I'm sure very few people would be inclined to procure a sale with you given the history anyway.. So a moot point.. I know it seems like days gone by but a mans word is his bond.... If you say its a deal..it's a deal... Unfortunately many people think it's too easy to just say..screw it, I've changed my mind.. I think the big factor is that there was a lack of personal communication that you decided not to conclude the sale agreement.. You weren't too busy to talk to him when you took his deposit.. You should have made the effort to call him when you decided to return it...

The original post listed $9000 for the sales price. Thinking all here who saw those two pics and that price called to purchase this SIIa sight unseen. Now that it has sold, and assuming the overall condition was as presented in those two pictures, just what was this SIIa worth? $20-23k?

Next question - why did the Mods edit the initial post by removing the asking price over 19 hours later?

He prob asked them too. Seemed like a nice enough bloke when I spoke to him. Dunno what it sold for or what the issue was. Just know I could've sold it on for a nice little profit. But then got caught up buying and selling other "stuff"

He quoted his own text and put the asking price in at that point.

I saw that. Nobody knows the story except for the OP so no reason for folks to bash him. Perhaps a family member stepped in telling gramps of its correct valuation and not give away the farm. Jonesy is saying $15k.... because he would snatch it up and flip for north of $20k!

I spoke with George and he seemed very up front with me that he wanted it to go to someone local and to someone who would enjoy it. He didn't want it to go to a Jonesy who would just flip it, and even said that. He said his phone had been ringing non-stop with calls from all over the country and offers to wire him a deposit sight unseen but that that was not the type of transaction that he was looking for, and that he was hoping to deal face-to-face...again, with someone local. The additional pics he sent weren't quite as polished as the 2 he posted here, but the truck still appeared solid although not a full galvanized frame as I'd (and probably many others) originally anticipated. The current pics of the truck basically looked like someone who got too busy to drive it, but who had gathered up many of the parts to start putting together a restoration, and he said many times those were his intentions.

I am pretty sure the pictures from the post on this forum did not represent the actual condition of this truck. The seller sent me pics which he stated were one day old. The truck was not beat, and it may have been the same truck, but I bet the pics on the post were 10 years old. While nice, the actual truck was misrepresented to this community by the photos in the post. The seller also sent me an email stating to the effect he was returning the initial deposit he received, but still might sell the truck.... which was really weird. He told me via phone to the effect ....if you tell me you want the truck, it is yours and I will hold it for you. Your word is good enough....

I was going to drive four hours, one way, to see this truck, and I am glad I did not waste the time, as this returned deposit bullshit is FLAKEY!

NO...they were actual pics of the truck - it was in great condition - there were a few cosmetic things not right, and yes only the Xmember was galvied. I was not saying it was a $20K truck, and I would not have paid $15K...but lost interest in it after speaking with the guy when I found out it was not on a full galvy frame. And never called or emailed him back. I am glad he sold it to someone who would not flip it.....

Plus I pulled the trigger on a D110 so focused on that.

Additional pics. He said there was no longer a top for it but that he had a ton of extra parts as part of the sale.

Several calls and emails with no response. So tonight I get a paypal refund with a message "sorry I decided to hold on to the truck". I can understand sellers remorse because I've had it myself but when I make a deal I go through with a deal (A MAN IS ONLY AS GOOD AS HIS WORD) hey it's his truck and it's his decision not to sale but MAN UP and call the buyer and explain??? Just sending a deposit back just don't sit right with me.
BODIE, Check Rovers North's for sale section. There is a great IIa pickup for sale in Western Mass. Full Galvy Chasis and Bulkhead. Very nice IIa with Patina.

Looks like this is your first post -- welcome to the madness!

Maybe pics of actual truck, but when were they taken? Check out Josh's post.... While still nice, it was misrepresented.

Great news on the 110!
