Chris Summers replied the topic:
A genuine factory-supercharged chassis (J-507) with a body built by Maurice Schwartz and Harrah's Automobile Collection in the late 1950s. The original body, a Derham Convertible Sedan, is now on the car owned by Keith Brown in Indiana.

The consignor is a California dealer known for great cars at ridiculous prices. They had been asking $3 million and not getting it, so I guess they cut the price to a "mere" $2.6 million. IMHO it's a $2 million car on its best day.

Chris Summers replied the topic:
I assume all of them have replicas unless told otherwise. It's usually a safe bet. :DBy factory-supercharged I mean that the chassis was originally supercharged by the factory, which is what I've read or been told in most cases regarding this car.

In the case of J-507, I've never been told one way or another if the blower is a replica or original. I'm guessing from Randy's comment that at least at one point it was a replica and may STILL be a replica.

Sorry if the wording was misleading. I should work for an auction company! :D
