    Would this be the Mike Mueller that I knew long ago in Vermont? The famous one that had parts crammed under his house? Back when he had an old drafty barn? Can you email me? Thanks, Dave

    The unbelievable has happended. According to the JAguar E-Type magazine Feb. 2015 Mike Mueller has sold 3 of his 4 OSB FHC. An another source said, that he even sold no. 4 as well as he was simply offered too much money for the cars. The holy grail of early OSB FHCs has given them all away.....

    The article also said that 2 of these cars will be restored and subsequently auctioned. Estimated price from the auctioneers: Between 1 - 1.7 mio US$ --> this is a hammer!

    The estimated price range was meant per car - not both together!!!

    885018 was bought from Mike Mueller a few years ago. We have been collecting missing parts and it is now beginning the restoration process, should be done in next year (2018). It's in the Austin, Texas area.
