So, this came in trade a couple years ago, and I've had it tucked in my building, meaning to get to it. I'm way to busy in my current role, and never will find the time, so it's time to sell.This car is about as cool a 50's car as you will ever get. The chrome is over the top, way more than my 58 Caddy. It would make a great patina car, rat rod, or a great candidate for restoration. It's solid, straight, and original.I haven't run it for several months, and it will certainly need service, but it ran and drove pretty good. It does have a substantial transmission leak, which is the major flaw. Its also why the car isn't 15-20k.It's stored at my building in Ft Ann, NY. I travel extensively, but I have moved it outside so that it can be inspected. My wife is local, and can meet you to give you keys, title, and take your money. Other than that, I'll be there in several weeks to help with the logistics of a transaction.
Following is the generic description of who I am and what we do. I run the Boat-N-RV and Factory Direct Marine and RV organization. We have 7 locations east of the Mississippi, and several factories in GA. I am the Corporate GM. I have worked for the company for over 20 years, and the owner of all the stores and affiliated companies is one of my close friends. That's my day job. Something I also do is run Ft Ann Traders at the corner of Rt 149 and Rt 4 in Ft Ann, NY. The actual address is 52 George St. What I do there is take all the odd trades of cars and trucks and bikes and planes and trains and things that come in trade to the Boat-N-RV stores, and then wholesale them worldwide to the public through eBay and Craigslist and by lining them up in Ft Ann. We have several other storage locations in the area, so be sure to check where a piece is located before you show up to see it. Always call and or write to make appointment. Some locations are secure and not manned. In addition, we sometimes represent inventory in all our stores, including Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and New York. Everything that we sell on eBay is as-is, except if I noted differently above. Just ask. If you require shipping overseas, please check on the prices as best you can from your end before involving me to assist you in the quote. We have very aggressive FINANCING on items 10 years old or newer, as our company does a significant volume of retail business (over 100 million US dollars) with our banks. I will absolutely consider ANYTHING IN TRADE, AND I MEAN IT. Don't be shy. Just be realistic about the value. We will use all our resources to ensure our evaluation is fair, and our resources are extensive. We have been doing this for a lot of years and will put a real number on absolutely anything, i.e. cars, trucks, boats, RV's, bikes, ATV's, power sports, heavy equipment, inventories, tools, collectibles, antiques, livestock, real estate, planes, trains, ANYTHING! I am not an expert in all that, but I'll know someone who is. I handle the eBay sales of specialty pieces, trade-ins, overstocks, leftovers, repos, demos, etc. . . from the organization, and I will deal personally with you throughout the transaction. I am proud of our feedback rating, selling and shipping mostly big ticket motor vehicle / recreational type items worldwide, some over one million dollars. I would be glad to tell you about how two unhappy customers I have had ended up that way. Customer # 1 purchased a used Class A motor home for less than 4000 dollars and got mad when it thru a belt on his way back to Connecticut. I was sorry. Customer # 2 purchased a Class A motor home for under 5000 dollars, wanted to work on it before driving back to Florida in it, and then changed his oil in our yard without using a pan. Boy was I mad. I should have had him arrested. We all learned lessons each time. My pledge is to make every attempt to do the right thing. You do the same and we will have a great transaction.

I will work my schedule to fit yours as best as possible, but I travel about 3 weeks a month. We are always open and appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.
