    Both nice cars, although I prefer the red one. I have seen that style molding on others.... was probably an option. I'm kinda surprised there's zero bids on both, so close to auction end times.... I don't think the prices are out of line for either one. Just another sign of our shaky economy, I guess.

    :yes: I agree. A couple of years ago or less, those cars would have had alot more attention paid to them, as they are both nice.

    The problem is both auctions are starting out with high bids. Maybe even the price he wants for them. Auctions like that hardly ever get much action.

    I've sold a couple of cars on ebay, and the best way to do it is to let them bit UP TO a number. NOT to start with a "home run" ball off the bat.

    Chances are, (assuming they get no bids this round) if the cars are relisted with a low starting bid and a reserve, they WILL get action, and may well bit to what he wants.

    I'm not a fan of "reserve" style auctions, as I think they draw lots of "wannabe" bidders who put in low bids that they know won't even come close to meeting the reserve so they can dream about bidding on cars that they know they don't have a prayer of being able to afford. If you start at a fair price like both of these 67 convertibles are listed at, you may not get as many bids, but the folks who do bid will hopefully be serious about actually buying your vehicle if they win the auction.

    Just two different ways to look at ebay auctions I guess.

    Both of these auctions have a "reserve" more or less. The Coronet has no "reserve", so it will sell at the first bid......hence it hits what amounts to the seller's "reserve", or "the lowest price he is willing to sell for"

    The Dart on the other hand HAS a reserve, and I doubt that the opening bid is the reserve amount. So he is shooting himself in the foot for sure.

    People get caught up in auctions. That's why they wind up paying more than they should for stuff. It's exciting. And I think it helps the bidding over all. But you start HIGH you don't get all that.

    A shiny new Quarter says neither car gets a bid.

    To me, having a reserve on an ebay auction, is kind of like when you go to a swap meet and ask the seller of a part you're interested in how much are you asking and they reply, oh I don't know, make me an offer. :Groaner: The seller KNOWS what he wants for the part and the buyer KNOWS what he will pay for that part, so why waste both person's time playing mind games? I hate bullshitting, just tell me what you need and if that's what I feel is fair, done deal. I'd NEVER make it in the retail sales business! :no::rolling:

    With ebay's new pricing structure for selling cars, they are trying to address the issue of people setting reserves extremely high with no intention of completing the transaction through them. Instead, they (the sellers) are using ebay to draw eyeballs to the vehicle and doing the deal on the side. This way (with the old method), you only paid the $40-$45 listing fee and not the sales % on the back end.

    I have to read the new policy closer because I read something about getting to list x amount of cars for free within a certain period but I also read that there is some kind of $125 flat fee (per transaction) involved also. It's interesting to see (again, at least with selling cars) how ebay is realizing that they are just no longer just an auction marketplace but also an advertising vehicle and therefore are trying to capitalize on that.

    The moulding is correct for the "500" it is similar to the "440" moulding but a bit wider, 440 moulding is below on my coronet.
