  • Gotta' be a first: Studebaker / e-bay auction

    'Having bought collector cars professionally for decades, I thought I had heard every reason for selling a collector car. [}]

    Well Bob she did say, "any questions you may have feel free to ask." So now you can drop her a line for the details. That is if you really want any.

    As for the car. It might have possibilities if we knew more about it. Originally it probably was a nice car. Looks rather neglected right now and with the body panels needed probably over priced by its starting bid.

          This car has shown up a couple of times on E-Bay. The last time I saw it the reason for the sale was for Mother's cancer surgery. Interesting marketing technique.

                Yup, I posted 2 or 3 times about this car previously. Currently on CL also:

                http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/cto/1673378704.html

                I wrote her the first time and gently let her know it was about a $4-500 car. Her response was WHAT ARE U NUTZ U JUST WANT SOMTHIN FOR NOTHIG!!!!!! I told her no offense intended, I was just trying to save her some hassle.

                About the third relist she added the part about her mother's cancer as Doug said. After about 4 days she added, PLEASE, somone bid! At that time the starting bid was $4500[xx(]

                I sent an e-mail earlier today, below:

                I thought you said this was for your mother's cancer surgery one of the last times you listed? As I stated before, it's about a $300 parts car. Being unrealistic is one thing, but to try making up stories to sell something is shameful.

                I love Studes and own several; also am a big fan of eBay. When people try to use either to hustle people, it is offensive. You can buy an excellent one for $3500, or $8000, or $6500, or whichever of the prices you've tried in the past.

                Best of luck to you and your mother.


                Her reponse:

                my mother got her surgery covered by our church and my fathers penison. and she is expected to be ok now as long as she dont smoke any more because she wont heal properly if she would have continued. i wanted to help her before i would help my self. now that i know she is taken care of i can work on my own life.so before yoy even know what you are talking about know your facts

                I await that first bid with mild anticipation...

                  It's the usual story. Some people think that by stating a price, then that is what it is worth. When in fact the value is only what some one is willing to offer you for it.

                      I never thought of that, but you might be onto something. In my first e-mail to this little lady I offered the concept of checking eBay, both current and completed listings, for comparables, but was completely rejected as nonsense. Alllll-rightythen[)]

                        Well, I have to admit it. I've never seen that reason before for selling a car. The car is in terrible shape and probably needs a lot more work than anyone can forsee.
                        Lotsa luck.

                            Am I missing something? It is the same car in the same shed in New York (C/L) and in Montana (eBay). I can't imagine that car and shed being in Manhattan.

                              I deleted some posts in this topic. If you want to talk about the Studebaker itself, continue. Otherwise, move on, please. Thank you.
