Quality Pre-Owned Vehicles That Are Fun To Buy!

Thank you for considering my vehicle! My name is Ed Zarick and I have been a licensed and bonded, independent auto dealer for over 25 years here in the Sunshine State. Florida dealer licensed as Ed’s Florida Cars. For over the past 16 years, I have sold literally hundreds of quality cars and trucks at great prices here on eBay Motors and will continue to do so for years to come. I work by myself and I can afford to sell for less than the car lots do. This is no part-time endeavor for me! It's what I do to support my family! In order for me to stay competitive in a crowded market place, I have to work harder then the other guy to earn your business and that is what I do. You will always get 100% personalized service to be sure your experience is a good one. Never any extra "dealer fees" or other ridiculous add-ons, just a simple and honest, no-nonsense approach that is easy to deal with. I want to earn your business now and in the future! Just check my feedback, it speaks volumes!

All my offerings are put through a service/safety check and road test to be sure they are safe and road worthy. I make sure the oil has been changed and do an inspection of the brakes, belts, hoses, cooling system, fluid levels, etc. Of course, every vehicle will ride and drive with the engine and transmission performing as expected. If you would prefer to have a third party inspect the car before bidding, I am most willing to help you facilitate that. I know of several shops in town that will deal with you directly or you are welcome to locate one on your own. Either way, I will deliver the car there for you and pick it up after inspection for no extra charge. Of course, the shop would charge a nominal fee and would bill you directly, but I will even reimburse your inspection charges if you end up buying the vehicle!!!

I know it can be hard to buy a vehicle that you can't see in person, so I will do my best to present it as well as I possibly can through pictures and accurate description. What you will get from me is an honest, down to earth presentation with any notable cosmetic issues disclosed. What you won't get is a flowery, over exaggerated sales pitch that makes a car seem better than new or bigger than life! Check my feedback and you will see what other happy customers have to say. That's my best advertisement! If you have ANY questions at all, please feel free to call me on my mobile phone @ 239-940-4170. I am more than willing to to address any concerns you may have about the vehicle, the price, finalizing the deal, taking possession or any other details. If there is ANYTHING at all I can do to help you make your decision, please just let me know!! I want to be better than the "other guys"!

Well, on to the vehicle! Just so you know, whether you decide to fly in and drive home or have the vehicle shipped, I will assist you any way I can on this end by setting up the transport or meeting with you at a mutual convenient time. I am very easy to work with!!! Please be sure to read the bidding/buying guidelines at the bottom of the page, they are very important. I thank you in advance for your business and your trust in me!


MY $500.00 GUARANTEE When you arrive to pick up your vehicle and if it's not what I described, I will refund your deposit and give you $500.00 for your time. Also if you have the vehicle shipped to you and it is not what I described, I will refund your purchase price + $500.00 for your inconvenience. I want you to be confident in my description so that you can bid without worry.
*does not apply to immaterial or minor imperfections, just the important aspects of the vehicle only. Any damages incurred during transportation and shipping are covered by the transporters or the customers insurance and are not applicable to my guarantee. Customer is responsible for all shipping charges to receive and to return vehicle to Ft. Myers and the purchase price will be refunded when I receive the vehicle in the same condition as when delivered. Customer must contact me within 24 hours of receipt of vehicle.


If you have been looking for a super cool, retro rod classic car, then you definitely need to check out this absolutely gorgeous 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top Coupe! What a sweet ride! And done right too! Not just the looks, but the mechanics also. She starts right up every morning, drives straight and strong with no shakes, cold air conditioning, the transmission shifts tight and smooth, handles corners very well with the added sway bars and stops excellent with the power front disc brakes. It really is a pleasure to drive, feels much better than original with all the added upgrades and I would not be afraid to drive it anywhere. This was no cheapy resto by any means as you will see below in the 70+ pictures that speak for themselves! There was a whole bunch of money spent on this beauty for sure!

