The following is a classic example of how not to sell a Checker. This Checker has been for sale for about 8 weeks. Good Checkers priced fairly are flying off the market quickly. The current ad reads as follows:
“Selling my 1969 checker 4 Dr it has a 350 v8 and torbo 400 transmission 5 new Hancock tires it does have some rust in the floor board and trunk but it’s all easy to fix I’m selling to pay bills. 918-616-1605.”
It’s unfortunate that this individual has to sell a Checker to pay bills, and this writer feels empathy for anyone in this position, but if this car is seriously for sale a number of issues have to be addressed.
- Price, way too high at $7K given the condition, there are Checkers on the market in better condition for half the price.
- Condition, rust noted …..but considered easy to repair. Well, if it’s so easy to repair, why has it not been done?
- Photos, poor quality and not enough to truly display the Checker’s condition. Additionally the photo are all taken from about 30 feet away, a telltale sign that the car has issues.
- For $7500 price tag, the car should be clean and free of all dirt and clutter. A little elbow grease goes a long way
Good luck sellers, buyers beware.
