Something is definitely happening... One of my old ones sold for over $10k recently & it had lots of rust!

It is obviously great news for 6.9 owners - these are figures that one could previously only dream of. This car was a long way from perfect, and it would be easy to spend a few more thousand on it and,even then....

There is one aspect that I find fault with - how an auction house like shannons could be so badly astray in their sales estimate. To my mind, unforgivable. Regards. Styria

Would be because all recent sales have been around estimated price. Like Marks sales.

Disconcerting is the fact it was a phone bidder who had not inspected car.

I think in this case understandable. They go from previous auction results and there has never been an auction sale of a 6.9 in Australia even close to this.

So now we wait for the 690SEL to break the $100,000 barrier?

When opening up the Shannons website, they are showing a Milan Brown 6.9 having been sold in 2010. That car we had a lot to do with - new complete interior by Parks, new paint in original Milan Brown, and fitted with 15" Bundt wheels with new tyres. I believe that BenzBoy was one person to inspect the car- and what a quality car it was.

I guess in the end it doesn't really matter how deficient in accuracy the guiding range was - the sale price speaks volumes. It will be interesting to get a bit of a confidential run down by Helmet, seeing that he will see the car in the flesh in the near future. Regards. Styria

N.B. I doubt if this car can hold a candle to his Magnetite Blue 6.9.

Interestingly looked on carsales last night there are 2 6.9's listed for sale. Both don't look impressive but one @39000 the other @40000 . So they have noted auction result.

Geoff, what was your impression of those listings ? Realistic ? Condition wise (as can best be judged by photographs) Regards Styria

There's 2 on Gumtree ATM for $40k & $50k. Not sure if they're the same cars?

I'm wondering what the second highest bid was & whether there was a bidding war or the highest bidder just leap frogged everyone to ensure they won it?

I'm also wondering if this was Kennetts old car & whether the winner bidder thought the same??
