Buy it, sell it, negotiate, haggle, drag it out from under the workbench or behind the garage and make it someone else's problem!

82 Maxi wagon on Ebay

#1

Post by glenlloyd » 14 years ago

It doesn't look too bad and the miles are pretty low, but it hasn't been cleaned up much.

I asked the seller when the TB had been changed and he said he didn't know for sure, so either he wasn't the owner or if he was he never replaced it.

It'll be interesting to see what it brings

I don't know, I may be jaded, but that just doesn't look like even a $900 wagon to me. Both my wagons have less door rust than that, those may be minor dents but they're noticeable across a parking lot, that driver's seat bottom is trashed, the overall interiour looks dirty (as does my '82's). The mileage is low though (if it's correct). Tires look poor. Lots of corrosion under the hood.

If it runs and drives well, perhaps a motivated buyer would give that much for it. Yes, it'll be interesting to see what it fetches. Though it's only a three-day auction, and ends Feb-06-06 18:00:12 PST (tomorrow) and has zero bids.

I know, but did you see how many had already looked at the auction? It was like at 850 when I found it!

Either that thing had a battery xplode in there or it came from the salt belt not all that long ago. Which reminds me, I did see a post somewhere not that long ago for a blue wagon for sale, down south, for $500 or offer I think...

BTW, someone has bid on it.

Yeah, $1225 is probably about right. Balance the low miles with the rust/dents/grubby. It's a driver.

There wasn't any fight at the end either, I happened to be watching.

Another oddity, that may support the fact that it had recently been purchased closer to or in the rust belt, the miles on the odometer in the picture were at 137947 but the seller listed it in the desciption as 137125, which could be an minor error on his part, or it could indicate a 800 mile trip post-purchase. He may have used the mileage stated on the title at transfer in the listing without thinking about it.

It is not a Texas car, it can't be, not with that kind of rust, I just don't believe it's possible.

That's why a CarFax report can be so valuable. Certainly, I'd never spend that kind of money without shelling out the $20.
