Hurricane Force

Hurricane Sandy was a powerful tropical cyclone that devastated portions of the Caribbean, Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States during late October 2012....

It is currently the largest Atlantic hurricane on record with winds spanning 1,100 miles or 1,800 kms. In the United States, Hurricane Sandy affected 24 states, including the entire eastern seaboard from Florida to Maine. Damage was particularly severe in New Jersey and New York with flooding to streets, tunnels and subway lines and power outages across both cities.

This 2001 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible, chassis 1CX65857, suffered water damage in the New Jersey floods and is currently on offer through Insurance Auto Auctions.

The exterior looks a little dirty…

But a bucket, chamois leather, some car shampoo, some car wax and a lot of elbow grease could fix that!

The interior doesn't look so bad either...

But repair costs are estimated at US $122,920….

Here's why…

"INOP"…or inoperable. The keys are available, but it won't start.

Who knows the extent of damage to the electrics and engine…

So its currently bid to just US $5,100 with 2 days and 23 hours to go…

They also have a Phantom available.
