  • 3 studes on ebay for over $50K...

    A good thing, in a way...

    '34 Year Ahead sedan.

    '37 J5 Coupe Express.

    '35 Commander Roadster.

    Even though they are worth every penny, will they sell? Well, if a 4 door bulletnose is worth $15K, maybe so...

    I might have to sell the bullet nose to the second bidder for the $14999 that the he offered if the Spanish guy does not get back to me by Mon. I'd rather it stay in US anyway, but the dollar is so weak, I'm getting more foreign bidders. The second bidder wants the car bad, but I need to wait a bit.

        Keep in mind there is a big difference between ASKING and SELLING .

        All beautiful cars. My favorite is the '34 Sedan.

        The CE was on before. Same ad. Same opening bid. Same BIN. (I think one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome each time )

          The 37 Coupe Express and 35 Roadster were both Bob Yale's cars.

                It just takes one person. When I first tries to sell my '70 Dodge Power wagon I put it on Craigslist with a fairly high price. Some lookers, no takers. I next tried the local paper, with the same result. After New Years it went on e-Bay and did not hit reserve (which was lowered during the auction and $700 less than I was previously asking). I sent the high bidder a second chance offer and got no response. On a whim I stuck it Back on Craigslist on Wednesday night and got one response from a woman. She and her husband came and bought it Thursday.

                    I never understood bids like that. The 99 endings are for SELLERS, not BUYERS. As a buyer, the bid should be over any even number in case your competitor bids the even number. In this case, If you can pay $15,000, your bid should be $15,007 or some such....not $14,999.

                            If the guy with the CE just started lower, he might well sell it. The only thing he did by relisting his for 50K was make my pile of CE sheet metal hit it's 4K reserve.
