Two 1987 Buick Grand Nationals, known as “The Twins” in the classic car market, have sold on Ebay for $205,699, approximately four times what either of them is worth on their own. This makes no sense. How is this possible?
The muscle cars were first highlighted last spring when they were offered for sale on Facebook. Their unique backstory that they were built one after the other on the production line and had been together ever since made their values skyrocket.
Both couple of hundred mile odometer “Twins” had all of their original parts and thick layers of dust inside and out. Talk about a Barnfind! That’s couple of hundred miles on each Odometer!
Photos of the cars sitting side by side in a garage where they’d been untouched for years turned them into internet legends, and they were soon sold for an unknown amount.
Shawn Matthews, the buyer, said at the time that he had no plans to flip them, but his plans changed and he had them posted to the auction website last week. He must have been keeping tabs of the results of all the Arizona Auctions at the start of this year.
The opening bid was $156,000 and there were 226 more bids before the auction closed on Sunday.
According to the Hagerty Price Guide, a top condition 1987 Grand National should sell for around $52,000.
Apparently two that are in this kind of condition are worth exponentially more than one.Categories: Blog
