Helping out the grandkids is way cool. Throw a price at it and see what happens. You never know, worth trying. I sold my F100 this past New Years Day, parked it with a for sale sign and got my price. I thought everyone would be home watching the bowl games!

hamb gets a lot of views from all over the country. doesn't cost a dime. just about everyone I know that is into old hot rods is either on it or at least views it. I think the high end market is a little soft, if its under 7,000 $$ it usually sells a lot faster. sold an all original 70 chevy truck ,driver quality, this summer for a little more than I was expecting to get. just have to be patient and watch how much you put into one.

Mustang sold around 15,000, conv's both in the 50,000 range, and my brother paid 14,000 for a driver quality F1.
Oh man! If people are paying that kind of money for F-1s I outta put mine up for sale

L78Chevelle,

Let me see if I understand your reply correctly. You have had two 1940 Fords for sale for three months and you would not take a $1500 deposit in early September to hold one of the cars for two more months when the buyer offers to pay your full asking price if the direction of the country does change in the presidental election and if the direction of the country does not change, he would let you keep the deposit and not take the car?? I would take that deal in a heartbeat (oops sorry heartbeat is Chevy talk). You win regardless of who wins the presidental election. You sell your car for the asking price or you get $1500 for simply holding the car for two months.

Unless, as I suspect, your response is really tongue in cheek! If you had gotten the buyers offer in writing, at least from my perspective, I wish that he would have came back to buy the car.

Steve/IL
I concur ....

It is a Buyers Market this year

Politics have little or nothing to do with that

All this sounds like gloom and doom.
I'm hoping for better luck.
I put my 41 pickup up for sale on the HAMB and Craigslist last week.
Lots of trade offers, but with not enough cash.
I consider it a hot rod so I didn't list it here.

That's a hell of a truck for the money, Wingfield! You should post it here since it's all Ford. What are you running for tires on there as far as brand and size? I can't seem to find a set of thin white walls that I like, but yours look good.

Put it on a trailer and haul it to the Moultrie and Daytona shows in Nov and enjoy a Fla vacation. If it runs and drives it might sell if you price it reasonable or willing to take a partial trade. HAMB should be a good place for you to advertise but a lot of buyers have stuff they need to sell but the "need to sell" boat is large due to the economy and life's changing priorities.

If its not something very special, hard to find and popular, old car prices are generally way down the last several years but you might find that one buyer looking for what you have and willing to pay your price if it is realistic to 2012 prices.
With the FED printing money like it is going out of style, you may be have to sell it for scrap metal if you hang onto it a few more years. My stuff seems to go down 20% per year.

I suppose posting it here would okay.
The tires are Dean Alpha p 205 75r 15 front and Goodyear p225 75r 15 rear.
