There is a trick to the trade. The auctioneer has assistants in the "crowd" to ghost bid to raise  the price. Especially the small time guys. Online bidding is no different. Bidding in a crowd is worse where some bidders want to show off " I have more money than you" especially if his girlfriend is around . It is a psychological game to some extent. Auctioneers have sleepers in the crowd to do that. Experience buyers will only pay what he think it is worth or just walk away.

well Ive seen this happen 2x on ebay and the shock factor was wowzer!

 

once a crapped out 58 porsche speedster hit a crazy number and only the vin tag and title were useable and the 2nd time was when a fella bought a house and there was an early 60s body in the garage-no motor. chrysler product.

it ended up being one of the lost 10 that was built by the factory for the drag strip. plexi windows etc. the owner had no idea and the bidders prompted him with what to look for. it went for over 500k........................................

he more then got a free house.

It will be relisted due to non-paying bidder. That was not a realistic bid, someone was playing around. My guess is that the seller had two buddies he asked to bid on it to drive up the price but they weren't told about each other and were pushing numbers up without knowing they were working against each other.

actually the owner wrote me back when I asked him- said it was a computer glitch and that it actually sold for 10k.

 

never heard of that happening before....... guess it's possible.

 

 

," average price is still $52K."

 

good luck with that average, the prices are dropping like crazy!

Some very nice examples can be bought for around 30G.  We are talking # 3 or better cars with nice paint chrome and correct interiors.  52G. Will buy you a very , very nice car.  Probably a near perfect frame off restored car.  Even some nice convertibles can be had around 50 with some looking. 

I think i have even seen fuel injected cars in super nice restored condition for 100G or less. 

I can't recall a single 57 Chevy I've ever seen hitting the 375G mark.

Anyone can ask any price on a vehicle, but there are about 7 '57 Chevys on Hemmings right now between $150K and $225K.
I don't think they're anywhere near worth that, but perhaps some folk are willing to open their wallets in this price range.
