That is not so much for an "original" Dual Cowl Pheaton.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the car does not have it's original engine. I would think this affects the value some, though I am certainly in no position to fathom a guess how much, since I believe it was done very early in the car's life. You would think (I would anyway) that a car like this, being a the only LWB LeBaron Sweep Panel, would bring more.

Possibly a bidding war? Think last year, the Whittell car...

No, I had the same question in mind. The later added supercharger can't be the reason.

It looks like superchargers (single- and dual-carb.typs) are available for under $ 100k

I believe they stated in the catalog description that the blower was an original (although as a twin pot I question that) installed 40 years ago which could add 200-300k in value for the blower alone. I'm at a a loss where the other 800k came from.

You don't need a friend, neighbor or schill to buy back your car. You are perfectly in your rights to buy your own car back. A couple of years ago, I heard the "buy back" cars comprised a full 40 percent of B-J sales.

I'm surprised at the low number on the lwb Duesenberg phaeton as well. The swapped engine should have had nothing to do with the low number. If I had the money, I would have paid 2 or 3 times more for that car than the convertible coupe. There must be something I don't know about the car. Even the town car brought more money.
