Tried listing some stuff here but got very little or no response so very reluctantly listed on eBay.
I despise pay-pal so might get my listings closed for not kissing up to them.
Have a look while you can, fairly low "Buy it Now" for each item, I think.

Airbox, auction # 151596695355
Sport Sedan grill, auction # 151596714969
Spider LS rear, auction # 151596746941
2000 SPICA cam cover, partly polished, auction # 151596754368
Transmission, auction # 151596764712
2L Crankshaft, auction # 151596781121
2000 Short block core, auction # 151596799857

Will have some '74 Spider stuff to add soon.
Have a complete '74 Spider engine that runs well with the SPICA injection.
Currently up for offer$.

Richard, [email protected] or PM.

I'm in No. Nevada near Carson City, Reno, Lake Tahoe.
Interesting that all my items had at least five "Views" as soon as I entered them.
Sniping programs?

eBay has turned long ago into a chinese-Bay cheap stuff listings and is no longer the kind of site it used to be for rare alfa parts. People are extremely reluctant to enter and look for stuff there, nevertheless pay for them so no surprise there (talking from experience).

Wish you luck anyway, maybe keep the parts they might be worth more in 10 or so years.

Everyone's experience is different. I just sold a couple Alfa things on ebay for good money, and some car books and old plastic models for insane money. Good full description, honestly presented, with good pictures and well worded title can achieve results.

Just added some rear script.
I think in future I may do shorter auctions.

Will have more as I decide what is actually spares to keep and what is really surplus to my projected needs.

Fee-Bay = FAIL.

Clean short block assembly went for a measly $100.00, only one bid.

Could not get $100.00 opening bid for a trans.
Despite "No international shipping" most inquiries on the LS rear were from Europe.
Did not sell with a $100.00 opening bid.
No bid on my Weber type air-box at $100.00 to start, despite much poorer examples trying to get $250.00 - $500.00!

Will not be re-listing, too much work for no bids.
