  1. Good work! Thats the advert he lifted the photos from. I'm pretty sure this is the same guy who tried the same thing last week with another Buick from Hemmings that Matt Harwood had listed. I had emailed the seller asking if it was ok for a friend who lived in the area to come by for a looksee and he did not reply. I reported it to Ebay and they gave him the boot and closed the auction but here he is again with another car which I also reported. I think the members here are to smart to go for his scam. He definitely thinks Buicks are good bait but he likely has several other makes listed. If it seems to good to be true its a scam!
  2. I Believe this 1941 Buick to be yet another Fraudulent Ebay listing! Beware. No reserve short auction and Bank wire money transfer shows all the signs and for some reason they all are listed from Washington State. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1941-Buick-Roadmaster/123695891946?hash=item1cccd985ea:g:nyEAAOSwL35cjtS4&vxp=mtr

  4. Pete this is the 52 I am refering to https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/cto/d/mason-1952-buick-roadmaster/6825121806.html
  5. Its a really nice 52 and the last and most powerful of the straight eight 320 motors with the one year Quad Carter making 170 hp. Problem is almost everyone I have seen for sale has had a cracked exhaust manifold which is unrepairable and close to impossible to find in uncracked condition. Only thing you can do is make up a new non original exhaust manifold which is not that difficult or expensive to fabricate. Something to find out from seller but betting its cracked.
  6. I reported it and sent the seller an email to get lost and to Ebays credit it is now long gone! I only had to google a 49 buick wagon to find the pictures of this car in images to figure this out and it is always a good first step to see if your looking at a bogus auction. Also thanks to Matt Harwood for his input.

  8. This 1949 Beauty of a Roadmaster Wagon was a Harwood Motors car lifted from now closed Hemmings motors advert. According to Matt it is not where seller claims it to be and is bogus!!! Has no reserve for a six figure car which is a red flag. Another too good to be true auction and of course seller wants buyer to use electronic bank transfer to his account, https://www.ebay.com/itm/1949-Buick-Roadmaster/323733618351
  9. Beware of this 1949 Buick Roadmaster on Ebay! The photos were lifted from Hemmings and the car was from Harwood Motors . Seller has no reserve on this very high end beauty and location of car according to Matt Harwood is BOGUS! https://www.ebay.com/itm/1949-Buick-Roadmaster/323733618351
  10. Just saw this rare Buick factory option on Ebay. Made by Wagner for Buicks to prevent car rolling backwards on a hill. Prevents rolling backwards while starting off on a steep incline. Likely sold quite a few in San Francisco! https://www.ebay.com/itm/1941-1948-Buick-NOS-NoRol-safety-brake-hill-holding-device-1947-1946-1942/202616765345?hash=item2f2ce67ba1:g:jNwAAOSwuvpcS2yV:sc:FedExHomeDelivery!37076!US!-1&vxp=mtr&frcectupt=true
  11. incorrect trunk fabric is one of several clues this is a restored vehicle. Another is the turned dash panels which were tinted lacquer over raw steel which with age is never as bright and uncolored as the ones in this car.
  12. Looks like it has ended early so I sure hope someone didnt get burned. There were 42 bids by nine bidders so with that much interest why end early after only two days running? I think it was another bogus auction.
  13. The photos dont show much but the seller sent me about 35 pics and also claimed it was fully restored " to the highest standards" . I am not sure what you are looking at thats tattered but I did think some of the restoration work on the interior was less then the best. Hope it is for real but email I got was very familiar. I have asked seller to allow an inspection by a friend that is nearby and if he says yeas to that its for real but if not for some excuse then buyer beware. Also how can you have 380 feedbacks next to your seller ID but then when you go to look at the feedbacks there are only twenty eight? This is not possible unless it has been manipulated. Check it out and let me know because in 20 years of Ebaying I have never seen this before.
