    Derek, I strongly suggest you reach out to Peter Klute at Legendary Motor Car, Dan Spendick at Collector Car Productions and RM Sotheby's - all of the above are world leaders in selling vehicles of stature such as Bill's (and yours for that matter).

    FWIW, my turquoise Monaco (which if people were asked an opinion of here would be priced at $5K) sold for nearly $20K at Dan Spendick's auction.

    This is was news, indeed. Best wishes to his family.
    Unfortunately our hobby seems to be taken up by us older folks and this will happen more as we age.

    Godspeed.

    It’s a great car, it deserves a good home. I was able to see it a Bill's home a couple of years ago. It won’t disappoint the new owner.

    Once I asked Bill if he wants to sell the Fury to me... I was semi serious back then, I think.

    Bill just laughed and said: Yes, I can sell it, but you wouldn't be too happy for the price! :p

    I hope this magnificent car ends up to a good home.

    :(

    Thank you for taking this on and bringing it here Derek. I too would love to see the car go on with someone who had a connection with Bill. :thankyou:

    i only knew Bill through this site, but i think of him often. so hard to believe it was only March. was a better world when Bill was still part of it. i hope he's looking down us from a better place.

    Agreed. I wonder what has happened to the Fury ragtop. That was a beautiful car.

    Last I heard it was still in Idaho where it was sent for a few tweaks. Maybe @Dobalovr knows more.

    With the world we have now, no doubt it's a better place.

    Yeah, I know there were a couple of minor issues with it that Bill was hoping to get fixed.

    @Tobias74 is the one in the know but yes last I heard it was in Idaho. No plans to sell it so far from his family that I am aware of.
