There just had to be one more bizarro ad before the end of this crazy year and I think this one qualifies.

I'm gonna say his asking price is about $74,950 too high for this meager pile of scrap yet oddly, he has a title.....

1954 Cadillac Le Mans. I bought these parts years ago from a friend of mine who found them in Southern California. I always intended to recreate this vehicle but I am old now and dont have the money I did 10 years ago.

All the details and many pictures are at a website that we created to clarify what we have. Go to:

This will tell you the story of this vehicle and the parts that I have to this extremely rare and desirable car.

The parts that I have are from the Le Mans that was modified by George Barris for Harry Carl, the shoe king of LA. Most of the vehicle was consumed in a fire. Some of the parts that I have were in that fire, as you can see in the pictures. The majority of parts that I have was not in the fire. I am hoping that someone out there in Car Paradise will buy these parts and recreate this vehicle. It is one of the most beautiful examples of Harley Earl`s talents that I have seen.

Call me and let's talk about the Le Mans. I am open to trades. I do have a title.

Ad does say he's open to trades. 

I have got this nice highway cone I might consider trading but..... damn, that's a real good cone.

He'd have to pay shipping ...both ways. :lol:

 I’ve got more Model T Ford in this picture right here⬇️ than he’s got Cadillac (or Le Mans) in all of his.

 

Yes Ben, no amount of pondering can make me understand this fellow.   For $75K he will give you a title but you need to supply your own car?

Good Heavens!

What an awesome concept! This takes the sales pitch to a whole new level.  I think you're missing the forest for the trees.  Building off this very concept, I would like to offer for AACA members only, what I consider to be an exciting opportunity of extreme importance. Have you ever thought about how incredible it would be to own the Biltmore? For the low low price of $350,000 I will supply a 3/4 acre site already cleared yet surrounded by trees, for you to build a 1/20th scale replica of one of the most storied homes in America. I will even furnish detailed photos of the original to guide the builder of YOUR choice. Please keep this on the down low. Only card carrying AACA members are eligible.

Harry Carl??

...the shoe king of LA.

 

Oh, THAT Harry Carl!!  😄

 

That nest of old wiring is kind of funny. May not be in as bad shape as it looks, though, if it was taken out that long ago. Here's a wiki entry for the LeMans, which was a concept car:

Anyone have a photo of the car in question after the Barris Bros got done with it?
