I noticed that. Maybe the decimal in in the wrong place. $102.41 sounds like a fair starting price for that car!

I think they are just wildly optimistic. They are also selling this old John Deere tractor. Now, I'm not a tractor expert, but a little internet searching reveals prices on these in the $2-3000 range restored:

Just out of curiosity I asked the seller a question. I asked if this was a mistake or was he really asking that price. This is the reply.
"THAT IS WHAT THE CUSTOMER IS ASKING". So he's selling it for someone and he is blind. At least he appears to be.

What's with all of you?!? Apparently, you don't know that they don't make Studebakers anymore [:0]

That alone makes it worth at least that much..........

I know this truck is on another thread, but I think it is the new winner for the Most ridiculous Ebay Price with the $45,000.00 minimum bid and $115,000.00 Buy It Now price. It makes that $10,000.00 51 Stude seem reasonable.

Leonard,

I was at Asa's sale when that truck sold and it brought $10,000 (the same price Sharon was asking for it prior to the sale). Given that they built 200,000 of these trucks I don't see how he arrived at his price.

Sure it is low miles, but how many people want or need a truck like this, much less have anywhere to store it? The good news is that my original '46 M-16 fire truck with 2350 miles ought to be worth at least a $25K opening bid! :D
