    The phone number listed is in Michigan… so at least that is consistent. Only one pic, taken at a car event of some kind, could be a caution flag. But as long as the buyer checks this out in person before buying it, gets valid title transfer, and isn’t convinced to provide any money via wire or Paypal or other means to “hold it”, they shouldn’t get scammed.
    What do you think, Dave?

    It did seem to be a pretty low price. But, maybe the seller doesn’t have a concept of the value?

    The value of something varies with the part of the country you live in. I wouldn’t pay more than that for this Jeepster. Reasonable prices are out there if you search for it. Some parts of the country just have “stupid high” prices. We who view the internet get to see the variety of prices. And that’s how some people make their money…..they find cars at realistic prices and then they find buyers who are willing to pay higher prices. The people who really make money “flipping” old cars, sell them to overseas buyers that have more money than brains. When you spend $30,000 on a shiny old car, it’s still an old car. (Meaning it still needs the same TLC as a non-restored, running vehicle.)

    So, that term, “not knowing the value” means that the seller doesn’t know how to connect with buyers that are willing to pay top dollar.

    Nice looking Jeepster! I predict that it will make a new owner happy very soon. Hopefully, the car “flippers” won’t get to it first, and an every-day, potential owner is not cheated out of the opportunity to enjoying owning and driving a Jeepster that’s within their budget.

    Pictures in two different locations is a good sign. Quality of rebuild is one price factor (looks good from 30 feet).
