1931 Deluxe Coupe [on ebay]
 

I have not been on Fordbarn for a long while .Way to much going on and still going on. I want to bring to your attention about a 1931 late coupe on ebay. # 112050978436 . The seller states one of his cars in his collection [ ALL ABOUT 1 MONTH] BEST he has ever had in 40 + years. Compared to what he has owned YES. He is a buyer and seller. I know this car. It was my Godfathers since 1996. [WHEN IT WAS FINISHED] NOT 12 years ago as buyer stated. Bird in the Hand restoration finished the car and was sold for $16,000.00 .IT HAS A LOT OF REPRODUCTION PARTS on this car including all fenders , side aprons and running boards. Bumpers , clamps , hardware , hubcaps , valve stems , incorrect plating interior and so on.. I detailed the car as much as my Godfather was willing to spend. I was the one that turned his car around from all second place to first place awards [And timing was a factor] . If you know anyone bidding on this car just let them know its not what it seems to be as a award winning car... Will never do good in MARC , MAFCA and A.A.C.A. Grand Nation competition . Senior A.A.C.A. was a lucky shot.. thank you ..I did try to buy the car from my Godfathers kids [ they called me while the man selling the car now was in the driveway] they gave me no time to respond . I offered what the car is worth $15,000.00 before they decided to sell it. I believe he bought it for just over $16,000.00 and not more. :eek:

it looks like you missed a great looking car. Maybe a bit of remorse on your part. Wayne

Why not tell ebay about it if it's not ligit? They should take the ad down and maybe ban the seller.

You can't blame them for taking the highest offer! Wayne

Unless I missed something in his walk around video at no time does he state that the car does not have repro parts, he does say it was restored from an "original car" but never mentions what it was restored with.

Unless someone point blank asks the question "is the car all Henry steel, and are any Repro parts used?" He is probably ok within EBay rules. If someone asks and he says there is not any repro parts then bay may do something.

I think he went out of his way NOT to mention all the parts were original, and probably did that on purpose....I would think if all the parts were original he would be sure to mention that.

Has the seller really done anything wrong except outbid a lower bidder ? Not in my opinion. If he wants his Godfather's car he will have to bid on Epay with everyone else. Wayne
