In 2012, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It had a pre-auction estimated value of 35,000 - $45,000 and was offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the vehicle had been sold for the sum of $39,600 inclusive of buyer's premium.
