Does anyone on this forum subscribe to "Corvairs for Sale" (corvairs@trunkhill.com) List?

I have been a subscriber for years and keep seeing ONE Corvair that keeps showing up - always the same picture and description! The PRICE varies, but will eventually 'go back' to $500!! eye popping smiley

This makes me wonder if ANY of the other listings are real!? drinking smiley

Any one else notice this???

Oh Well, It gives me something to read and delete each day! smoking smiley

Facebook Marketplace is FULL of scam ads for vehicles. Frequently the ads come with various names and Facebook accounts but all have the same geographic location. There seem to be no controls whatsoever, but then it's Facebook so what would you expect. Also a lot of people just fishing to see what their car might be worth with no intention to sell unless they hook a real sucker.

Generally speaking and being new to Corvairs, I've never seen a type of car vary so much in asking price relative to condition. Prices are just all over the place on the internet, FB and CL.

I'm on that mail list. What I think you're seeing is eBay listings that are actually 'auctions'. So, the price will show the latest "bid price"...not the actual "asking price'. I could be wrong, but I think that is what and why you are seeing it like that. If the car doesn't sell via the auction, they may list it again and that is why you 'keep seeing it'.....

So I'm not 100% but I'd say that page has not been updated in 10+ years. It might have a script that runs and fills out and send an email or population of Corvairs for sale. A few updates but very cool Corvair page.
