Sellers: Be Aware of Scams

Several members lising cars for sale have encountered disreputable buyers. We hope your selling experience is positive, but be careful. The National Consumers League Website has the following cautions:

>NEVER wire money or use a bank-to-bank transfer in a transaction.

>Avoid payment via international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency.

>DO NOT sell a car to someone who is unable or unwilling to meet you face to face.

>WAIT until a check (personal, cashier’s, certified, or otherwise) has cleared the bank to transfer title or the car itself. Funds being made available by a bank DOES NOT mean the check is not counterfeit. Clearing a check can take days or weeks depending on the financial institutions involved. Check with your bank about their particular processes for clearing checks.

>NEVER trust a buyer who says that the transaction is GUARANTEED by eBay, Craigslist, PayPal, or other online marketplace. These sites explicitly DO NOT guarantee that people using their services are legitimate.

>BEWARE of buyers who want to conclude a transaction as quickly as possible.

>CALL the buyer to establish phone contact. If the buyer seems to neglect details agreed to via e-mail or is unable to answer questions about their location, it is likely to be a scam.

>ALWAYS trust your gut. If a deal feels “fishy” or sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Other Scams include:

>A buyer will tell you that someone else owes him or her money that is more than the cost of your car. He or she will ask for the car and promise payment from the other individual.

>Buyer promises additional funds to pay for the cost to ship.

> Buyer sends payment that is over the asking price.

>Buyer makes a promise to make monthly payments

>The buyer will use an unknown escrow service to complete the transaction.

For Sale: PRICE CHANGED. 1919 Franklin Series 9B Touring
Decent, pretty complete, and mostly original car. Looks like it was repainted maybe once, not a very good paint job and now weathered and beat up. Top was also replaced in the past, and needs it again to be nice. Have side curtains and brackets. Aluminum body is in good condition, as is the wood framing. Most doors have taken a bit of a warp over the years. Tools are still in the doors. Fenders are somewhat beat up, but restorable. Have a nice spare set of front fenders. Car runs and drives. Engine top end was redone some years ago with new valves, hardened seats, and new oversize pistons. Has Buffalo wire wheels, but tires should be replaced. Wood frame is in good shape. Most of the seat upholstery has been replaced (somewhat poorly), but the rear seat backrest is original. Door panels appear to be original, but are worn.

Looking for a new home for it. $15K or best offer. Rob or Laurie at: 505-672-3483.

1929 Franklin model 130 4 door sedan.

Brakes: Four new wheel cylinders, and master is in good shape. All lines have been cleaned and system has new fluid. The brakes work well.

Interior: New in 1969 and still in very good shape. Speedometer does not work. Other guages work. All the lights work, including interior. Turn signals have been added. Clock has been rebuilt.

For Sale: 1929 Franklin Model 130, 4 door sedan

Purchased and put into storage in 1972. 47,967 on odometer. Transported to Florida in 2016 to begin restoration. Performed basic survey of vehicle condition and began re-build of engine, then unable to continue due to health. Vehicle is solid and complete.

Discovered in 1980's that the storage garage was leaking water on front of vehicle, and it was transported to another storage location. Water caused damage to engine hood and fan housing, but both are repairable. Engine appears to be in good condition, but valve lifters need freed from valve lifter tubes. Carburetor (old pot metal) probably should be replaced. $5,500.00
