OldArmy, thanks for posting. Yeah, I guess it's not all that rare. However this car has been maintained by my grandfather the same, IF NOT BETTER, than any 6.3 you've seen. The car is in San Antonio. (which I said in this page.) and yes I did put it on craigslist in dallas because I needed to sell it fast and thought I might find a buyer there. I'm very close to selling it now. for a car that's "not rare", I sure have seen a lot of interest.
But yeah, thanks again for your input.

I am not picking on your car, but the Craigslist ad said the car was *IN* Dallas. It should have said San Antonio. I set a message to that ad and got no reply. I was asking about the mileage on the car, etc. The way you answered some of the honest questions here was squirrely too. It makes one wonder....

rwa, thank you.

oldarmy, i dont take anything you said personally. You can pick on the car all you want. I only get defensive because I know how much this car has been cared for by people very important in my life. (who arent here anymore.) Anyone has the right to ask any question theyd like and im doing my best to answer them as im not an authority on cars. i apologize if my lack of knowledge seems "squirrelly". It was listed as in Dallas because I have family there and was thinking of having the car moved there. I can see why that might be confusing.

Im in the process of having a professional document the car with a ton of photos and upload all of the maintanence records for the lifetime of the car and the complete parts listing.

Im not trying to be rude, squirrelly, or anything else. Im just trying to sell something thats been important to my family for a long time. Its bad enough that I have to do that, so I just want to make sure I atleast get a fair price. Thats all.

PS When I say Im very close to selling it, I mean that I have several reasonable offers on the table that I am entertaining. It hasnt been sold yet, but hopefully will be soon.

Everyone wants to get as much as posible for a car they are selling. The issue is that you are using this for sale forum as an auction. This is not the purpose of this site. If you read the sticky post entitled READ THIS BEFORE POSTING! (Section posting rules) you would understand that. If you want to auction the car then list it on ebay.

This car will be sold within the next 3 weeks. I have sent the Announcement of Sale brochure to over 200 individuals and have begun the process of answering questions and taking offers.

No tricks. No gimmicks.

If you're interested in being involved in the process, I'd be more than happy to send you the document to your email. The rest is up to you. Bottom line.

Thank you for your time.

All the best.
