Did the "breadvan" ever have a who-would-want-that-period?

I have been intrigued by the breadvan 250GT since Matt Ettinger took me for a ride in it. I only saw it when he spiffed it up, racing number and all, but I wonder, did it ever kick around as a nobody-wants-it car because it was not a GTO which some thought it was because of red cam covers and six carbs, or not a swb anymore either? There is an extensive story on it on Motorbase.com but it sounds like the $3000 or so it was bought for from Italy was fair market price at the time....

In my old age, I spend time kicking myself for great bargains I lost (did I tell you when Henry Mannney III offered me a 250GTO for $18,000 in 1969?)

There were GTOs advertised for as low as $7000 back in the good old days, and I am sure the Breadvan could have been had for a similar price back then. Too bad you did not buy 5111 from Manney. That one had not been monkeyed about as many of them were.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Well back in the old days $7000 was certainly not nothing. I think it's a bit comparable with a 360 Challenge selling for $100k today.

I'm pretty sure I've read that the Breadvan had some pretty tough times. Best book to check is Marc Sonnery's book on 2819.

Onno- A new Daytona was ~$20K back then, around 1970-72, and a Spider, which they could not give away, was around $25K in the States. Compared to a $400K F12, that would be like picking up a 333SP for $133K. Different times.

I remember the Pantera going for $10,000 as the Bavarian and thought that was 'way up in the sky money'.
