How's he going to collect the $500 penalty if winner doesn't follow through?

Looks like a real nice old car, but the listing is really misleading..

Buyers these days are checking these things out, He is only fooling himself.. And eBay Laughs all the way to the Bank

I like the part due to age mileage exempt.Reserve $4000.00?

he might not know. I never check with carfax or anything else when I buy or sell my cars. I only check the car our.

Reminds of a this one time when I saw a car for sale in a parking lot. In big letters it said something like 40k original miles etc. The interior looked so bad and had so much tear and wear it looked like it was used a lot.

If it were Actual Miles, and Absolutely MINT it would probably bring $4000 at the auction..

Hard to believe a professional in the business would believe the miles are correct.. I can see more miles just in the photo of the drivers seat that hides the outer edge. And i would think the steering wheel and pedals would show it too.

I look at the presale lists of auctions i attend and pull a history report on the ones that interest me before even going to the sale.. It is best to do your homework first

I've asked the seller a question about the mileage and the Florida lineage, but he hasn't responded yet. Wonder why?

And, as dealers do not misrepresent cars for sale on eBay, I am sure his response will be something like, "it was in Florida at one time and the mileage was 16k at one time".

We'll see. Hasn't met reserve so no one'b been "hurt" yet.

Probably 116k or 216k? My old Dart only showed something like 20k when I bought it. Of course, it'd rolled over 3 times. But the guy who sold it said he thought it'd been 3 but coulda been 2.

I checked the sellers feedback. A power seller with a feedback score of 1339 with 99% positive. Must be doing something right?

I see the relisting shows 116K on it, however look through the guy's feedback. Lots of happy customers, some really p!$$ed ones.

I guess the p!#$$ed ones are those who didn't inspect them before that bid.

How can you check the mileage on cars that are prior to 1980? Please let me know. [email protected]

You cant.. Only way is to have maintenance records to back up the mileage claims..

All the current history reports (CarFax, Experian, Etc) only cover the current 17 Charactor VIN started in 1981.. any older VIN is untraceable. Only one exception i know of is to order a "Jacket" from the state that issued the title. It can be a nightmare! and is not recommended!

A true professional could look the car over and probably get a good idea if the miles were correct.