The color is a Coral Pearl with custom flames under clear and a white pearl interior that really looks sweet! Very expensive professional paint job that looks the part and rechromed bumpers with stainless trim. Just some of what the owner listed- new 350 V-8 crate motor, (the working odometer shows 06,406 miles, that may reflect the miles since the build was completed), Edelbrock carb and aluminum intake, oversize aluminum radiator, billet aluminum accessories, cold Vintage Air Conditioning, Flowmaster dual exhaust, 700 R4 transmission, Full Moon Eyes Gauge kit, custom billet steering wheel w/tilt, front seat belts, Sony Xplod CD stereo with custom speakers and amps, new glass all the way around, power steering, power brakes, front slotted discs, rear drums, front and rear anti-sway bars, 2” drop spindles and 17” polished American Racing wheels w/Falken Ziex radials. I really am impressed with the way this was all put together, it just has that right stance and the right feel!

No way in the world could you replace this car for what I am asking for it. I would imagine the paint job alone had to run $10k plus! And the original 61 coupe they started with was a solid, practically rust free car that must have come from a dry climate. Just try to find one of those! Recently traded in on a high end exotic, I was very fortunate to get it and offer for sale here.

Anyway, be sure to look over the features and the 70+ pictures below with descriptions. This will give you an excellent overview to help with your decision. PLEASE feel free to call me directly on my cell phone with any questions at all or to discuss a reasonable offer. You can reach me @ 239-940-4170. I want you to be completely comfortable with your transaction and enjoy the whole experience! By the way, I will be leaving on a 2 week vacation May 17th, so unless you come before then I would not be able to facilitate you coming down to drive it home until I get back. If you opt to have it shipped, which I would imagine most people would, I do have people to help with that on my end.
Just as pretty in person with nothing to take away from the clean look! It turns heads every where it goes and would be a star at any car show!







Little ding in the molding.
All re-chromed bumpers!


Polished American racing rims w/Falken Ziex Radials! Fronts are 215/50R17’s.
Rears are a deeper dish wheel with 245/45ZR17’s. Deep tread on all.

Sweet flames! All under the clear coat, professionally done. Very expensive paint job!

All new glass all the way around.

Way too light to show up in a picture, you have to look hard to see it in person and barely there, some hazing in the glass at the top of the rear window. Not worth messing with in my opinion, it’s too light. I just like to mention what I see.
Beautiful stainless trim!
A small blended repair spot at the top of the fender. Probably a scratch repair, done nicely and barely noticeable. I think the camera flash makes it look worse than in person.
Like I said above, a very solid car!










Solid trunk area!
Amps and a sub woofer under the package tray.


Still has the original stampings!


These small spots bubbling under the paint is the only body rust I noticed. Considering the age and the rest of it being so solid, this is not a big deal at all.


This car must have come from a dryer climate!








Love the attention to detail!
350 crate motor! Runs great!



I love the color combination!













With all that is offered here, my buy it now price should make a lot of sense! Take advantage of a quick purchase with no chance of losing it to someone else or I would consider a close offer. It is sold this way so you know what the price is, honestly offered with no games! I do advertise many of my vehicles locally, but if it is still listed here, it's still for sale! Of course, being an older car, it is sold “as is” and as pictured/described.

Please don't let the fear of buying sight unseen keep you from getting something you want. With my $500.00 guarantee, you have basically no risk buying online. Just give me a call on my cell @ 239-940-4170 and we can talk about anything you need to know! Please be sure to look over my buying guidelines below, they should answer most of your questions.


Well, that's my vehicle! You can always bid with confidence on any of my offerings as I strive very hard to offer quality along with an honest description. I have literally sold hundreds of cars and trucks here on eBay and built a very strong feedback rating, so you can feel comfortable with whom you are dealing. If you have any questions or concerns about anything at all, I am always just a phone call away. My cell number is 239-940-4170 and I have it on Monday through Saturday from morning until late at night. PLEASE feel free to give me a ring! I thank you for your interest in my vehicle!



