I know the big show was yesterday, but did anyone happen to attend the auction in Springfield MI yesterday for this 36 and other parts & cars?…any idea what the car went for?…who bought it?…
’38 carcass $1,000
’36 1602 $35,000
840A 7 Pass $8,000
’33 Roadster??? project Seagrave 12 $25,000
Thank you Bill…$35,000 for a non running Pierce…wow!
I have a lot of non running stuff in the basement. Maybe it is time to sell.
How much of a car do you have to have to claim it is non running? Chassis, wheels and tires?
I have a non running data plate for a 12. Does that count?
Maybe you should put that plate in one of their auctions Bill, you might get $5,000 for it!
I have a 12 cylinder “operation and care” manual for the 1602 and 1603, if anyone needs one! I’ve been told it’s rarer than the cars themselves.
I was at the auction for about an hour…….right before the PA cars went through. The 38 Club Sedan was a joke, I would not take it for free…..we passed on it about 8 years ago. I value the car at zero.
The 36 V-12 looked like a 1960 repaint, and some so-so upholstery. Had new heads and water jackets on it……probably had an overheating issue. Looked like they were done 15 years ago. It’s a long way from driving…..probably 20K to get it reliable and on the road if you’re lucky. I valued it at 12K. I watched the high bidder buy it, an older gentleman……..if he was the final purchaser……I don’t know. For 35K that was a huge roll of the dice, as there is a much better V-12 offered by a club member for much less money right now.
The 34 was a very nice car years ago…..looks like a California car. Very solid. It will be going to parts if anyone needs anything, call Cislak.
The junk pile boat tail is so bad, that I won’t even bother. I valued it at 500 dollars. It was a late model Seagrave in an 8 chassis.
End of report.
