So... When its time to sell your 59 Wagon??
Permalink  
 


It has reached the point where it may be time for me to sell the 1959 Nomad after ~14 years and a lot of fun.

Would like to sell it "lock, stock and barrel", including spares, a V-6 set up, and some super rare screens for camping.

Suppose it depends on the buyer, but have any of you been successful in such a full divesture? 

Also the price guides are all over the place, better to set a firm price, or best offer by, or start high and play the game?

Looking forward to any insights from your experiences.

Thanks 

If you or someone you know is interested Please PM me.

The long roof market is really hot right now and I would sell it with everything, except the V6. You could mention it could be had for X amount more, but people may not want it and pass on the purchase if it is a non-negotiable part of the package.
You have done a great job of restoration and repair and the car is in great condition and people just LOVE the satin paint now too. I would think you could get top dollar at BTTF.

Probably a mixed feeling about selling it, but if that is what you decided was best, congrats on the sale.

 Thinking of a 64 or older survivor with a V8? or maybe something else. We will see, was not expecting it to sell so fast.

The new guy is 39 and all excited to do the things would have been done if kept.

"Worst case", wait until spring to buy and park my daily driver in the garage this winter

For sure, but driving home from Henderson last Tuesday on 169 decided it was time.

Lots of options for a next car, hope to take time to get the right one. 

Not sure a major build is in the plans, perhaps a car that I will be the next "caretaker"?

Two spaces, one large, one small.

Need running driving project or switching Crafting, Quilting?

headscratch

 

Your Bride might take exception to you hanging out at Michaels and joining a Quilting Club,

Maybe Basket weaving?

cenunivstirpot

 

Find project soon or you will be doing a complete home remodel.

I wish I had known you were selling the bike, I'm being peer-pressured into getting in on the mini-bike mania.

There will be no Quilting and sorry there weren't more Honda's to sell, like the Nomad it went quickly, which is what I was hoping for.

I was watching a custom car show, and the camera panned over a red '60 Nomad.

 There are a few out there, hope to find something else that is somewhat unique, but only time will tell. 

Maybe it would be best to wait for spring to buy something, sort of like getting free winter storage.
