“Valve and Piston took full control and found the “needle in a haystack buyer” for this six figure vehicle. Perfect buyer who properly appreciated the fully restored Boattail. Frank Kilton was instrumnental in developing and closing the transaction. Their white glove service ranks as one of the best!
“My experience with Valve and Piston was flawless from the initial introduction to final transfer of funds and title. Within one week, multiple offers were presented and the sell price was greater than expected. Frank Kilton went above and beyond to market the vehicle for maximum exposure. Highly satisified!”
“Frank knows the complete process of marketing unique vehicles. His knowledge of trending markets and pre-qualification skills for high end buyers is second to none. Valve and Piston’s nationwide database has generated above average interest levels on my custom-built hotrod.”
