The hammer fell at $77,998 for this 1998 Mauck MSV.
This 1998 Mauck MSV is one of approximately 100 assembled by hand for Mauck Special Vehicles of Worthington, Ohio. The vehicle is powered by a supercharged 8.1-liter V8 equipped with an automatic transmission and limited-slip differential, and features a steel spaceframe chassis with a 144″ wheelbase, double A-arm air suspension, and disc brakes at all four corners. A 2007 refurbishment by specialist AI Design in Tuckahoe, New York totaling over $800k addressed the exterior cosmetics, interior, suspension, powertrain, and other systems as detailed below. The current owner acquired the coach 11 years ago and has driven it approximately 5k miles while continuing to have it serviced at AI Design.
I have known this vehcile since its birth. I can personally attest to the level of customization and upgrades bestowed upon this Mauck. Not one single aspect of this vehicle has been left untouched. When you step inside you feel like you are boarding a Gulfstream jet. The buyer of this item got an incredible deal when you consider that almost $1 million has been invested. This is the ultimate tailgating machine and its perfect for a cross-country tour. Very well bought!
What kind of person spends $1 mm on the purchase and restoration of a vehicle worth just 77k at auction? There must be a crazy story behind it!
