There was "slightly modified" 55 Chevy on eBay

eBay listing

The highest bid reached just over $150,000, but the reserve wasn't met before it was pulled from the auction.

"Final Objective" is a street legal 55 Chevy with a V12 1650ci Rolls Royce Merlin engine (the same type of engine used most of the P51 Mustang fighter aircraft). At 3000hp, it is in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's most powerful street registered car.

The car was built in Australia by Rod Hadfield of Castlemaine Rod Shop. It's been on a tour of the US, and it looks like he doesn't want to bother shipping it back to Australia.

The current rumor in Australia is that the car was pulled from the eBay auction after Jay Leno got interested.

I think he means the owner closed the auction on ebay so he could sell it to Jay Leno...
