Your Humble Opinion is absolutely shared by me. Ebay is sometimes good for parts, definately not for cars (Ebay India that is)
the jeep was never pulled off the guy just extended the time again. but anyways his price of 5lacs would not be matched at all and i doubt there would be people bidding above a certain amount.
as per my experience dealing with bidding sites is that no matter how much you bid the price is always beaten by another till the desired amount of the product has been left behind. the other bidder turns out to be either someone known to the owner or the owner itself bidding with another id.
i never bid on this sites any more rather pay more and go have a look then bid and play blind.

This car looks quiet good in condition.

Why would anyone want to scrap it ?

Precisely the same thought I had.......
Thats why I've posted it here in case anyone wants to salvage it. One of our tbhpians did consider it & wants to take a look at it though...'have decided to go there tomorrow evening as I'm not feeling too well today.

We did manage to take most of what we wanted yesterday & today though...so atleast it served the other purpose as a parts donor....
Incidentally, the pattis on the front wings, I later realised, were herald ones- the longest ones that come on the rear wings- cut to fit this car!

He said he's getting another old fiat soon though......le' see.....

Here's a 1964 mk1 Herald up for sale at B'lore, owned by a friend....this is one of 2 Heralds he owns (the other one being a 67 mk2) plus a Gazel.....he's likely to move abroad shortly so has asked me to help him with selling any of his cars....he bought the car a couple of years ago (which was when these pics. were taken), was originally powder blue, exterior was thereafter done up, although could do with a better job....bonnet was slightly misaligned (as seen in the pics.) which had also been rectified eventually....is quite original although unfortunately he had kept it parked outside a restoration garage & hadnt been to check on it too often so some of the interior parts viz. the sunvisors, inner door handles & the headlights have recently been stolen off the car!
He's asking quite a decent price for it......anyone interested please pm me & I'll forward you my friend's contact no......
Note: Pics. uploaded with his permission hence not blanking out the plates.

Here is an early ('65) delight for sale at the scrapyard.....happens tio be a 1-owner car, quite original but needs some tinwork mainly on the flooring...papers clear/valid upto 2008...incidentally this car seems to've originally been the same colour as my delight- pink!
He's asking 25k but will come down to 21-22......said he's gonna hang onto it only for today, following which he's going to scrap it!

I must say the line looks very clean. This car can come up to a very good standard. Wish I had some loose change to spare!

Hmm.......and going by the overwhelming response I've had to this today I think I have a pretty good idea who that someone is.....!

As you said, it indeed is a very decent car & would hate to know its going to the hackers!
