$175,000? Seems rather steep.
This one-off custom Oldsmobile Toronado was appraised with a replacement cost of $175,000 and a “fair market value” of $105,000… The eBay auction (#270244834481) is currently at $8,500 with no bids, and it won’t surprise me if that’s where it stays. The current owner bought it with the intention of painting it and getting it on the road as an outrageous show car — and I agree, it probably would be quite striking — but never got it out of storage, with other projects taking priority. The Toronado was widened and lengthened significantly (so it’s about the size of a 1960 Lincoln convertible), with the addition of a Carson top and rumble seat in the back. Each row of seats (including the rumble seat) sits three.
