My understanding is the high bidder - a member here - flaked after winning the auction.

The forum says don't comment on the ads. I beg to differ about being a flake. I did not comment, but will defend myself if questioned. How about we just leave opinion out of the "deal".

As earlier requested, pictures of the critical areas would be very helpful

Thanks

at the bottom of the eBay ad, the seller added a note dated yesterday. (lower paragraph)
so, I'm assuming this is the reason the deal fell through.
but for those asking questions about the problem areas of the car, perhaps the high bidder can elaborate on why he chose to pass on this 914.
would be helpful and appreciated.
Thanks!

"On Feb-21-21 at 11:22:59 PST, seller added the following information:
Please do not bid unless you are committing to buy the car. These are very recent pictures and I assure you they are of the actual car for sale. I have done my best to accurately describe the car along with the pictures attached however bear in mind this is a 48 year old car and however good the information I have provided it can not replace the value of inspecting the car in person. I welcome any inspection prior to the end of the auction and if you have any questions please get in touch and I will do my best to answer them. If you win the auction you are agreeing to arrive with funds in hand to collect the car, not to then perform a inspection and decide whether you still want to buy it. If you are not happy with these terms please again, DO NOT BID. Thank you and I appreciate your interest."

I think @paulFV8 has asked the questions that needs to be answered. I dont think it is fair for me to publicly comment on it, since the seller is trying to re-sell it and has an active advertisement going.

At this point not providing pictures of the critical areas seems counter productive. I for one am tempted to assume the worst now. Why not provide those pictures and let potential buyers see for themselves? Or is there something lurking that is worse than we could imagine?

He is a real person and the car is real. Seen and touched it, but did NOT inspect it for any body issues but can confirm it was an inland car. Wheels and brake and suspension stuff all real, saw it happen at the workshop I use.

Seller, Andrew, put a lot of time and money into it but never really got it running right. Car had engine bay wiring issues that I helped identify which is the extent of my involvement in the car.
BillJ
I am sure the person is real, just not really checking back here lol
PaulFV8
Andrew, pm sent. Help me stay in the bidding. Please
Thanks

As with any remote car purchases extensive pictures and shared diligence via a forum is a very good idea. Just to be super extra clear I didn’t inspect this car - just tried to help Andrew with some engine issues.

I’ve tried to reach seller on EBay to address any signs of rust etc with pics but have never received feedback. Good luck with the auction/sell.

Andrew, while I know this is more work for you, my advice would be to follow what Cary did on his post for a 914-6 roller conversion. Remove the rocker panels and post photos of the longs. That will go a long way to resolving questions on serious issues and is certain to improve your selling price.

stay safe

I see the seller took a big drop on original selling price to $9,014.00 on EBAY 02/27/21. From $14,100.00 sad.gif

I was tempted to bid when I saw it was @6K with about 25 minutes to go, but I wouldn't have gone that high anyway. Way too much room for speculation over exactly what he was hiding. Or maybe not hiding anything just too lazy to get meaningful pictures and maybe that cost him money in the end. There were certainly a lot of nice parts on it!
