General Mopar Discussions / Gotta love dem fins
« on: October 03, 2008, 09:21:48 AM »
Ah yes....nice photos of some pretty fine looking automobiles there 300Rag....The most gorgeous cars ever made....the late 50's Mopar fin cars, second in line...the rest of the full- size Mopars especially (fuseys)...that's it. All the rest....well....crush 'em and make bridges with them so we can drive our Mopars around....our infrastructure does need some work.... furyfever2008-10-03 15:09:25

General Mopar Discussions / Christine clones less expensive?
« on: October 03, 2008, 07:06:19 AM »
Just wondering if anyone is up to speed on this topic. Would one that is interested in buying  a 57/58 Plymouth expect to pay less for a Christine clone than say a restored to original 57/58 Belvedere? I do not believe the value guides can help on this...Am I correct? I know the restored to original Belvederes are a real quick sale in the low 20's with most starting price tags in the mid-high 20k range. I just came up with this thought because a Christine clone came up on e-bay...has a 383..says its an 18 yr. old restored clone...Here's the link:

Thanks Ardog...I would pay his price if the car didn't need anything. The aftermarket seatcovers would have to go, the door panels are worn and the chrome needs replating/stainless needs straightening/polished. I'm sure there's more but that's what I know about as of right now. Perhaps he'll come to his senses. It kills me, I've called the broker on two seperate occasions now and both times he tells me that he has somebody else hot on it... He trys to make me think I need to act quickly....Nobody commented on this 60 that I found yesterday. It's near Detroit if anyone is interested. A nice 20 footer that's starting to rust out again. Check it out below. (1/4 price of the Fury)

This looks like a fun car. Needs quite a bit of work though.....It does'nt look like it needs work from 20 ft......I'm tempted....I keep promising myself I'll get one that's all ready been done up right.....So far haven't found it though, mainly because those cars are big $...and the ones that are priced right go quick...

People's taste is such an interesting thing.
If it ends up on a logo I'll not buy one.
Just my opinion.
 However, if you want it, how much do you want it?  If they guy won't budge....

Thanks for the info. Roger....Keep hanging around here. I'll have a fin car someday soon....Polaraco has one too a....59 Saratoga. I'm sure there's others...The guy with the 60 Fury is in Palm Springs, CA. I offered him $17,500 but he is standing firm on $21k...by the time I get it home I'll have 23k into it and the interior needs to be redone to get it back to original...all the chrome is getting tired too..Those are expensive upgrades. I'm sure that's why it's still there 6 mos. later....I really like the car though. If you have a line on any 2 door fin car here on the east coast (that you're not interested in) think about me...let me know if you will? thanks. I own a couple of fuselage cars right now...always have wanted a fin car...Where exactly is Bingo, NY? Is it a borough in the city?? I didn't come up with anything when I googled it...Take care..Bob

This was my plan:
I was 110% confident that the reserve would not be met.
I was planning hopefully to bag that car on a second chance offer  at what it truely was worth and then offer it to you....
 
 
 
Gee, Thanks Commando1...that sure was nice of you....What a rollercoaster ride this has been. A few moments ago I was happy Leaburn called Earl and had him end the auction...Now I'm not so sure?? Just kiddin'.....I'm grateful he didn't get big $$$ for it from some poor sap. We all helped someone out whoever it may be...now the owner knows he doesn't have the "holy grail"....

CBarge...Commando1....You are my heros....I am high fivin' you both in my office right now!!! So you were the ones that got him to end it?? Now nobody else will be taken advantage of ...that's the important part. Way to go guys!!! Did he own up to getting the car in NY State?? I wrote to e-bay complaints/contact us and informed them of the feedback thing and want some answers as to how they calculate positive feedback. The way I see it his rating should be about 95%...not 100

All I can say is I hope Earl( the present seller) realizes that the car is a D500 clone and revises his description on E bay to avoid his perfect 100% feedback score.He has been a E bay member since 2001,so he is legit.
More than likely the information provided to him by his client is misleading and is unaware of the magazine article.
IMO,Earl has not really done any serious digging or research on this car at all.
It is a "flipper"

Check out Earl's feedback....How e-bay calculates feedback is a wonder to me....How does this guy get 100% positive when he has 9-10 negatives...a few neutrals too....??? I was amazed when I went through all 9 pages of his feedabck. Certainly doesn't look like 100% positive to me....The first page looks good....but then after that there's red dingers on every page....How does one ask e-bay what's up with that??? IS this the Earl on TV that is trying to make good on all his past blunders...(bad karma guy??)

The auction is over....seller ended it early because the item is no longer for sale......HHMMMMMMM...Did the guy that offer $52,000 buy the car??? Could Earl have sensed the cat getting out of the bag?? Earl's ship may have come in or perhaps The Forward Look guy told him that this car is not  legit and Earl has terminated the auction?? I read through all the posts on the Forward Look site on this topic...kind sketchy at best...Is this motor indeed a 325 then?? Did Earl also taken license to call it a 352 in his e-bay ad?...The guy that sold it to Earl clearly told me it was a 325.... furyfever2008-09-28 23:16:27

General Mopar Discussions / Went to an estate auction

You know...My first thought on the Dremel shoe polisher...COOL...like in a nostalgic way...I didn't even know Dremel made those...I'm taking for granted it's the same company as the the beloved cutoff tool. I love using my dremel tool to cut/grind little stuff.... but it didn't come to mind to polish moldings with it until I saw your photo. Very good idea Lea!!...I really like how you think. We need you at work.

Just thinking....Craig told me it was a "D500 with a 325 Hemi and dual quads". Perhaps He did read the codes on the car and that's why he thought it was the original 325 motor? He did'nt know it was a 352...The new owner Earl figured this out and thinks he has a goldmine...
 
Here's the Craig's ad that I found

The guy (Craig) that just sold it for ~12k.....that I talked to earlier this week in Lyons, NY (the next town to the west of Clyde, NY) told me the former owner did have a poster and that it was still with the car....The former owner took it/displayed it with his car at car shows....He used to frequent the cruise-in, "Sweet Inspirations" up in Fulton, NY. This guy, (Craig) also said that the linkage on the dual carb set-up wasn't stock....but the right one is in the trunk with all the extra parts...The former owner didn't get to install it before he passed away. Craig claimed he got the D500 at a local estate auction...that he had seen the car for years and always lusted after it. When he heard the guy died he went and talked to the widow and she either informed him of the estate auction or just sold it to him outright...not sure exactly what he said now....But this guy that just bought it from Craig (Earl)...that beat me out by literally a few hours...He is not telling the truth at all. He told me over the phone that the car came out of Chicago...and in the ad he says that he's selling it for an elderly man....90 yrs old. Why he's lying about this I 'm not sure. He asked me if I knew about these cars and how much I thought it was worth....Yeah, I love old Mopars...I told him probably 18k or so...He laughed and then told me of the $52,000 offer he just got "that he is going to present to this elderly gentleman" but most likely he will not accept. I then said...your reserve is higher than 52k??...and he said yes...I then said this car is way out of my league and said goodbye. I couldn't believe it....I'm still up...can't sleep again....hmmmm  Well...I feel a little better now....that this car was not born with this Hemi?? But you know, I wouldn't have cared anyway...It's a beautiful solid, straight fin car. That's all that would've mattered to me. I would have enjoyed it that's for sure...for a long time.furyfever2008-09-28 02:15:27
