    Here is the link to the eBay auction...

    Note, Shipping and Handling is extra, and the "working base" is not included, but available at an extra charge (the current base will remain at Pacific Park).

    And if you do decide to bid, the Los Angeles Times would love to hear from you....

      I wonder what condition it's in? We went on it once about 8 to 10 years ago and it was rusty. I was happy when ti was finally time to get off of it.

        We have a winner...

        http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...monica--1.html


        Ten days, six bidders and 35 bids later, the EBay auction for the Ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier is over. Winning bid: $132,400.
        The bulk of the action started at 8:45 this morning, with the price jumping from $83,000 to the final sale price in a flurry of bids in the last 10 minutes of the sale. You can see the auction here, and the bidding here.
        So with the base, that is about $265,000 PLUS shipping....

        And over $66,000 will go the Special Olympics!
