I'm guessing $25,000 is a fair offer for this monument to Henry Ford....I just don't have room for it.

Hey folks! Don't bid on this! I thought, due to the price, that it was a true monument (as was described in the item details) easily twice the size of an actual model T, and had even lined up a few trucking options and a crane to have it installed. I just realized it was 5 inches by 2 inches. I just put in an offer for $3.00 so nobody offer any more for this treasure ok? ;)

This has got to be one of my favorite e-bay posts of all time. Some of my favorite descriptions:
"Cast Iron...or bronze"
"1908.....or 1922"
"Art deco historical piece of cast iron car design"
"will add a special elegance to your home or office"
"monumental statue"
"a important piece of history"
"an example of historic architecture"

You've got to admire the seller for swinging for the fences....

I was going to offer $0.99, but then I realized the shipping is $49.99... if that offer got accepted, he'd still make probably $40.00 on shipping off of me. No thanks.

I actually think it is rare! Most of these had a slot for coin's in the roof! bud.

Do the Chinese copies have slots for coins? Maybe the slot in this one was welded shut with nickel or brass welding rod!

Oh oh. I hate to admit it but it's true. Hey, it was the end of the sixties, I was a long way from home and had gotten into some banana beer.

I think he's asking so much to cover the cost of his ad on ebay!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Adam Doleshal on Thursday, April 03, 2014 - 11:09 am:

Be careful... I wouldn't offer even $5 for it... With $49 shipping, it is possible that they could accept a $5 offer and you would be legally obligated to buy it for $55, which is still WAY more than it is worth.

The big price tag may just be a scam to get some unsuspecting fool who thinks they might get a deal to offer $100 for it!

I've heard of this sort of thing happening before.
