Laughable Ebay auctions

These threads pop up often here, so I thought maybe there would be some value in confining them to one thread.

I'll start it off with this $26,000 gem with a rusty valve cover, exposed wiring, unpainted aluminum tub, and the thing I hate the most; "...WAY TOO MUCH TO LIST!!!"

Oh, for $26K you also get:

-Working Wipers
-Working Head Lights
-Working Tail Lights
-Working Turn Signals

Not a horrible Jeep (if you can accept the color scheme), but not worth the asking price by any means.

Too bad it's not polished aluminum. It would be like a chrome plated jeep. :rofl:

I'm pretty sure for $26k I could do just about anything I've ever dreamed of doing to my Jeep! :D

My favorite is the "almost $5000.00 paint job" and the tub isn't even painted.

After seeing the engine... I can't help but wonder what the qualifications of "has been turned into a show quality rock-crawler" is.

I'm really surprised he didn't say that it has keyless entry.

Maybe it used to be owned by Chuck Norris. Now that would be worth it;-)

Cool idea for a thread. However you need to establish a "no key chain" policy up front! :rofl:

"Well $hi@! I got it all apart and now I can't get it back to together again."

Quote from the e-Bay posting "i bought this about 4 years ago an was running at the time,has not ran since then." Maybe because you took it apart??

It's sad that the guy lost his job. I've seen that story play out here more than once. But it is kind of funny how he's posing there with the parts, in the photo.

I'm not sure why that is laughable. the guy had good intentions, and life kicked him in the balls. Lucky for him, he hasn't already dumped a ton of money and time into the rebuild. For $1000, this may be a killer deal for someone looking to perform a ground up.

Yea, getting all the bolts OUT is the hard part. Now you just need to clean er up and put it back together:highfive:

Skerr 07-07-2011 01:05 PM

No power steering?
No power brakes?

But it DOES have 2/55 air conditioning, and he didn't even list it!

here is a pretty funny one I came across today on ebay...

Jeep CJ CJ5

Fiberglass Tub Hood and Fenders: Over $6000 with all hardware
Custom aftermarket heater: $1000
Cragar rims and huge tires: $1500
Besttop top brand new: $800
Bikini Top: $50
Besttop new Doors: $350
Custom Roll Cage: $1200
Besttop custom seats. new condition $450
Much More
Total Value in parts alone:11350


I think it's pretty funny when the seller can't even list what his actual tire size is and just sais HUGE. All his prices for upgrades are pushing the limits of the high side. His custom roll cage that cost him $1200... man he really got ripped off on that one. :laugh:

Yep. Anyone who has followed CJs, or probably any old vehicle with a following, knows that you rarely get out of them what you put into them. Ads like that always tell me that the seller has no understanding of the market.
