When a post is not associated with the seller, such as this one, is it ok to talk about the car and values? This listing is only a reference to an ad spotted elsewhere.  I'd like to comment and get feedback from others but will refrain if it is considered in poor taste. Thx.

I feel it is certainly fair game to comment on postings like this. 6T-FinSeeker has been doing this and I personally enjoy the selections he posts. 
IMHO this is a nice car but there is another one posted here which is much more attractive at a lower price, in fact thousands less.

The market is very soft on post WWII - 1954 cars......many nice ones for sale.

Yes, under the rules it is only the direct listings that are off limits for comments.  If it's just a link to a listing somewhere else (like Craig's List or eBay), we are free to comment all we want.

The car is indeed very clean looking. It certainly appears to have been stored in a garage its entire life. The asking price at $15,900 with the comment that they are "negotiable, but not desperate" indicates the seller wants to stay near his asking price.  This, a sedan, would attract a different group, and number of buyers. If the car has been in the family for over 30 years, there is a chance that the owner may has passed on, and now a younger heir is looking to move the car. The tone and details in the ad lend to my theory.  There is a buyer for every car, however I suspect this one will take some time, at that price. It's been posted for 23 days so far.

 

A considerable number of prospective buyers may be handy and do their own repairs and maintenance. Listing details of major items that have may have been addressed might attract these buyers. Brakes, engine valve grind, oil leaks, electrical system maintenance,  tires age, are big ones, as they can be costly. If the list of receipts document some of this work, it would certainly help to list some details in the ad. Just my .02 cents.
