Do you think folks have already started parting out Bosses, Shelbies etc just for e-Bay?
A guy I know is selling a 70 Boss for about $35,000. Heck, he could probably sell the complete air cleaner / shaker assembly for $10,000!

That bubble has GOT to burst sometime. These old musclecars peaked once and bottomed out when the foreigners started buying them as investments....

At those prices, people WILL start making reproduction pieces for those cars. It's just out of hand. The math simply isn't adding up.

Let's see, back in ohhhhh, 1984'ish I borrowed $600 from my mom to purchase a 1971 boss 351 mustang, the engine was missing and so was the ram air hood, but I didn't care, heck it had a toploader 4sp and 3.91:1 gears! the boss emblems on the side and rear was a bonus. After sticking my motor in it and racing around town a bunch of times I sold it for $1,500. At that time it was "damaged goods" because it didn't have the original engine in it. Through the years I've gotten numerous calls as the title has changed hands, all the same question: "Do you know where the original engine might be?" (the needle in a haystack).
It's been about 10 years since the last call, so I'm expecting it to come real soon.

My how times have changed! What we once thought of as junk and threw away is now gold.

Didn't I read in Mustangs And Fords a few issues ago that somebody found this same piece on the ground at a junk yard and paid $15 for it?

You got one?

The Boss 302 is supposed to be the hardest one to find.

Wonder what I could get for my removable hard top. For those of you who haven't seen it, clik on my members photo and you'll see a genuine prototype removable hardtop that was going to be offered with the 65 Convertibles It fits on a 66 too. It was one of the last items to be cut before production of the 64 1/2s were started. Rear glass has an original coupe rear window in it. (SunX Tinted I might add) Top is black wrinkled vinyl. Needs a new head liner. Legend has it that a man from L.I. was commissioned by Ford to make them for the prototypes( I believe he was responsible for making mold for the Corvettes too.)
When the man died, he had stipulated in his will that the mold was to be burned and his family complied with that request.

If that's not a record, this sure must be:

Muscle Cars
'Cuda owner rejects $4.1 million offer

If you owned the last Hemi 'Cuda convertible ever built, would you have let it go for $4.5 million? Its current owner didn't.
At the Rand/Workman Fine Motor Auction & Luxury Lifestyle Expo last weekend in New York City, the very last Hemi 'Cuda convertible ever built did not sell, despite attracting a bid of $4.1 million.
That is not a misprint. The seller refused to part with this rare muscle car which was built on May 28, 1971--one of two sent to Europe.
The Sno-white 'Cuda is one of eleven of its kind manufactured in 1971 and just one of eight with an automatic transmission. It also boasts black leather seats, Rally gauges, center console, power brakes, hood pins, and it still retains its original Kilometer speedometer. It is also one of two Hemi 'Cudas built with factory billboard stripes.
Last year, a 1971 Hemi 'Cuda convertible sold for $3 million, so it's anybody's guess where this craziness will end. At the same auction, the seller of the Pete Estes one-off 1968 Camaro Z/28 convertible refused a bid of $1.1 million. To view the original listing for the 'Cuda go to www.randworkman.com. To view other cars up for grabs at the event visit: www.randworkman.com/featured_event
