We are Euclid Car Co. at 1231 E. 286th St., Euclid, OH 44132. We have been in the used car business for over 40 years and we love to sell cars on eBay. The buyer gets a car he or she wants, and the dealer gets a car sold. Don't participate in the auction if you're not 100% sure you can pay for the car when the auction is over. We depend on the sales of these cars for income to our used car lot. eBay considers the winner to be in a binding contract with Euclid Car Co., so any non-paying bidder will be reported to eBay. Please do not call us when the auction is over to tell us:

"My wife won't let me buy the car."
"I hit the button by mistake."
"My son or daughter bought the car on my account and I don't want it."
"The car is too far away, I don't want it."
etc, etc.
We only accept wires, certified checks, and cash. We do not take deposits, Paypal, credit cards (cash or debit), or checks in the mail. We will not deal with a loan from your bank. All cars must be paid for within 3 days of the auction ending, no excuses. Please make sure you have the funds available before you bid on our vehicles. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, and we're sure that all other car dealers feel the same.
If you're the lucky winner of our auction, we will email you immediately to congratulate you and give you our number, 216-990-3880 (Lou). Most of our auctions end between 7 PM and 10 PM. We would like a call from the winner within 12 hours of auction ending so we know that they are a real buyer. If not, we will offer it to the 2nd highest bidder. If the original winner has still not contacted us after 4 days they will be reported to eBay as a non-paying bidder. Thank you again for reading.

This is a no-reserve auction, which means that the last highest bidder when the auction is over will win the car. Every time you bid on the car keep in mind that you have an opportunity to be the owner, so your bid means something.

We encourage all bidders to stop out, personally examine the car and drive it for themselves. If you can’t personally make it out to check out this vehicle, simply find a local mechanic to look at the vehicle and give you a personal report on the condition. Ebay also offers a service like this! Please do this BEFORE bidding on the vehicle!

This is an as-is vehicle, which means that once you buy it, you own it with all faults (known or unknown). With the purchase of this vehicle, the buyer will pay for all repairs. We sell all cars as-is, which means you will pay all costs for any repairs. The dealer assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any oral statements about the vehicle.

If you need a 30-day tag, it’s $18.50. We handle the transfer of the title. We will also have to collect the tax for your county if you live in one of the following states: Arizona, California, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, and South Carolina.

We would like the vehicle picked up from our lot within 7 days of auction ending. There will be a $100 paperwork fee added on to the final sale price of the vehicle, along with a $15 title fee. By Ohio law, we must transfer this title into your name. The reason being is that if we would just send you the title and it was to get lost, there would be a problem. Or if we would send you the title and you didn't transfer it for several years and it got lost, it would be an even bigger problem. We follow the law of our state and will make sure that the title is transferred correctly for all customers. We will not pay any shipping fees, but we would be glad to assist your shipper in picking up your vehicle. If you have any questions, call Lou at 216-990-3880. Good luck bidding!

Thank you for taking the time to look at our 1947 Oldsmobile Coupe. This is a rare car, and there's not that many of them left in original unmolested condition like this one is. This car is 100% solid from bumper to bumper. The frame is also in excellent shape, just flaking due to the fact that it's 70 years old. This is one of the first hydromatic transmissions used by Oldsmobile. The gentleman we bought this car from purchased it 30 years ago, and built a garage at his house just for this car. About 20 to 25 years ago, he was driving the car and just about lost the brakes. So he took the drive shaft off and towed it home with his truck. He then put it in his brand-new garage, started working on the brakes, and never finished. So the car has been sitting in his garage all this time, and now that he's moving, I had the chance to purchase it from him.

As you can see in the pictures, the new brakes are already in the trunk of the car, ready to be installed, with new wheel cylinders. Of course the drive shaft will be put in the back seat floor, because it's still off from 25 years ago when he towed it. We tried to start it. It fired a couple times, but the wires, cap, the rotor and the coil are all 30 to 40 years old, and they would all have to be replaced along with the belts and hoses to make this an everyday driver. The miles on the car read 84,000, but being that the car is 70 years old, we can'tguaranteethe miles to be actual. The interior is in great shape, except for the driver's seat. The body is really in nice shape for its age, all 100% solid. And the bumpers eventually should bere-chromed.

If someone is looking for a minor project to have a beautiful car in the end, this car could be right for you. Most of these cars came through with 6 cylinders, but not that many were 8 cylinders + automatic. So if you win the car I think you've really got something special. I'm sure this car will go up in value a lot over the next 10 to 20 years, especially being that they don't even make Oldsmobiles anymore. And the hood ornament still has the original plastic wings on the airplane. We also have an extra set of rear tail light lenses that are shown in the trunk, and 2 extra factory Oldsmobile hubcaps for that year in the trunk. The trunk is very solid on this vehicle. It's amazing for a car of this age to be as solid and original as this one is. We hope you like it as much as we do, and we're going to sell it to the last highest bidder when the sale is over.
