Well, past history does have a way of changing the value of things. It's just, when reaching for the moon, I can only get to the top of the trees! :highly_amused: PJ

Well, that price might have something to do with that being the only car built by the factory to compete in the 1958 Monte Carlo; known to have survived in (nearly) complete original form.

It actually sold for just slightly over the top estimate. https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/PA18/Paris/lots/r0007-1958-triumph-tr3a-works-rally-car/565505

This car has an extensive racing history at the hands of well known drivers. You are purchasing part of motor racing history, hence the cost.
