No sign of it since the auction.

I'll be very surprised if it ever surfaces again.

If it does, I'll bet it is "quietly".  I seriously doubt that the sale at BJ was even actually a "sale".  $475K for what amounted to a restomod was just way too over the top.  It seems more likely to be a deal among friends done as marketing stunt by the tomato farmers, who hoped to cash in big time with their "twin Bosses" the next year.  The Bosses didn't work out though, and they seem to have faded from the scene.

         That is interesting ! My car was owned by a guy in Baldwin Park. "Lee Baldwin" was his name.

This one was owned by another Registry member who had owned it for several years before selling it to the farmers.

Yes it was,  amazing I never paid any attention or knew anything about R codes back when I owned it. The 302 with auto trans looked like a factory install and the car even had the small radiator. those rear taillight panels were not on the car. I installed the 351 Cleveland with boss heads and larger radiator  also did a top loader 4 speed conversion and put a locker rear end in it. Changed the hood to one with blinkers in it.
