Just added a few more pics.
Thought there would be more interest
Picked a bad week to list it, I guess.....
Great car. I sold my 67 to a out of the country buyer in a listing I put on this site
I think starting price of 12K is reasonable.....but what do I know....I'm a racer....
Man....not sure if I'll ever sell a car on EBAY again.
Lots of hate mail....such as saying interior is not "totally mint" because of steering wheel crack. They all seem to do that and it's 53 yrs old!
No bids....what am I doing wrong?
Starting at your bottom line is a mistake. Better to have a buddy bid your minimum at the last minute.
Nice Riviera! Agree with others not the best time of year to be a seller.
We forget not everyone lives in the same climate, this is car show season in the south so those buyers have no reason to wait to buy. That said, holiday season people’s money is tied up, be patient and resist after Christmas.
I'm guessing the time of the year is holding back a few sales. Your Riviera, Jason's car, Kooch's car. Keep at it, a buyer that must have it will come along.
1800 views and 53 watchers had me optimistic
Most are probably forum members LOL
I would try again after the holidays when people are tired of winter and looking to get back into hobby . Good cars sell themselves and I'm guessing there is a buyer waiting for a nice ride like yours!
2nd-generation Rivieras generally don't get much love from the: "investor," class of auto enthusiasts....just my observation. From a fit-form-function and practicality standpoint, they're my #1 & would I drive mine every day if I could.
We're about 5 years into a generational change where normal people can't own *any* vehicles, let alone a classic car. The model USA home of today is a 1-2 bedroom flat with no parking, no private yards or entryway, where you take public transit or lyft/uber-boober rides to your job or other social functions & nobody even has any concept of vehicles or how to drive. Only the super-rich have vehicles, which they drive on their private lands, or they have chauffeurs to drive them all over.
I was one of the watchers and thought you had a really good chance since it was priced reasonably and no reserve. Next time you might try posting a link to the sale on the BCA and ROA forums. BTW, I'm in Cambridge almost every weekend and then some, and don't recall seeing your car---does it get out much?
Not much....went to Ocean City cruise in the fall....otherwise just exercise it a few times a year. It has a few project cars blocked in that need attention.
Any watchers interested? Otherwise I will try again in the late spring 2020.
You will want to get it on before late spring, people start looking after the holidays so they have a few months to work on them before the cruise season begins. Def want it on by at least the end of March.
