SOLD already for $17,800
and that included a very nice little trailer (probably worth a grand or two itself).scary part is seller has ZERO feedback, some risk there.
quite a bargain, but very few pictures. None of interior, none of engine bay, a gamble, but probably paid off to the lucky winner.

Either somebody got a real deal or it was a scam just to get the $500 deposit. No description, zero ebay rating and only a few pictures..... I took a pass.

Well...with great sorry I have to say its real. I spoke to the gentleman , he was in his 70s and has had the car since 1983. He was very nice, knowledgable (with the exception quite possiblbly of today's value) and loved the car. It just received a new water pump and the temperature gauge repaired. I asked for interior pictures, engine bay and dash pics.....by the time I received them via text from a helpful neighbor because he had never sent a text....sold for full asking. Urghhhhh

I talked with the gentleman also and I believe that he was trying to run and auction an not use the "buy it now" option.
He said he was in the early stages of selling it and wanted to get his highest offer?
Maybe it's still available?

I asked for more photos and never got them. The auction ended quickly. I wasn't willing to bid due to no feedback and no response. Hope the new owner got a great car!
