I have no personal interest or stake in the eventual sale of this 1928 Willys-Knight sedan.  Note: My references suggest this is a Model 66A, the largest Willys-Knight on either a 126" or 135" wheelbase.

I do believe you are correct that the 66A was the big boy for 1928 followed by the more famous 66B in 29/30 and the Plaid side.

Thanks A.J. for the verification.  Wonder if it could be the 135" wheelbase model?

I was wondering that myself.  Looks to be a decent wheelbase.

How much of what goes on here has anything to do with reality?

None, in a word.   Best case for this W-K 66A is a hardcore Willys-Knight enthusiast buys it, restores it cost-be-damned as an act of historic preservation.  Not likely to happen, more likely to end up a pile of mechanical parts after someone eviscerates it and 'upgrades' it to be a 'really cool rod...'

Sadly it’s more likely that the motor is removed and made into a cut-away.

They are neat cars, but what a challenging project of something with marginal value (Ed makes good points !!!) - everyone likes a stray puppy, but ....

Just curious of the cost to rebuild that sleeve valve engine.

I am not sure many need rebuilt - most I know are just driving around original cars with various stages of cosmetic restoration.   I assume the standard 10K plus for a block alone without accessories or detailing.
