#1 OBL prices are insane

Post by lopena » Thu Jul 14, 2022 2:20 pm

Gooding & Co are offering two OBL E-types, one coupe, one roadster, at their August Pebble Beach auction.
Now I understand that it’s Pebble Beach, where prices are always higher than the market in general. I also understand that auction estimates are often wishful thinking on the part of the auction house, but a $600,000-700,000 estimate for the FHC and a $500,000-600,000 estimate for the OTS seem wildly optimistic in my mind.

Thoughts?

At that price I would hope the bonnet would fit better than the coupe currently shows…. :roll:

Might have taken five minutes to align the wipers on the FHC correctly too......

And I'm trying to decide whether the wonky over-riders are cack-handed or someone's attempt to be 'factory original'..... :doh:

still not for me, but at €385.000, this OBL-OTS seems a bargain in comparison 😋

The exhaust hangs a bit low, though... :wrench:
