It had a 454 in it. Bracket car from a body in white.

Body in white correct... BJ listing #5003. Gas Monkey COPO 427... Look at the Saturday listing docket... Still don't believe BJ mislabeled the engine... They talked about it before selling it and also said it there....

Not likely, even if it was the 450 they could not race it without making the car a 2014.

That would be a big NOPE!!

I think that the confusion came from the Gas monkey guys. At one point the description on their web site said both 427 and 454. They have since fixed it.

I did some further investigation this morning... On the docket listing of all the cars by day stated a 427... If you clicked on the individual car a complete listing was there... In this listing it said 454.... But I'm sure on the stage asthe car was there they said 427... But, this is still confusing....

One of the last cars sold on the broadcast was a real COPO and it brought $132,000 before fees....So there is the real price ....... IMHO.....
