Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2018

I received this comment this evening:

I don't know if you're aware of this, but the Barrett-Jackson soiree in Palm Beach is offering a '59 Sport Fury ragtop from the John Staluppi collection that has the 361 2X4V carb setup. It has all kinds of AACA and concours awards, but not only has the 2X4V bit, but also wire wheels (which definitely were a "no-go" in 1959, especially with us in the hot rod set).

Thanks for the tip Joe! I went looking for the auction - this from the Barrett-Jackson Website:
Lot #707 - This award-winning and beautifully restored Fury is powered by an 8-cylinder engine with 2x4 barrel carburetor and 3-speed automatic transmission. Its awards include 2009 First Junior at AACA National, 2010 Best of Show at Stowe Vermont, 2010 Best of Show at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, 2010 Best of Class at the Newport, RI Concours, 2010 Best Plymouth at Hemmings Concours, 2011 First Senior at AACA National, 2012 First Grand National at AACA, 2013 Best in Class at AACA Regional in Boston and 2013 Best in Class at Concours on the Charles. From the John Staluppi Cars of Dreams Collection.

Incredible, right? Here's a few pix from Facebook - photos of the TV, of the auction underway:

Mike McCandless wouldn't touch it. He spotted spidering under the paint!

I was watching the actual auction on TV but missed who the buyer was.
