Guess The Price! 2017 Dallas Leake Auction

Many of you know that one of my part time jobs is as an independent contractor for Leake Auctions. I drive vehicles for prep, placement, and on the block for bidding. Everything from classics to exotics, lifted to lowered, has seen my foot on the pedal. For the next three days, I’ll be posting some interesting rides for you all to predict what it will sell for. You can find details about the auction here on Leake Cars. So let’s check out some 1970s vehicles!

This 1979 Pontiac Trans Am has original Paint, a 403, all its documentation, and is quite clean.

So what do you think this brown Bird it will sell for?

Her’s a nice little 1973 VW Thing with new paint and engine, plus a cool hardtop.

What do you think this Thing will get?

After a body on restoration, this 1972 Buick Skylark convertible is looking good. It has a Buick 350 and power top.

Is the sky the limit on bidding for this Skylark?

Check out this 1976 Lincoln Mark IV with Light Jade Luxury Group. Miles of green with a 460 that burns lots of green.

How much green will it take to buy this Lincoln?

This 1977 MG Midget is a great color combo, black with houndstooth interior. It’s clean with a few custom touches.

Will this little Midget bring big money? Or will it get passed over for something bigger and faster?

And here’s the 1979 Jeep CJ7 Golden Eagle with a 304 V8, lifted, winch and is dang cool. Will the lift help sell this Jeep?

Look for results and more listings soon. Let’s see those predictions!

      If you can get a 2017 Wrangler for $14,500 then I want to know where!!!!! I just bought a 2010 Wrangler Sport, low miles, excellent condition for $18,000.

      • Dave T

        It’s listed as a 1979 Jeep, not a 2017, but it will probably get close to $20K

  6. Leon

    Classic Jeep kinda clashes with the modern add ons.

    • half cab

    Since the Jeep is front, center, I’ll complain about that. I would love to find a vintage CJ, but every stinkin’ one, that doesn’t have gaping holes in the frame, are these jazzed up, goofy looking, to me, monstrosities with mombo motors, what is wrong with a basic Jeep, in line 6? Guess I was born too late.

  9. JW

    I’ll take a shot.

    T/A = 28,000
    Thing = 8,000
    Skylark = 15,000
    Mark IV = 10,000
    Midget = 9,500
    Jeep = 16,000

    This has the makings of a great game Corey. Man, that has got to be one good gig working for Leake Auctions! As a bonus for us not that lucky, could you post a photo of the coolest vehicle you get to wheel at the auction? Have a great time and I hope it is as fun as it looks, Mike. Oh, and what’s with the tape on the fuel cap on the Thing? Thanks.

  15. Chimmy

    In the spirit of The Price Is Right I’ll bid $1.00 Bob

  16. Car nut from Wpg Member

    TA 27K
    VW THING 11K
    MG MIDGET 5.5K

    *It’s a Golden Eagle

  17. Trevor

    I think the thing will go $18k it’s done very good. The jeep should hit $15, if it was a shoe box bronco we’d be talking about six figures! The midget at $10 if someone is passionate. The rest of them I’d be surprised at $7k each, I wouldn’t give a $1.00 each!

    • Trevor

      The jeep may hit $15k the fender flairs are a bad fit, gay overplayed rockstar wheels, exhaust is run poorly, aftermarket doors, and stupid stickers on the dash! Looks like somebody went to one of the jeep websites and ordered everything cheap they could bolt on!

  18. Tracy

    My guesses are:
    Trans Am $17,750
    Thing $6,500
    Skylark $11,200
    Lincoln $4,500
    Midget $5,750
    Jeep $11,100

  19. Jwinters

    those wheels on the jeep look dumb
