Rare, Rusted Pontiac Tempest Sold for a Whopping Quarter Mil
How is that? How can you do the same?
Well if that “car” you are selling happens to be a 1963 Pontiac Tempest Super Duty Le Mans Coupe you can call yourself a lucky chap. If it you don't have that sort of thing in your garage and you still call the thing that you are selling a “car”, without knowing what type or brand it is, then you'd better start researching.
Our lucky guy thought he was selling old scrap, when some forum specialists ran over it. They alerted the seller and told him what it was. Over night the price rocketed ending up at $226,521.63.
It seems the Tempest was a rare example, and there were only 6 in the world like it. It was raced by a guy called Stan Antlocer from Detriot, Michigan. This car is so rare that if you google it, you won't find too many of them. Or are we just a bit lazy?
Things to note about this car? No engine, no transmission, wrecked tires, 90% rust... basically someone spent 250,000$ on a rusted body with a bit of interior trim and seats. That is one expensive wreck.
It is likely that this car will be restored in pristine condition, and will end up as a super-clean super crisp, orange painted car with a big block V8 developing a trillion horsepower. A bit like Eleanor from Gone in 60 seconds. We might have a picture of what it might look like.
