    Time to corner the market on a 70 300H!

    It would be cool to see all of these on the road at the same time.

    Do any members “down south” know the history on these Hursts?

    https://www.premierauctiongroup.com/vehicles?utf8=✓&q[short_description_or_long_description_or_ftx_search_cont]=Hurst


    There’s also this article on the cars:

    FOUR limited edition fuselage muscle cars hit the auction block

    At “no reserve” and with 4 cars to choose from, it might be a chance to get a good deal on a decent 300-Hurst. Comfortable and cool to drive!

    Weren't all of these on eBay by the same seller over the past year?

    Am I thinking correctly here??? 4 very similar Chryslers, or anything for that matter. This has to be the worst way to sell them, right?? Isn't this guy watering down his own market by trying to offload them at the same time, in the same place?? I'd think he'd have better luck signing up with four different auctioneers in four different corners of the US ( or even further). My two cents, will be watching.

    Yes. All four were at Kissimmee last year. I know the owner somewhat. He said to me "They kinda find me and follow me around." with a laugh. He's a broker/flipper for all sorts of collector cars, decent sort of guy. He's not much a mechanical repair guy, but he's hell with 1500 grit and a buffer.

    One of the cars is the restored beauty we saw in this article, where the seller was asking $85K or so on eBay: https://www.streetmusclemag.com/news/rare-rides-the-1970-chrysler-300-hurst/ It reached about $56K at Kissimmee last year and the seller didn't release the reserve price. Same car was at Indy 2019, no sale at $45K.

    Of the other three, one is "pretty good" and the other two need some work, being FAR from showcar condition. None are total junk. I have many detail pictures of all four, but don't know which is which, as that didn't matter to me. I was building a reference collection of pics for use with my car.

    That $66k that Hagerty mentioned for the 2018 car? The gavel would have been $60K. The additional $6K of that (10 percent) is the buyer's premium fee.

    My car gaveled at $51K at Mecum Indy 2018 when the reserve came off, making it $56,100 with fee. I feel that's the basic going rate for one of these cars in top visual and mechanical condition. I think the restoration problem with the Hursts is that if you buy one in "$16K condition", you have 3+ years and $50+K worth of body and unique paint/stripe work on your hands, assuming the unobtainable glass hood and roof is in good shape and assuming you're not chasing the typical mechanical, AC and electrical woes....add $5-10K for that as we all know. Or the unique wheel paint job. Or restoring the Imperial interior vs. a 300 interior. It could really add up if you buy any of the heaps we've seen over the last 9 months.

    So, I think that's why we see about 10 cars floating around the $55-65K mark, with the rest at $20K or much less for the heaps. The step-up cost to reach a nice showcar status is pretty steep. If you're not interested in the showcar aspect, you'd most likely choose a very nice 300 and happily enjoy it without the Hurst livery. After all, they're all the same at heart!

    My two-cents, anyway.

    A very good point, and I generally agree. But the condition of the four is quite different from each other, so maybe like at any store, the buyer can pick his price range for "similar" items?

    But yeah, we'll be watching.

    These are the cars that were for sale at Streetside Classics. Asking price ranged from high 30K’s to mid 80K’s. The one with the underdash aftermarket AC is Canadian car, the one nut-and-bolt restored by a brother of a member.

    This one only brought $31,000 at Barrett Jackson last year or maybe the year before.

    Stretched with Lambo doors to put the car show display shit in because the trunk is maxed out with hydraulics and sound equipment.

    Believe they were yes, they look very familiar.

    Believe this car was part of a "Rare Finds" article in a magazine, forgot what one. Believe the guy is from Florida if I remember right. I got the article somewhere

    Please let us know how the sales go. As I don't have the channel to watch the auction on tv if this auction is on tv. Be interesting to see the SC/Rambler sell too.

    It would be great to know which is which as far as condition. I would be concerned about shill bidders, original miles or not, and any hidden problems.

    I don't think a vinyl top belongs on one of these cars, don't get me wrong it looks great. So does the car. But the top takes away from the "muscle-car" feel especially if it says "Hurst" on it. Just my 2 cents.

    It will not be on television. It is an interesting picture to see four of these things lined up at some swell mansion. I'll be hoping they all sell for $99K. Individually, not as a group buy!!! :eek:
