What the heck? Is this a SCAM? Are they trying to trick somebody? Is this even LEGAL? Can you price a car for $54.00 (buy-it-now) and then tell the bidder that they actually have to pay $54,000.00? The description tries to make you think the money is going to a Tech School. What is going on here?

He's broken about 6-7 different ebay rules. With the big no no, listing it for 54 bucks but expecting 54 Grand at the sale. Also listed in the collectibles category, instead of ebay motors. Its purely a way to circumvent paying any significant (if any) ebay fees. Seems a tad over priced too (sarcasm)!

The "1897 AUTOMOBILE" offered by the same seller for $164.00 would be good value if it went for that price.

The description says it has "a planetary gearbox with three brake bands". It ought to stop well.

SCAM! SCAM! SCAM!
Lots of obvious RED FLAGS here.
Does not look like it is located in Chicago as stated. Looks more like somewhere in Europe from the pics. As David states above, probably Germany?

The first photo is not the same T as the rest, black wheels gas lights, rest are natural wheels and electric lights.

In the 2nd pic the name of building across the road is in German. The cars parked next to the Model T in the same pic have European number plates. In one of the "1897 Automobile" pics is "Frankfurt" on the construction site banner. So, yes, Germany looks like the real location.
Not sure why someone would give negative feedback with what would be the equivalent of "excellent". 2nd feedback is in the same broken English as the ads. I think I'd be giving something better than neutral feedback if I got a Hummer for $86.00

The listed phone number is a Chicago number.
His feedback as a buyer is right up there but his fraudulent listing is too.
He's been reported.
