    Sold at Gooding Amelia Island Auction 2012 for $59.400.
    This BJ8 was delivered new in Texas and remained in the hands of the original family for decades. In 2007, it was sold to a new owner in New York who commissioned a restoration on what was then an exceptionally straight and solid car. Completed in 2010, the extensive and correct restoration included a bare-metal respray as well as the installation of new insulation, which included factory-standard heat shielding over the transmission and exhaust. In addition, the chrome was replated, the interior was redone in proper materials including new carpeting, and all the gauges were checked and rebuilt as required. A new top completed the cosmetics.
