Not mine. The build quality is suspect. Looks like a Costa Rican spray-and-pray.

What do you think this will go for?

Thank you for the heads up on this

Tons of S.American flips happening and buyers have no clue ….

LC world is now like MINI and Defender world :(

I couldn't resist. I had to comment on the auction. The truck is so hacked up, I don't want anyone to buy a lemon.


BAT sucks, I have attempted to list a truck or two on there, full disclosure. They wanted to set the starting bid with no reserve well under my "all-in" $$ (1/3 what I had in it $$$ wise) in particular on a 1984 HJ47 in LHD. When I say "full disclosure" I mean dozens of pics of the Cruiser on thee lift showing all issues and every single component covered. They would rather list hack jobs. I sold that one on CL for what I had in it, in under a week.


Cheers

I’ve been following the comments on this one since the beginning of the auction. Saw the now-deleted post from @Will Van when it first went up and thought to myself “thank god someone here knows what he’s looking at and actually took the time to point out concerns”. When I went back later, I thought there’d been a mistake when not only that post but also a post from @OGBeno had been taken down. I get that BaT has a financial interest in increasing purchase price, but they also make so much of the expert community to help educate potential buyers. I enjoy following along with the auctions for some of the more unique trucks and even bought my last cruiser on BaT a few months ago, but this one has really put a bad taste in my mouth. @Will Van and @OGBeno, I don’t think either of you did it for attention, but good on both of you for calling a spade a spade.

I sold my 1983 Hilux on BaT and was satisfied with the transaction.

And I have seen good prices for quality vehicles on BaT. But they’re a business and they make more money with higher auction prices. Unfortunately, consumers aren’t very savvy and see shiny paint and assume it’s a good vehicle.

Why does the steering stabilizer have a spring on it? That makes my head hurt.

I noticed only Beno’s comment is flagged now. Your original comment got put back up. In my mind that’s a result of the Mud revolt that BaT hand on its doorstep 😂
