Wonder how come Mustang guru Steve Davis didn't snag it for B-J Scottsdale 2020!?

When it comes to muscle car auctions, IMO, B-J falls a distant second behind Mecum.

The question is . . . why didn't Sotheby get it. They are the premier auction house.

I wonder if the decision to list with Mecum came down to lower commission fees for the family? But, I too am surprised Sotheby's isn't listing this car. Sotheby's seems to list the best of the best cars, domestic or foreign.

I don’t know that I have seen Ford buying high dollar cars and the Peterson is mainly other people’s cars that are on display. Maybe the Weathertech guy ? It is such a iconic car and Mecum spends more on marketing than any of the other auction houses that I know of. The world will know it is for sale. How well known is Steve McQueen in places like Saudi Arabia etc ?

----Ford has had the use of the car for display and such for a while now and may feel like they got their moneys worth!...….Bill S

And I'm sure Ford compensated the owner very well for showing the Mustang to the World!

Surely the new owner won't be stupid enough to restore the Mustang!?

----Oh yah!!! Matter of fact, I can imagine that there has already been more than one conversation between the owners and Ford as to the cars future. That it's coming to auction at all says a lot......Bill S
