EBay madness

Well he's still in business and a collection of vintage American cars isn't exactly a sign of a bloke with no money.

He's probably doing better than most of us.

He currently has four Studebakers for sale on ebay, one listed twice at different prices!

 

A look at his other items for sale, listed at highest price first, shows an interesting and eclectic selection, many at seemingly very high prices. Given the number of items he has for sale and his ebay rating, he seems to be getting it right. An indication of the "collectors culture" he is selling into?

 

Edited to add.

He is adept at ascribing items in headings to well know highly regarded builders, then saying *possibly by" in the body of the advert .

 

He has one Gauge 1 carriage I rather like the look of, but at his prices and descriptive record I wouldn't consider buying it without being able to inspect it first hand.

Everyone's favourite seller.

How much?! Well into O gauge territory.

 

"One coach has the bogies supplied loose for you to glue back into position. It is also missing one buffer."

 

For this price I'd expect them to be mint - not needing repairs and replacement parts...

The pricing makes no commercial sense?

Another vendor with krap feedback 

Not that bad really; they don't sell that much and two neutrals in the last year seem to be down to a buyer not reading the listing properly or the seller not being able to send it due to the lockdown in India.

Still a nonsense price though.

You can get it cheaper than that; he has listed it twice, with different photos https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133886290071?hash=item1f2c3ea897:g:gjkAAOSwtkVc~dCX

 

"Vintage 0-Gauge clockwork M7? Not seen one of those!"

It scales out at Gauge 1.  I'm curious as to who made it, B-L possibly?

Bing for Bassett-Lowke in both 0 and 1; looks more like the Gauge 1 version:

than the 0 Gauge version:

The chief tell-tale seems to be the wheels.

 

It's about the same as the difference between 00 and N in the 1970s.

Got an R3911 the other day when ebay was having their 20% off offer for about 60 quid. Naturally it didn't have a sound decoder inside, but I've got a Hornby TTS Valenta decoder that I haven't installed in an HST yet.

 

Or perhaps a Coronation Pacific decoder instead...

 

Might be fun! :crazy:
