It was previously owned by the Sinoloa Cartel and there are three thousand pounds of cocaine in the belly storage.

That's the only reasonable explanation.

I didn't know they were using Cat engines back then. I bet it has a Cummins.

Every now and then there will be a bidding war between several obviously competitive and financially unlimited individuals. Other times someone's teenage kid will get on their parents laptop and begin bidding, or so reported. Most of the time you'll see the equipment relisted in a later auction because the buyer defaulted after finding out they had seriously overspent.

I have yet to run the VIN but ... lots of belly storage, engine size questionable (the DT466 engine is a 7.6, not a 6.6), might have highway gearing ... the oil in coolant issue might be something they are willing/able to fix, or maybe they have a good engine to go in it.
