Just sold yesterday for $186,500 including premium at Bonham's auction. Gullwing Motors is never slow in flipping a car. I wonder if they bought the spare Tipo 8A engine as well? It sold for just under $10,000.

Bonhams 1793 : Ex-Nathan Clark and Gerry Albertini, one-of-two Lancefield bodied Isottas, offered publicly for the first time since 1961,1931 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Two-Door Faux Cabriolet Chassis no. 1677 Engine no. 1677

Interesting post. No argument that dealers bring a certain value by bringing cars to market that may otherwise be missed, trading opportunities, etc. but sometimes it is funny when you can see what they likely paid vs. what the asking prices are. Case in point in this month's HMN, there is an ad for a Morgan that was likely placed by the car's owner prior to selling (as far as I can see) to the above dealer. Owner ad describes car in great detail $18,500. GW ad one or two down describes what is clearly the EXACT same car, mile, history, etc. for $23,500... Hmmm...

Of course these guys are in business to make a profit, it is just funny to see that once in a while. :D
