47 Town & Country on Ebay

Recommended Posts

  Did everyone see the 47 Town & Country conv. sell on Ebay this morning for $20,700? It looked like a very nice car,  and I was tempted to bid, but the description was quite vague and the location only said U.S.A. If it was a for-real-deal, someone got a helluva deal on a car. Are the Town & Countrys softening on price? It seems a lot are for sale but none are selling and recent auctions have been lower on sale prices.  Beautiful cars.

that's a real mystery unless it's a fake sale by a scammer.  That price looks too good.  At that price, I'd buy it.  There's not enough pics and there is no detailed description except a list of items the car has.  And no location is kind of a tip off that it might be fake.  It looks like some in another country or in jail copied a few pics and made  a fake ad.  He has only twenty feedbacks which could be fake as well.

Only a few pictures, blurred out or no license plates, no description, no location, no way to contact seller... that is a scam. There are scams on all the sites everyday. If the price is too good to be true it usually is.

According to the feedback it doesn't look like a scammer to me.

Good looking project car, as it was so described.  At the sold price of $20,700, the above picture was only worth 150 words rather than 1000.  The buyer will have a huge head start on any restoration he does if it is complete.

This looks exactly like a scammer. The account was inactive for over a year. The Location is given as USA. The description is just a few words. Ebay lets you post 24 photos with a car ad. Less photos is a red flag. It means a lazy scammer in most cases.

If somebody has free time contact the seller, tell them you missed the car and ask if they have another one. I bet they do. I also bet it is cheap and that the photos are in a different location. But please do not send them any money.

Another thing about the seller's feedback is he has zero sales.  All 20 feedbacks were of things he bought, so the Town and Country is the first thing he has sold on Ebay!  I doubt very much that the buyer actually sent him the money.  If he did, I think Ebay would get it back for him. 

 

This seller now has another car for sale on Ebay:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-Buick-Riviera/273444551393

I had just contacted the seller asking where they are located in the USA we will see?????

 

 

Con games are like paint jobs the good ones require more prep and money, looks like this person did a little more than most con men. The back round for the photos of both cars is too inconsistent for the average private seller, Every con game relies on their "marks" greed
