Good point, Buckskin would look good also.

The Coddington Red Roadster went for $50K over the block last night. $55K cost to the buyer after commission paid. Doesn't really seem too much for a vehicle that is all steel, seems to be built well and you can drive it on the street. I thought it might bring more because of the pedigree.

The Dan Woods "Milk Truck", went for $77k as a pure collectable you can't drive anywhere. The examples of this go on and on.

I watched many vehicles past through that were pretty good buys compared to dollars invested, raw cost to build and time never accounted for.

I've always favored a contrasting color from the body too. But this build was so shaved and sterile everywhere else, the red interior seemed to serve that style.

It is nice to look at some of the builds and maybe steal an idea but no I am not paying that kind of price..

Good point Sam. How about all the tools and space required to be a custom builder jack of all trades? Now you need to be in the business because of all those extra expenses. Sometimes things need to be farmed/subbed out. Truth be known, it happens all the time.

Times are different than a few years ago, that is a steal as far as I'm concerned. To have a car like that built from a rough old car would be far more in my neck of the woods.

I wish that with what that car has on it for specials, one offs and beyond top shelf, you could duplicate that build. You don't have to like all of what Boyd's guys did, they usually did have good pieces in a car. Some day I'll get brave and figure out what mine cost to build - and I might find that I exceeded even that figure on my '31 killmyretirementfundmobile.

And that current photo at the top of my header - shows the contrasting colors
