There were quite a few of these thru the years.

This is Dave and Grumpy with an earlier car.

I was in Grumpy's shop many times.

Very interesting piece of history. Mecum's description is worth the read:

https://www.mecum.com/lots/FL0117-2697 ... pala-z11-old-reliable-iv/

The estimate is $750,000 to $850,000. I'll be surprised if it sells at around that price, if only because race car prices always seem soft—even for the best examples.

I'm not going to Kissimmee. I'd get in trouble there for sure. Nice Impala. Besides I only have $750. We had a 63 283 by the way, back in the 80's.

rarity and provenance... remember, this was a FACTORY built hot rod. Not a normal race car converted from a street car.

Real race cars are valuable... think Cobra, Ferrari, Porsche... those sports racers are seriously valuable.

Yep.

Guess I should have bought one of those from Dave, probably about $1,000 back then.

But, I also should have bought this when it was offered to me for $1,800.
