Eliminators on the Market (December 2020)

Hope you are getting your projects underway as we slide inevitably towards 2021.

BEWARE OF SCAM LISTINGS OF ELIMINATORS FOR SALE!
Scammers are using pictures from legitimate listings (old and current) and passing them off as their car that is for sale, at prices well below market value. Always verify the car is real and the VIN is legitimate by checking with the CCOA or Eliminator Registry.
Also be sure to order your own Marti Report. Scammers have been doctoring Marti’s and changing VINs. Marti will not charge you for an invalid VIN.
Never send a deposit without confirming there is actually a real Eliminator associated with the listing.
And as always, remember that if it is too good to be true then it is probably a scam.

The one in Texas looks nice for a yellow Eliminator.

That car has been for sale forever. I think it looks really nice but with only 6 old pics, it’s hard to say for sure.

It was $45k or so last time it was listed a few years ago by the previous owner. I believe the current owner had it repainted, and also painted the underside. Interior is still tired and could use a freshening up, but I don’t think he wants to put any more money into it.

If you need more pics just message the seller. He’ll send them.

Car has great documentation too, and is a pretty rare color combination.

*Do your due diligence on this one. Previous owner referred to the car as having been “rebodied” / “front clip swapped”, as well as being painted “an '80’s Ford Probe yellow”.
