Anyone ever done one? I got a pickup that I need cleared out so I can park a new trailer. Not gonna get anywhere near what I have into it so I was thinking just throw it up on ebay and see what happens. Just wondering if this could turn out worse than parting it out.

If you want it gone, that's the way to go. If you part it out, you might spend months listing and re-listing bits and pieces, and still have the bulk of it hogging up space.

I'd be a little leery of a no reserve auction.  Just set the reserve price where you're willing to part with it.  You can always re-list it as a no-reserve next time.

Craigslist............
Link Posted: 11/19/2011 7:30:25 PM EDT
I put up a functional yet unwanted truck up on craigslist in exchange for a case of Blanton's bourbon.  Beat the hell out of having to pay to have it listed.

I know a lot of charities take used vehicles as a form of donation, perhaps you could donate it and write it off? I have no idear how any of that works.

If you do go with Ebay...check the fees carefully (including listing and final Value fees)...if it doesn't sell for much, you may wind up paying ebay more than you get.

I just don't really think it should be scrapped hell it has a brand new paint job, over $3k in work/parts, 2 owner truck. Its just to get it where I want it I have to spend more money and time and both of which I don't have and don't forsee having.

I guess I could always pull all the new parts off it, and the rare stuff and then sell it that way.

Out of sheer curiosity....what kind of truck are we talking about?

1984 Ford F250hd. 460 v8, 4speed bw t19, bw 1345 tcase. Super Cab.

Original owner was a ford employee who purchased it from a ford lot in Glendale, AZ. Got all the factory/dealer paper work, warranty sheet, original salesman card, build sheet, original registration sticker, window plates, on and on.

Its no longer as it came from the factory but its still rare. It got the highest score on auto check found on ebay. Saw a truck with less of a score (more original however, with less paperwork) go for $8k and the dude turned down the bid.

I'd second the 'put it on Craigslist' option. F* Fleabay....

I put my old Toyota on Craigslist. It ran, and was in pretty good shape for the age, but was going to need some
exhaust work to pass inspection, and I was paying for insurance, but just wasn't using it, so I just put "$500 -
runs good but needs some exhaust work." Was up for a week w/o a nibble, except for one e-mail that basically
said, "What's really wrong with it?"

Okay, f* it. Changed the listing to jack the price up to $1200, no other changes, and sold it one day later.

People.....

I've jacked price up and down, lengthened description, added and removed pics etc. I've got people offering my $500 bucks and its daily driver material. I had a flatbed on it that I paid $3k for on ebay. The final auction price was $1700 bucks including flatbed. No where near my reserve and something that if I was offered in real life I would probably slap someone for such a stupid offer.

Its been on cl since August, maybe I just don't have the touch for online selling. I do a kick ass job of trading usually and thus far haven't got any deals/.

Lol I remember that thread bud. I'm sure sorry about that. I try to make every small detail clear in my auctions/listings, they are damn long but I disclose everything.
