Dave - I guess the guy just subscribes to W.C. Field's theory,......and the guy is just looking for that "sucker"!

Now come on guys, he just put the decimal in the wrong place and his zero key stuck ... ... Should be 4.50. ... At least that's what I have sold mine for ....

I contacted the seller (just had to). He said I was wrong and he has already sold some for $300.00 each. I guess he figured he was giving them away. You guys in America should bring your old parts here to sell them in Canada. This kind of thing is normal here.

Dave - I saw that and sent him a message too......I didn't get a response though. I have a bunch in the garage......guess I'm rich! :-)

Greg, if I were you, I would pay a visit to a car museum and try one of those wrenches on every car there. It just might fit a Rolls Royce. Think how much those guys would pay?

O.K. Did you not know that it is a tarnished Gold Plated wrench. It just needs a bit of polishing to make it look like new.

Rare - (of a thing) not found in large numbers and so of interest or value.

What a small exclusive group.

It is, after all, the correct Ford wrench for adjusting the front wheel bearings with cars equipped with steel spoke wheels !

Good chance to list your wrench(s) on same site for $100.00 ea. Would look like a bargain.

Might as well Gary. The ads are free. I would try selling two for $450.00. That should give you a solid edge over your competitor.

Dave and Mike... You should cut a deal with him... As a sales agent for you. Imagine what he could sell a water pump for!

Down here in the lower 48 we'd call That a shovel ready job!

Here's another example on the same site. The seller has had this car for sale for YEARS at $19,995. It never sold. The answer? Raise the price another six grand!!! :-)

"But honey, I'm trying to sell the car - really I am it's just a sign of how bad the economy is and........"

Smart guy there!

All their other cars (except for two) are post-2000. They don't seem to know much about older cars. No wonder they think this is a Coupe.... :-)

So the example car is a part of history. I spent three years documenting a local Model T Coupe, owned by the common man, to nominate it to the National Register of Historic Places. The nominated car survived the various economic ups and downs, the Depression of 1929, the floods of 1939, the scrap drive of WWII, the rush for the chrome fins, the muscle cars of the 1970's, and various other atrocities that are the demise of old cars. If you are going to state that a particular car is a part of history or is rare, have proof. And please do some research on just what you have at hand.
