    Well Barrett Jackson at West World is in the can for 2021. There were several nice cars including 2 wagons from the Edsel Ford collection. A 1947 Ford Deluxe woodie wagon and a 1958 Edsel Bermuda were offered up for auction on Saturday, March 27th. Both cars had some modifications courtesy of Roush. The ‘47, with its fairly new 302, brought an astonishing bid of $209,000 and the Bermuda brought a handsome $165,000. Both cars obviously benefited from the Ford pedigree. There were several cool wagons and also a wonderful representation of ‘50s and ‘60’s kitch. Keep working on those wagons. All in all it was great to get back to some normalcy. Even though the auction arena was closed to the general public there were ample jumbo-trons around and you could still get the vibe of the auction. It was nice to see all of those gleaming beauties 15F5A063-BBD5-4231-9860-8102B5C6BAA6.jpeg

    Even though we have put them from time to time in wagon listings I was surprised at the number of beautiful Broncos that were fetching $90-$125,000 this stunning example of the last year (1977) brought in $90,000. By the time the taxes and buyers premium hits you are definitely into 7 figures. 1CFDAC79-3D1D-40EC-9B79-DEDE7E7F3436.jpeg

    Were you in attendance Mercman?
    That Edsel going for $165K is nuts. My buddy owns a 58 Bermuda. He was super excited for this auction because he said no mater what happened it would probably boost the value of his car. :LOL:

    Broncos have gotten out of control. You should see the one we are restoring now. It was a rusted out parts rig that we stole almost every usable part off of about 7 years ago restore the half-cab. :huh:
    Their value has gone up so much that we figured it might actually make sense to bring this one back from the dead.

    I did attend. Yes Broncos are off the charts. There is a company here in Phoenix that scavenges for hulks of Broncos and for $125-150k you can basically order a new Bronco and they will build from scratch, your specifications, color, options etc. with modern drive train and Ford 302 to start, or whatever you want to stuff in it. So heck ya keep working on yours. I think your buddy is right, but I think the explosion in perhaps the Bermuda price has just as much to do with wagons being hot. I read an article in the Detroit Free Press that indicated the normal price for a stock ‘47 would have been about $93,000 so there was a huge “Edsel Ford” premium attached to that and the Edsel. Over double on the ‘47. I personally would not have paid twice to three times the value for Edsel’s signature on the glove box, but that’s just me. Lol
