This is a follow up on the thread "another Mo. Auction".
Went to this auction yesterday to make sure the 49 did not go too cheap.
http://enyeartauctionrealty.com/auctioneer.php?i=14790

One of our valued members from North Carolina is looking for an AD. I would be his surrogate bidder.
Looked at the truck and called him, Boy did he have a lot of questions and I enjoyed checking things out, that I did not think of.
Got the numbers off the engine and confirmed that the title matched the engine at the cashiers office.
Pre 55 GM products VIN, went by the number stamped next to the distributor.
They matched.
Not long before it came up for sale, I noticed a lot of teens with FFA jackets and shirts on around the truck.
Called him back and he set his top dollar right before it came up for sale.
Well, I did not even get to bid as it went high fast.
What we did not know is, the the local FFA had been holding fund raisers to buy that truck.
The auctioneer announced, after it sold, that the FFA had bought it with the money from fund raiser and donations.
First time I have ever seen a round of applause at an auction for the buyers.
Also really happy that the truck stayed where it was suppose to be, by teenagers

Here are the pictures I took yesterday.

Notice the kids standing around the truck, just before it sold.

I may repost this in the spoon, as it is a great true story.

Darn it, I forgot to post the sale price.
It sold for $6,100.
I,m thinking someone else like me, but more money, did not know the local FFA was bidding on it.
Who would bid it up, if they knew the FFA kids worked to get it.
