Bring-A-Trailer accepted my Speedster several weeks ago and  informed me this morning that they are approximately 1 week away from assigning an auction manager to my Aquamarine Vintage Motorcars of California built Speedster and beginning the auction.
I didn't think I was allowed to sell it before the auction started so I asked them.
They replied that I can if I do it BEFORE they assign it to an auction manager!
So if you want it for $70k you can have it now and avoid the 5% BAT commission.
I'm making this same offer to several people who have expressed interest in it as well as posting it on my website.
If you are interested you need to let me know ASAP.
My price is firm at $70k.

With my Aquamarine  blue Vintage Motorcars of California Inc. built Speedster nearing a  Bring-A-Trailer auction Go Live, I thought it might be useful to compile a list of the 14 VMC built Speedsters that have been auctioned on BAT during 2023 for comparison purposes. Click the link below for details on all 13 of these beautiful Speedsters, including images, key features, sale results and links to the auction comments.

Yeah, I’d contact BAT to make sure they don’t bookend two similar cars for auction at the same time. Here is the car mentioned by WNGD

My experience is that you don't tell BAT what to do, BAT does what it wants!  Yes, I've seen it and it's a nice looking car, but doesn't have IRS suspension or and under-the-dash e-brake.  Also appears there might be some importing back in to the USA issues and possible title issues.  There are already some discussions about importing problems.

They tell me mine is scheduled to start next week.  Mine has IRS suspension, an under-the-dash e-brake and is still under the VMC factory warranty!

BAT has informed me that my Vintage Motorcars Speedster auction will be live this week.  I suspect they will wait until the Auratium Green car auction ends.

I've sweetened the deal on my car here is a list of everything included:

356 Speedster replica built by Vintage Motorcars of California Inc. in 2023.
Summer car shows are in full swing and there is no need to wait for up to 2 years to have one built when you can have a new one in your garage now!!!
