The 027484 up for auction

The fate of some Fabulous Flatnoses is not at all enviable… 

The 027484, a manually shifted car, was once rescued from a barn in Washougal, where it had sat for several years with the top down. One can imagine what this does to the interior – let alone the top itself. The saver of this car repaired the top, put on a new exhaust and two tires and had the front seats reupholstered. Also, the bonnet was replaced with another one, off-color, yet in better condition.

In July 2014, the 027484 was offered on Craigslist and was sold to a new owner in Washington State, with 163,000 miles on the clock and still going strong, according to the advertisement. The asking price was $1,750 firm.

Recently, this Fabulous Flatnose turned up at Whitey’s Public Auto Auction in Pacific, Washington, where it will be auctioned. Apparently, stakes of selling are not too high, since there is hardly any detail given about the car, let alone a description of its current state. Perhaps, this is a ‘what you see is what you get’, so best to head off for Pacific to judge for yourself.

    

Let’s hope someone will save this nice flatnose. Again. Meanwhile, we’ll keep an eye on the bids…
