Thanks..I saw that. But wasnt sure how these vehicles track KBB. I'm new at these types of cars.
I'm interested in knowing opinions on this vehicles collectibility into the future. Is this is "good" one or should I be looking at different Bonneville options? I figured the "tri-power" was something collectors might like..but maybe I'm wrong?

Wow

I am very jealous.

That seems to have all the things a collectors car should have. I would think that the tri-power would be the most desireable, red in color and a convertible. I also think that the 65 and 66 are one of the best looking models of the classics.

Looking at Barrett-Jackson'* previous auctions, a two door 1965 hardtop went for $25,000 in 2006.

This year, a '61 convert went for $33K and a '62 went for $23,500.

It doesn't get much better than 3 deuces. Did you eventually buy the car? If you did show us some pictures please. I would like to hear about the car. Great year. My favorite is the 65 simply because there was just a bit more chrome on them.

Hemmings Motor News (or something like that) will be your best source for average prices....and a source for parts as well.
