After spending decades as a collection of parts stuffed into wooden crates the F-88 was reassembled. In 1954  the F-88 was a Motorama Dream Car and was one of only two  or an unconfirmed possible three ever created.
The F-88 seen here is literally the only car left of its kind  and was sold to John and Maureen Hendricks at the prestigious Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona for an unbelievable $3,240,000.
This acquisition made automotive history and is the cornerstone of the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum in its own special room in a rotating display worthy of the F-88!
