Thanks for your post on ACD car results at the Bonham's Tupelo Museum auction. I watched the live feed for hours. I find it difficult to understand why Lot #481 - a 1930 Cord L-29 / black and unrestored , brought $95,200 bid incl the premium while Lot #449 - a 1929 Cord L-29 / yellow and appearing to have been restored brought $113,120. Perhaps the buyer of the unrestored cabriolet had physically examined the black machine and found it to be all there and numbers matching. Perhaps the yellow car was poorly restored or deficient in numbers matching. An interesting and well done auction with a marvelous variety of automobiles. The sale proceeds are going to a worthy cause indeed, education.

Lot 483 was owned by a former club member. He regrets selling it. I was able to inlarge a photo of the generator. It appeared correct but the brush end plate was something I have never seen before.It had the GBW63 part number but it had a rib stiffener on it too. I have seen several GCO 4804-A generators but never noticed the stiffener. The pic Pete Kelly sent me showed a smooth brush end plate with the GBW63 part number. The car also had a much longer generator belt. You can see it was moved over in the mounts and the adjustment bracket under it to the timing cover appears to have been lengthened a few times. Probably the owner some years back might not have been able to buy a correct belt length. So the bracket was made to fit a different belt. I still would like to have purchased this car for what it was. A convertable Cord...

A club member bid on the "restored" yellow L-29 but stopped in time. It was bought by Gullwing motors and you will see it for sale soon. I consider the bid on the yellow car all the money. Can't see them making much. I was going to bid on the project L-29 but never got my paddle up, started at 50K and went from there. There was a new 3:91 gear set in a box with the car. It had good bones and most of the parts were where. The buyer is upside doen on his project before he starts though. If I were starting a restoration I would start with the project car, not the yellow one. The Duesenberg went to Europe, what is what the auctioneer said. Clive Cussler was there buying stuff.

Just as a aside. The auction CO. also charges the buyer the sales tax from the state you reside in. So in my case you can add another 6% to the purchase price. So for me the bill would go up 18.5%. If you bought automobilia it was 27.5% plus sales tax. Quite a hefty up charge.

The numbers on some of the memorabilia were astonishing!
