Bowlus Papoose prototype coming up for auction

This morning I read on a classic-car site that the prototype Bowlus Papoose, found by a collector in 1998 and put through a 3-year restoration, is coming up for auction this weekend (17-18 January 2014) in Scottsdale AZ.

The auction house projects a sale of $75k-$125k, which makes the new Road Chief seem more realistically priced than I thought previously.

A few hundred dollars more than the list price of a completely stock 2014 Classic 27FB.
