FYI: 1953 car sells for a pretty penny

A buyer at the Pebble Beach Auction in California paid $165,000 on Sunday night for a rare 1953 Oldsmobile Fiesta. Harv and Jan Jubie of Marysville recently donated the car to the Providence General Foundation, a fundraising organization that helps Providence Everett Medical Center. The selling price includes a commission, so the foundation will get $150,000 of the purchase price.

Harv Jubie had hoped that the car, which was featured in Julie Muhlstein’s column Sunday, would fetch more than $200,000 for the hospital foundation. Still, he called the selling price “a ton of money.” Jubie was at Pebble Beach for the weekend events and said he shook hands with late-night talk show host Jay Leno, a car collector who had a custom vehicle he called “a tank” on display.

The Gooding &Co. auction company, which sold more than 140 cars in the auction, does not disclose the names of buyers.
