Up for sale - parts added
« on: March 03, 2021, 09:12:28 AM »
Up for sale. Prefer to sell in Canada. Why you ask ? Because banks up here will not give the going rate of exchange & also charge a "fee" for doing so. They take a huge chunk of the money.
Also, it is easy for money to change hands up here.
Kit cost me $727.99 USD & $66.61 USD for the lines. (plus shipping & taxes to here)
Price is :  $600.00 (way over $200.00 savings for you) Plus shipping.
I have a Wilwood rotor/brake kit 140-1023-B with the optional braided (longer) brake line. I assembled & had mounted on my white car & decided to do something different. Never on the road.
Second are Headman Headers for 289/302 - NOT 351. I bought them from a guy that had tested them on his car. It ran in his shop & never on the road.
I have a pile of money tied up in them , with being shipped from the States, taxes , duty etc.
$400.00 Plus shipping (likely 1/2 what I have into them)
I am in Northern Alberta Canada

If anyone is looking for a go fast car , my white B2 car is for sale as well.
Shoot me a PM if interested & we can talk.
It is something a person would have to see in person.....

I was surprised to hear that you put your pony up in the corral! Did you find another Pinto project? I was hoping to meet you and to see your car at the Pinto Stampede!

Hope the next person loves Pintos as we do! 😀

Happy Motoring!

I have three. One on a rotisserie now.
Times been tough the last 1.5 years & need to pay bills.
One asshat on FB offered me 1/2 price on the headers......I told him I'd toss them on my scrap heap first....

Being in Northern Alberta Canada, the Stampede is way too far for me. Likely be a 10-15k + trip for me. Plus I'd have to trailer.
I am using Fury 108 (same as VP12) for fuel & get 6-8 mpg if I take it easy.

That's quite a hike from Northern part of Alberta! At least you have way much better scenery to drive your pony through than we do in suburban America with strip malls, sat food joints, and parking lots one after another! I love seeing the trees, lakes, and nature while driving my Pinto!

Maybe someday the Stampede can held in your neck of the woods!

Yeah, many people try to lowball others with their offers...so thank you for not caving in as it makes it harder for others to maintain their values. It's also important to be reasonable with the asking price along with having  some wiggle room as we all like a bargain or even trying to save our ponies with a limited budgets.

Happy Motoring!

I'm not much on haggling on prices.
If I want something & I think the price is fair, I pay it. If not, I just roll on by.
If I list something I always post a fair price.
Just the way I roll....

Yep!  Just like you.  It really cranks me if I have something for sale, list it at the lowest price I think I can live with, and then get "So what will you really be willing to take?"  I guess I got kind of touchy about this type of thing from back when I had a paint and body shop.  Someone would bring in a collision insurance claim for an estimate and I would figure out the very lowest price I thought I could do the job for, and I would quite often get the job.  Then a few days later an insurance adjuster would show up trying to chisel me down by a few hundred dollars.   This happened so often that I finally got to the point that I would tell them "I obviously got the low bid and you want to crop that to the point that I won't make anything at all.  Why don't you take it to the next higher estimate and see if you can chisel them down to the same thing I had.  They would then say " No, no, if you are that stubborn then we will go with your estimate."  "Nope, I would say, I gave you my price and you came around here with that crap, I won't do the job.  It wasn't long before when I had the low bid it wasn't questioned.  So, today years later, as soon as someone tries to lowball me, it still gets my back up.

Thanks for the other perspective... I never really had thought about it that way. I do pay the asking price if it is fair and reasonable, while at other times, if I see something with a astronomical pricing, I would try to inquire about how they came up with the asking price...it becomes clear that the seller has no idea what to ask for but afraid to sell it for less than its worth. I would attempt to negotiate using respect and not using insulting verbiage as it does no favors to me as a potential buyer and the seller as we are in need of one another. They need to sell and I need the item.

If they explain how they came up with the price, and the reasoning is valid, I wouldn't argue and pay the asking price...especi ally when it is an nonobtainable part.  That way everyone is happy. 

How would you advise that I do differently? I find the hobby to be made up with honorable people with good intents, and for those with ill intentions, I prefer not to do business with. Yet, people with good intents can be illogical or misinformed and I wish to be an ambassador of the good and take the opportunity to have a respectful dialogue to educate and possibly provide a win-win situation for both sides.

Thanks for the interesting dialogue...

Happy Motoring!

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.  I guess it boils down to the attitude.  You use the right approach to ask about the price. I hope I didn't give the impression that I was disagreeing with you.

Going to list a set of new (NOS) lower ball joints for 71/73 Pintos soon. Seen listed for as high as $195.00 USD. I will not list them so high though ? RARE ! Prefer a Canadian get them, as any a person can find is (mostly) in the US.
Canadian can E-Transfer money.
In the US you can do a Global Transfer for money.
They will, of course be plus shipping.
I'll post price as soon as I decide......

$200.00 for the set + shipping.
