The 170 V Cab A I restored over 20 years ago is up for sale at RM Amelia Island. I haven't seen it since I sold it in 2006. It's being sold no reserve, price range $ 130-160 which I think is a little low, but I am biased of course. I do know that to restore it now, the cost would be multiples of that price. I heard that Jamie Wyeth wasn't using it much so he decided to sell it. He owns two other cars I restored, a 1952 170 Sb Sedan and a 1950 170 S Cab B. Personally I would have kept the 170V and sold one of these.

 

I'm not going to Amelia this year, might have gone to see the car sold off, but I didn't know it was being auctioned until the other day. If anyone is going I'd be interested in hearing how it is looking these days.

Hey Henry,  I wish we did that package deal we were talking about so many years ago :)

Agreed Craig.  They got rid of the whitewalls and it almost makes the red acceptable.   A black top with the correct chromed brass trim instead of wire-on and we are really in business.

A tad over 700k all in.  Not bad for a 40 plus year old restoration.
