Sad to see that happen. Wonder why the company wants to sell them?

If they go to a private collector, they will rarely be seen again unless in a museum open to the public.

They are really rare and it's an interesting story about their fabrication but they aren't really a ford product since they were concept cars. I imagine they are heavy too.

In another article I read concerning the sale of these cars it was mentioned that Allegheny-Ludlum is currently in a dire financial situation and in addition to selling these prized cars for working capital, the company is even laying-off 30% of it's management force. They must really think these cars are gonna go for a fortune if they think the funds will be sufficient to get them back toward solvency. DD