Bidding/Buying Policies

  • The advertised vehicle will be described as accurately as I can, but remember these are used vehicles, they will show signs as such. As stated before, each offering is checked over and inspected before selling, but you are not bidding on nor am I selling new or high priced certified pre-owned cars, so there may be parts of the vehicle that are not like new. Depending on the age of the vehicle, the various systems involved will be at different levels of wear/service life and there may be the typical small chips/dings, blems and other signs of normal wear, inside and out, that you would expect on used vehicles. Obviously, I cannot possibly show or detail every little thing that would be on any used car. I will do my best to describe all the major things so you are clear on what you are buying, but I encourage you to call with any questions you may have before bidding. I want you to be well informed! You can always get ahold of me on my cell @ 239-940-4170. I will be more than glad to walk around the car while on the phone and describe everything I see to give you a hands on view. PLEASE READ MY FEEDBACK! It speaks volumes of how I do business! Of course, all vehicles are sold "as-is" with no warranty expressed or implied unless there is any remaining factory warranty. Cars are mechanical things and mechanical things can stop working! Especially electrical components. Like a light bulb, they can work perfectly, than all of a sudden, not! I am not responsible for check engine, service or other indicator lights or what ever else may stop working after you purchase. I have made all my history statements based on information readily available to me and cannot warrant or guarantee the information or statements as such. Also, there may or may not be extra keys, manuals, remote fobs or other accessories. If not pictured, it's probably not there.
  • I ask that all successful bidders please contact me within 24 hours of auction end to begin process of completing the sale.
  • Customer is responsible to obtain their own insurance on any vehicle purchased. Insurance is provided by the transport company for all vehicles during shipping, but my insurance ceases to cover anything once it is sold. Sold being described as when funds are received in full, not at the time the vehicle is delivered.
  • According to Federal guidelines, all vehicles 10 or more years old are sold exempt from mileage guarantees unless specifically mentioned. If I have documentation to back up the mileage on these older cars, I will.
  • Payment must be made by cash-in-person, cashiers check, money order or bank to bank wire transfer. A $500.00 non-refundable deposit will be expected within 3-5 days following close of auction and remainder paid within 7-10 days. If you have a special situation, please feel free to call ahead of time to discuss. I am very easy to deal with!
  • Florida residents must include 6% sales tax. According to Florida law, if an out of state purchaser takes delivery of a vehicle in the state of Florida I am obligated as a licensed dealer to collect sales tax at a rate equal to the purchasers state sales tax and not to exceed 6%. The purchaser will then be given a notarized form from the State of Florida proving tax paid to present to their tax collectors office for sales tax credit. You DO NOT pay sales tax twice! Any additional fees or taxes will be the responsibility of the purchaser. This does not apply to vehicles shipped out of state, only ones picked up in Florida.
  • Buyer assumes the cost and responsibility of shipping. I already have contacts to ship the vehicle anywhere in the USA, so I can help arrange this for you and give you cost estimate ahead of time. If you are going to fly in and drive home, I will gladly pick you up from the Ft. Myers International Airport and provide you with a free 30 day temporary plate for your vehicle. You must have insurance before a temporary plate can be issued. Temporary plates are not provided for vehicles shipped, only ones picked up in person.
  • All vehicles do have clear titles and are guaranteed to be clean and free of any liens or brands such as salvage or rebuilt. Occasionally, a title will be in transit from the bank or dealership because of a loan payoff and may not be in my immediate possession, but will be processed to you as soon as physically possible.
  • Any buyer with a negative rating will be ignored unless he contacts me first with a good explanation. There is no sense in running up the prices by people who have problems following through with commitments. Remember you are entering into a legally binding contract.
  • By the bidding and/or purchase of this vehicle, buyer obligates him or her self to agree with all guidelines and statements made on this auction page by the seller including "as-is" no warranty statements, sales tax regulations, and insurance requirements.

  • My promise to you is to be as fair, honest and helpful as possible. I have been in the car business for a long time and have enjoyed much success here locally and selling on E-Bay. That did not come about by mistreating my customers or underhanded dealings. Give me a try and you will be pleasantly surprised. You can e-mail me with any questions or feel free to give me a call on my mobile phone @ 239-940-4170. Thank you again!
