Steve, please fill out your profile and introduce yourself in the intro thread.
Our preference is that a new members first post is not a for sale ad.

Steve, I think that car is so famous that it belongs in a museum. 

I suggest you contact the owners of museums, and collectors of
historic famous cars.  One way to learn where these museums may
be is to research other historic famous land speed cars, and see
where THEY are -- i.e., Spirit(s) of America, Thrust(s), Railton, etc.

By the way, did the Green Monster ever actually go 650 mph (officially or otherwise)?

Isn't the problem with that particular car that it is not the one that set records?

Google "Slick Gardner Green Monster" and you get the picture.

Or see http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php?topic=3129.5 for the collective wisdom of Blue, Pork Pie and Robin UK back in 2007.

as noted by Pork Pie the Green Monster in which Art set his records was destroyed in November 1966 at Bonneville. Various reports quoted speeds of around 600-610mph. A replacement Green Monster was built but later sold to Slick Gardner and renamed the Andersons Pea Soup Monster.  In interviews with Art used in their books about record recording breaking, both David Tremayne and Harvey Shapiro quote Art as saying that 552mph was this cars fastest recorded speed. Maybe Gardner went faster than that later without Art? ThrustII peaked at 650mph.

It always pays to do research on a specialist forum before trying to sell an item - especially one that has seemingly doubtful provenance and none of the 'viewers' is likely to want as they cannot run at Bonneville. Sorry Steve Kouts you need to find another way.

Museums rarely buy anything.  They count on donations and benefactors for "museum pieces".

I thought the Peterson Automotive Museum owned this car?  I have seen it, or something very much like it, in the parking lot next to the entrance to the museum about 2012.
