For sale to a good home:a 1950 Ford Deluxe, six cylinder, three speed four, door sedan. This car was acquired Father's Day 2009. (in Texas) It is a good, solid running car. It has been kept as original as possible. The reason for the sale is a reduction of my collection. The sale includes the car, parts, trophies, and documentation. I am asking $15000.00. For information, questions, pictures, etc please contact me via this forum e mail (private mail) and we'll go from there. Please no internet scammers.

Thanks for reading.

You might consider checking out one of the value guides. There's considerable difference between your asking price and what the guides are typically indicating, and it may be scaring off interested buyers not wanting to offer what you may consider a lowball.

Ok What would you value the car at? The price is higher because I finished more work on the interior. I found that starting with a low price may leave you stuck there. The car says asking price not firm price.

The value guides discount the six cylinder (as do some potential buyers), but I think the sixes are better drivers than that ancient V8. Almost as much HP, and more useable torque. If it were my car, I'd try to post some more photos (rather than send them as a reply to an email), and advertise for $9K/offers. I know that's a tough pill to swallow, but if you want to move the car.......

I found out that the V8s were used more and the sixes maybe less than 20%. That brings up the value. Like I said, 15 is an asking price , and I'll listen to potential offers. but I doubt that this can could be found and bought for 9000 anywhere.

Here is a few comps on ebay. I threw in a couple 2 doors just because they came up. That's the only problem with selling kind of common cars. I had a really nice 57 Chevy 4 door. Never got a single call when I advertised it even though I priced it in market. There just isn't alot of enthusiasm for them. Good luck with the sale. I have a couple convertibles, one is pretty rare and still no takers. They have been on the market a year now.

Rarity and desirability aren't the same thing, and I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a collector who wouldn't prefer a V8. People see "V8" in an ad, and their eyes glaze over. Just compare asking prices of '65 Falcon convertibles, and '65 Mustang convertibles. Basically the same car, lots more Mustangs, but the Mustangs are more expensive. Good luck with the sale.
