a) amazing how many cars pop up on the 'bay as being "sold for a good friend" and b) for a car of that value and provenance, if it is pukka, why not sell through a specialist dealer and avoid the tyre kickers and chancers? Dont know

"sold for a good friend" = WALK


also, that's far far too expensive for a LHD and a car that isn't being sold through a proper RS specialist like GTClassics, Malton etc..

I don't know why you would assume an ad like this must be dodgy in some way?

Selling a £90,000 car is the same as selling a £9000 one is it not? Where do you draw the line? a £30,000 car is ok to sell privately but a £31,000 isn't?

People ring or email if they are interested.
They come view the car.
They pay for it in cash and leave with it then and there, or they give you a cheque and then come back to collect when it has cleared.

A friend was recently looking at a Ferrari Dino for sale privately of similar value to this and the bloke selling it was happy to take a cheque and let my friend know when it cleared so he could collect.

Why involve a middle man? I would quite happily sell a car like that privately, no problem at all.

As for the 'selling on behalf of a friend', I don't see that as an issue either. A lot of people want to advertise stuff for sale but hate computers.

I recently sold quite a rare and valuable Mitsubishi Evo 6 Extreme 'on behalf of a friend'.

Aforementioned friend is only the same age as me but hates using computers, websites and email, so he got me to create a couple of adverts for his car, take the pictures and answer the emails about it. He only got involved once someone was literally on their way to view it, and he would meet them. Thumb

Car got sold, job done! Smile

As for the value of this particular one, I can't comment as I don't know much about RS values, but it looks a nice one, albeit left hand drive which sometimes puts people off.

I agree, I've sold a couple of cars for friends, including my father who does not have an email address, nothing wrong with helping a friend is there? Question
