No Marti mentioned.

The scoop area shouldn't be cut all the way through should it? I thought just a bolt held it on.
Hard to say why it's like that due to the extent of the rust on this one.

The ad says that the exterior color is brown. Could this be an elusive Pebble Beige car?

ETA: Nope, a "U" color code is Tahoe Turquoise.

I asked the seller if he had a Marti to confirm it's authentic.

He indicated he ordered one today and will post it later.

I verified it's a C/S (Marti). The car is close by (50 miles), and I sent a couple inquiries to the seller. It would be a complete re-do: body panels, doors, floor pans, interior, and the frame rails & torque boxes would have to be evaluated as well. I'm sorta interested, depending on the answers I get from the seller. (65A U 2A 15D 71 2 W) Automatic, P/S.

Thats a pretty sizeable jump...I thought an auction was supposed to move in small increments? Doesnt show the rescinded bid.

You're right about the increment expect it differs only for the cases when there is a reserve greater than the previous bid normal increments.

In those cases, if your bid is above the reserve, ebay increase your bid right away to that amount.

You can see the comment of the seller about the bid retract. I guess the bidder was just looking to see what was the reserve. Even though ebay has rules, there is no consequence to those who retract their bids, so some abuses it.

I would strongly consider buying this car if I had more time to have it stored...I won't be back in the states for another 2 months, and he will only let it sit for 45 days...that and i have no place to store it....oh well, good luck for whoever goes for it =)

Sunday night, 1-20. Bidding closes in 2Hrs. Now up to $2800. Too high for what I think its worth.
Koronen; you buy it, I'll store it for you. I'm 50 miles north of Toccoa.

Way to step up Neil! I was thinking I'd store it for him if I was closer. You're right though. I'd think it would be a better deal to grab Joe's for 6K than that one at 3K.
