I fully appreciate it's rarity. I truly hope it ends up in the right home, preferably in our car club. I personally find these cars... not attractive, to be polite. It will probably command some very high bids, but for me, it's about going out to the garage and seeing a car I love. Best of luck for the folks here going after it.

This one definitely does look like a POS, in its present state. Missing Federal Model 18s(was normally the way they were ordered) on the front of the roof, missing skirts, and the wire wheel covers don't help matters! I think that the '60 Guardians looked better than the '61/'62s personally.

I see that Yvette has pulled this auction off of her website. I wonder what is going on here??

Still there, look under "auction schedule".

I used to get her monthly/quarterly e-mails that went out to everyone on her mailing list. Her grammar/spelling/usage were atrocious! Someone must have finally told her to either stop doing it or have someone else do it for her.
At the Nebraska Chevy dealer where they sold a lot of old cars, some which had never been sold, and some that were trade-ins the dealer kept, she also called some of the used cars MSO (Manufacturer's Statement of Origin, which means the car has never been titled). She apparently didn't really understand how the MSO is used prior to titling it to the buyer at purchase time.

It was gone from the auction schedule for a couple of days. She must have been re-working some of it.

Default For whatever it's worth...

I have done Business with Yvette VanderBrink on a couple of occasions. I have found her to be honest, helpful, considerate, and courteous. In fact I found that she goes out of her way to tell you every negative thing about any car she's trying to sell. As to the condition of the Guardian, it appears to me to be in better shape than any of the cars I own was at the time I acquired them. If I were a Guardian fan I wouldn't be afraid to tackle it

I totally agree with Brady. I have purchased 2 cars at her auctions and she is as honest as they come. Very nice gal, very "down to Earth", and extremely helpful. One of the 2 cars that I purchased did not have a title and I am sure that there was no title when the consigner purchased it. She announced at the beginning of the auction that she would produce titles on any vehicles sold without one, if the buyer requested one. I requested a title on the one that I purchased without one and Yvette had a good title to me within 3 weeks of my purchase! This particular auction was in South Dakota.

I agree 100% Brendan. I think Thom McPherson, in his M-M book, when describing the Guardian, he described it as "the answer to the question nobody asked."
