Sold for $66,000 at 2010 Gooding and Company - Scottsdale Auction.
Sold for $59,400 at 2010 Gooding and Company : The Amelia Island Auction.
Sold for $57,750 at 2012 Gooding and Company - The Scottsdale Auction.
The current owner purchased this 46C Special in late 1997 and gave it a comprehensive and professional restoration in September of 1999. The work took ten months and cost approximately $65,000. After the work, the car was sparingly driven and serviced as needed.

The engine is a 248 cubic-inch eight-cylinder engine with dual downdraft carburetors and offering 107 horsepower. There is a three-speed semi-automatic gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. In the front is an independent suspension with a semi-floating rear axle and coil springs.

In 2010, it was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $60,000 - $80,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot was sold for the sum of $66,000, inclusive of buyer's premium.

It returned to auction in 2010, at Gooding & Company's sale held in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was estimated to sell for $60,000 - $80,000 and offered without reserve. The high bid of $54,000 (prior to buyer's premium), was enough to secure new ownership.
