It would appear that all the bidders came to the same conclusion as Chris.

lol - took awhile to sink in.. the building behind the car (J375 SJ) made the car look like it had an ugly square top with a pickup bed on the back. Thinking yeah... that price fits if it looks like that. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Whenever a picture is taken of anything. The back ground must be factured into what someone is going to see. I have seen some terrible blurry pictures of items someone is attempting to sell. I sometimes wonder what a person is trying to hide in a blurred pic. As noted, this car has the appearance of a square top but looking closer its the building in the back ground as noted above. Its shocking the amount of information on this car. Its also good to know "people" are in the know about every little item about these wonderful cars too. Heres hopeing the new owner of this car knew what he was buying.

I wish I had Ted's paperwork with the J & chassis numbers. But I'll provide an overview. There were 10 or 11 Billing's Touristers. It went something like this:

1. Original engine, tranny, rear end, firewall, instruments etc. Just the body swap.
2.
3.
...
11. Mostly original engine, buick rear end, truck tranny, reproduction instruments, reproduction firewall, reproduction chassis, etc. CAST front axle.

The first cars were great and should be valued accordingly. The last cars had a J engine and that was about it. The biggest deal is the front axle which were cast reproductions not forged. You cannot adjust a cast axle by heating it. These cars should be valued less. Everything in between is a gradual deviation from #1.

If the car in question was a lower number then I think it was a bargain. If the car in question was higher then maybe the price was appropriate. I do not know where this particular car falls on the spectrum.
