I wonder how you bid on the wrong car? Might have thought he was buying the next car in line, maybe not even a Corvair.

That blue interior doesn't go too well with the yellow exterior...

I know the seller personally, and the car is Very, Very nice.
It is VERY difficult to bid on the wrong car.
Sounds like Buyers remorse to me.
Or could not afford to purchase it, and now has to cover the debt.
Which is not only the purchase price but up to 15% additioal buyers fees.
Fees are where the REAL money is made
And the seller has fees as well, meaning the seller gets less than the selling price, like 10 % less.
Plus has to pay the transportation cost to get the car to the facility.
Plus a sellers pass.
Think about it : up to 25% or more of the cars price goes to the auction house
For doing what, exactly?? 5 minutes on the block ?
I say usury is in play here.
Multiply that by 3000+ cars, and see the real picture.

I just found a Mecum from yesterday in Kissimmee Florida, U-tube day 11

at time mark 5:56.00
Lot U213 white 66 vert with blue interior

the car before him was an Audi that sold for 6500, the car after the Corvair was a Porsche that sold for 90K

May not be the same car, but it sure looks like it. Car sold for 15K plus the fees.

I gotta agree with Matt.
Sounds like a Flipper that wants to sound like an ignorant fool.
There is so many mistakes in his spelling and grammar that it just isn't right.
"perfect restauration"
"update interior from Clark’s Corvair"
"correct optional wheels hub cap "
",i tought i was on an other car."
Even an ESL person could copy and paste the info from the auction sheet better than his presentation!

My guess is that he was a proxy bidder and was contracted to bid on the stinger, white Corvairs are all the same right! If that was true, I bet the guy that contracted him to buy the car was doing backflips thinking he got a stinger for $20,500 until he found out it was just a Monza Convert. Good luck getting $21,000 for that car even if it is in great shape.

I think you have it figured out. Bet the guy that hired him hit the ceiling when he figured it out.
