  • Ebay parts non sense

    This subject has been addressed before but cant do the search. How does one on look for Studebaker parts with out the thousands of other junk. I've tried putting Studebaker Truck Parts only. And it come up with 14k of junk. I've tried 3 or titles to no avail. I have same problem with Hudson stuff. Just about quit looking for stuff on Ebay. A portion of the time it's entertainment. But if I spot something, then it becomes serious.
    Thanks in advance,
    Kim

    Go to advanced search and enter Studebaker-fits and that weeds out a lot.You can also do a search for Studebaker N.O.S.

      Yeah..... "Studebaker -fits -covers" seems to work for me.

        eBay really, really needs to have a "block sellers" button. Or a "block this listing and all similar ones" button. I really doubt this would cost the spammers much business at all. People who are looking for the kind stuff they sell will find them, and people who are not won't buy from them at all.

          I have followed a "1935 Studebaker" search for about a year and listed minus of many items. This morning there were 1,318 items with the first listing for a Ford tractor part. The narrative listed just about every word and number in the English language. I got this listing because the search was for "1935". Ebay, wake up. Ken, Deltaville Va

              Well, none of those combinations work for me. I am electronically challenged, but you folks laid it out to be simple and followed it exactly. What am I dong wrong? Used to be real simple. Listings got this before then it got fixed and was fun again. Can't take time to go through 15k listings in hopes of finding a part I could use.

                studebaker trucks [space] -[no space]fits, -covers

                Put a dash (minus sign) in front of any word you do not want in the item description. "Fits" eliminates a lot. You can also list unwanted vendors in the same way. No space between the minus sign and the term you don't want.

                  Try putting your search in quotes like this "1935 Studebaker" that should work.

                    If I'm looking for a 1950 Studebaker Champion to buy I'd list my search like this:

                    1950 Champion -(ad, picture, fits, rat, rod, parts)

                    If a lot of some other junk shows up then I'd just add the other word to the list, such as I could add "cover" to the list if a lot of car covers showed up.
                    I could also narrow the list by going to ADVANCED SEARCH and putting in a price range. I might list $500 to $6,000 if that was my top limit.
