eBay 1927 Star R

Presently on eBay a 4 door Star R for $2000 351722187529 1928 Other Makes MODEL R 4 DOOR STAR CAR DURANT.

I have informed him its a 1927 model year Star R but can't quite make out the full vin on the plate/.

He has just come back saying THANK YOU FOR THE INFO. IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO REALLY WANTS THIS, I WILL DISCOUNT HEAVILY FOR A QUICK SALE.

Might be a chance to get a fairly complete car at a good cost, depending on what the heavy discount is.

Re: eBay 1927 Star R

I've been watching that one and if it were closer to Texas I would offer 400-600 bucks. This is more a parts pile than a reasonable restoration. It can certainly be done but it would be expensive. You would also need an enclosed trailer to haul to keep parts from flying off en route home.

I can get this if someone really wants it. It's about 2 hours away, but I can't store it very long. Keep it from the crusher. Ross

Re: eBay 1927 Star R

Ross, this is a highly commendable offer you're making and I hope someone can take advantage of it. This old hulk still has a lot of good parts that, sooner or later, someone will have use for. These are the type of cars I look for in order to preserve the spare parts more so than a project. If anybody knows of one closer to Texas I would appreciste a heads up.

Ebay shows this as sold. Don, did you secretly buy it?

No, I didn't get that one. I'm curious who bought it, though.

It did get relisted for $1500 instead of $2000 but yes its vanished. Hope it didn't go for scrap. Not seeing any feedback if it was sold.

You could ask him what he did with it on eBay or just put wally cooper gunsmith supplies in search for lots of hits.
