BJ auction.

*I’ll email BJ and see if they can provide the Marti Report to add to this car’s file.
