I'm keeping an eye on this one. I'm already surprised at the price since it is a standard cab and not an SR5.
I'm seriously considering listing a car on BaT, has anyone here sold one? They have a form to fill out online but details of the process seems a little hazy. Do they write the ads based on the info you give them? When do they decide to accept the listing and make it active? Who decides the reserve price?
I sold my 240Z there, it was a good experience.
They put together the ad from info you provide. The more detail you can give the better.
You also provide the photos. Good photos make a difference. You also want to show any known trouble spots for the make/model you are selling.
Buyers will know what they are. If you don't have photos they will assume the worst.
I had a couple videos as well. They buyer said that is what gave them the confidence to buy the car sight unseen.
Cold start, hot start and a few minutes driving.
It is a great venue but fickle. If commenters/bidders are put off by something about the car or seller things to down hill in a hurry.

I thought it was rather odd, but hey, his house his rules. No hard feelings. Sold on eBay for higher than that reserve.
Another E9 listed also by a dealer fell under reserve at $25k recently. http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1970-bmw-2800-cs/
Might be they'll let dealers maintain a higher reserve.

Magically the rust that went through the rear windshield frame and into the trunk was fixed in no time flat and the dealer had the same car listed for over $40k. That thing had a ton more body work than mine ever did, and even though the title was clean, the E9 community beat that car pretty damn hard for the amount of work it needed and what was completed in what seemed like an episode of Overhaulin. People on BaT aren't stupid, so a car like that wont meet reserve, but a car like mine with a light bit of body work and a story would have.
I could neener neener I was right with my reserve since I got the money I wanted, but I thought it was a little odd that I had to negotiate that off the bat like that.

These are cool, I've seen them 1 in person but man is it tight up front for space.
Good example of a listing (see the comments) where there are very knowledgeable buyers asking questions and the seller NEEDS to be active in monitoring, and answering.

Def. watching this one..maybe the one of the last clean 1st Gen's around. I'd love to have it in my stable next to my 5th gen. I imagine though day to day driving would suck with so little power. These kinda cars definitely appeal to the kid in me remembering these new, but compared to modern cars I think the day to day drive would be a total letdown.
I pretty much daily my 1985 pickup. It is nowhere near powerful but it isn't too bad.
(If you diy it won't be all that bad...)
