No reserve, current bid is 99 cents!
Current bid: US $102.50 [ 3 bids ]
She's seen better days. I'll be surprised if it goes to $500.
Current bid price is already greater than what a junkyard around here will give you for that car.
all I see is parts parts parts if it was close to me I would buy.
After reading the seller's description, I find it remarkable that he is able to figure out how to have an Ebay account:
“READ THE DETAILS I’m sell my classic 1988 Escort GT So let’s talk about the facts with car. The is not drivable but Yes it’s still start up. Yes it can move but I will not move the car to prevent further engine damage with just blown rod. now I’m going to list the good things and bad things. I’m not selling the car for parts. I’m selling the car as a whole car. Here is the list of good things first. Now I just Spend with last 6 months about $1200 dollars in new parts list below and car has now sitting in this few months now...."
I agree, a good parts car, or a major project.
I have Friends from India and they talk the same, so looked kinda normalish for me lol.
I don't get it... it was for sale on ebay with no reserve, and was bid on, so how come it isn't sold?
I thought I knew how auctions work, but maybe ebay is different?
The seller pulled it, probably because he knew it was going to go too cheap.
I've never sold anything on ebay, but now that you mention it, it seems that a couple years ago I "won" an item but the seller welched on the deal. I made a point of ignoring that seller ever after.
So I guess that's acceptable practice on that site.
I suppose the seller could always come up with an excuse like the item was stolen before shipping, he broke it, the car was impounded or caught fire, etc. etc.
Yes, Ebay asks what happened that it's no longer available, but it leaves it open to a very artistic interpretation.
