I buy and sell stuff on eBay all of the time. You can't let one bad apple spoil the bunch.

Well the listing continues; 42 bids so far and we are up to $53,100 with only a bit over 6 hours left to go in this 'scam' auction.

I had a friend contact me today about a great deal on this "nice gold Montreal". Certainly the vast number of 'scam' listings hurts the eBay auction market. Likewise the number of 'fake buyers' must hurt as well. eBay's inaction is probably driving legitimate buyers and sellers to use 'Bring a Trailer' and other online auction sites.

I called Ebay to say this is my car. I even sent them the Pink Slip and the listing is still up.

I know how you feel. I reported your car to eBay as well.

Resisting the urge to click the link telling eBay that the "seller" offered to sell me the car outside of eBay, for less to avoid selling fees and relisting fees:-) -Probably get myself in trouble with them...

was on ebay in july last (79k$) where it got 3 offers.
also listed on Hemmings

always the same seller (Mayor Cars, FL - you can see the company logo in the background in the listings), who seem to be car storeage people.

....maybe just left in storeage from a CA owner and now put up for sale?

I am sure I know this car from this forum from years ago... the red airbox is so unique.

I think it was also on autoscout.24, because the house in background is also in my memories.

the kilometer look correct, the car has patina what is after 44 years normal.

I guess the seller shop has to work on the price that he will sell the car finaly, when it is so long on his offer-list ?

Here is definitiv nomore Monti weather...

I am sure that if you inquire at the Number shown, they will probably have some. A lot of dealers do not show under-body pictures unless you ask specifically. It is strange that this car did not show up in Montreal, Canada for this year's Expo.

This looks just like a car that was at the Atlanta Italian Car Day about four years ago (sort of a flat silver paint job and yellow headlights). I believe the one I saw at the ICD had been imported from France by a buddy (Bruce Cusmano). I have a very similar gearshift knob listed on eBay -it has a silver Alfa logo, that contrasts with the gold horn button logo.

Happy New Year!

Mark

My car is very new underneath, but it also has 45 years of road dirt! Patina! The car shows it age, but it's slightly gray. Just gonna drive her.
NO RUST! Believe me I was underneath, and what a clean car. I'm removing Nuts and Bolts that were put on the car the day it was assembled!
Clutch worn. Winter project.
Looks like this car is untouched by bad mechanics.
Even the front drivers seat has the same ripples as mine.
Floor mats are ugly? Wrong shift knob and radio. has side view mirrors(I don't care what's behind me! I'm an Italian driver). I'd ask this much for this one, but it's not as original as mine, except the STUPID side markers the DOT require to put on when the car was inported. I got no side view mirrors didn't come with the car, don't need them.
Hellanore(did I spell that right?) can you get the yellow head lights in Germany?
Love to get them for a couple of cars. Please PM me if you have a source. Glass ones.

Try Canada for the Yellow Headlights. Quebec Province is mainly French speaking and I have seen a lot of cars in Montreal and Quebec with Yellow lights. They are standard 5 3/4" Round type. Believe you can get them with Halogen globes. Good Luck!! If you get the Yellow Headlights you should also get the Amber Turn Signal Indicator Lenses. That is the European style.
