Caught wind of this in '10, unsuccessfully tried to see 3/11. After reading ad am able to link some history together. Pertinent background info on this rare C-cab~

'99 or '00, owned by Mike Jefferies (sp) in/near Denver who also had a '54 C-cab. He collected '54s being birth year. Every decent piece of stainless and chrome from this '55 was cherry picked and swapped over to his '54. Mike had rockers made for '55 before then hanging a staggering $8k price tag. Why didn't he have those rockers welded on you ask? (Besides the obvious answer of not fitting well.) Because there was absolutely nothing left to weld them to. Headlight buckets were also heavily rotted.

So, 17ish years have passed, nothing has transpired with coach, other than $20k+ uptick. No idea what happened to '54, which was far better condition between the two.

I wish him luck in his attempt to peddle. I like the looks of these

Could be some beautiful car, once restored. The $30K seems a bit over the top, though.

Come on guys, this car/collection was on an episode of American Pickers a few years ago... That fact alone must make the car worth at least ten times it's true value..
