They call him Flipper, Flipper...

My friend sold this van for $2100 a few weeks ago. That's probably about what it is worth.

Lowering the price from $16000 to $2100? Some buyers are better at negotiating than others I guess.

Sorry but, a DeLuxe Greenbrier that looks decent and runs/drives well is worth plenty more than $2100 unless it is a total rust brick.

Why do you say its not worth much?
If a friendly dolphin buys it and offers it for more, the market should either reward or penalize that effort depending on what the buyers want.

The price of Corvair FC models is headed UP recently

Not sure what they mean when they say it has Air? Of course it has probably a couple hundred cubic feat of air on the insidespinning smiley sticking its tongue out

If your friend thought it was worth $2,100 and got paid,nothing else matters.
Maybe your friend bought it for less? Should the guy that sold it to him be upset because your buddy sold it for more?

Actually, my friend was only asking $1600 but 2 buyers showed up at the same time and got into a bidding war. He ended up getting $2100. The van is not nearly as nice as the pics may indicate. It runs ok but is pretty rusty underneath. The driver's side body panel (where the doors would be if it were an 8-door) is pretty much separated from the rest of the body. The metal around the lower hinge on the rearmost double door is nonexistent. I think it still has the original metal brake lines and hoses, the wiring for the alternator conversion is a rat's nest, the upholstery is intact but brittle (notice the Armor-All gleaming in the photos.) Good knock-around car (he was using it to haul yard waste with the second seat removed) but it needs LOTS of work to be what I would consider to be safe and reliable. I hope the new owner does get $16K for it. That would mean that my Loadside should be worth about $75,000.

Given the shipping and what I found under the paint on mine (dents not rot), this was a truly good deal. I'd have much preferred starting w/ this one. So it seems it was really worth much more than $2100 but $16K is just crazy talk......

I seem to remember Bob Marlow sold his super super nice and original (1 owner?) 64 Greenbrier a few years ago for $16 or $17k and I don't recall that it needed anything. So how much work did the one sold for $2100 need? Full resto?

Funny mine was in a flop of a movie called accidental love from 2007. Jessica Biel sat in it so that's its saving grace! I'm leaving from San Gabriel valley on Saturday. Where are you leaving from corventure Dave? Maybe we can drag race!
