I just sorted all 62,571 vehicles listed on eBay by price and this is the most expensive one. By a WIDE margin!

Some cars actually look as good or better with the top UP. Mercedes 540k/500k come to mind. The Cord 810/812 coupes look pretty good with the top as do the same era Auburn Speedsters.

I think this one actually looks o.k. with the top up.

It looks better with the top up than J-508, the Fishtail Speedster on which it was based.

On the other hand, I've always been among the very, very few who think that the proportions of J-508 were a bit wonky, mostly do to the LWB. The SWB used for J-507 put everything where it should have been.

I think i saw this car when Jerry Moore had it, he displayed it at a early
90s Houston Autorama. Top down, windows down, absolutely stunning.
Ive never seen black paint that looked so deep. I can tell all that it realy
blew my skirt up. I think its the same car, he got it from Harrahs.

While I still think it's a bit ungainly with the top up, I expect that the workmanship is first rate. To me, even as a rebody after the era, so to speak, it still has something of a pedigree, being mostly Maurice Schwartz' work.
