Wow, what inflation. Only $7,500 a few weeks ago. Now they are $9,999. Of course, eBay will take a 10 percent final value fee for these. Plus Paypal fees.

The ebay seller is in Il.
The forum member selling tanks and winch and bow skirts is in IL.

Aren't these the same parts? Or is there two different sellers in IL selling the same tanks and parts?

I thought the same for a moment too, same seller. But no, the ebay listing has not been worked on. The one's that were $7500 had had quite a lot of work done to them and in my opinion, priced fairly. Ebay listing is :shock: , Whew!!!

Two different sellers. You guys can rip on the eBay seller all you want but they’re his parts and he can ask what he wants. Doesn’t mean he’s crazy. These are semi rare parts that you don’t see every day all in one sale. No reason to give them away. This is the very first time they were listed on eBay. If they don’t sell they will be coming down in price. Easier to go down that up in price. There was a buyer at $10,000 in Canada before all this virus stuff started and then the border closed down.
Also remember that at $10,000 eBay gets $1,000. A lot of times side deals are made which can be the asking price minus the eBay fees which would bring this down to $9,000 before any negotiations begin.

I don't think anyone is criticizing the seller for his asking price, it's a a free world, kind of. Just expressing surprise at it. If the prices are at that level, good for all who have them to sell. And, like the TV show Pawn Stars and Pickers, most of the items are just a method of showing the world what you have, not realy interested in that price. Then, the market will decide what the real price is and no one else will know as it is under the table.
I didn't know that IL was such a hotbed for tracked amphibious military vehicles that two different sellers would be selling identical parts. Notice that your location is Central US. Another hot spot for tracked vehicles? Notice you have quite a nice collection going.

The "first" seller here on the forum was asking $7,500 and says that the parts are no long available. Maybe the eBay seller purchased them and immediately listed them on eBay for a $2k profit. It's a free world . . . kind of.

I am the eBay seller. The person with the $7,500 tanks came to my house to look at my tanks but I had no idea he already had tanks that he was selling. It was my understanding when he came over that he didn’t have anything other than a weasel that needed tanks. I guess that was done on purpose. Now I see he’s been trying to sell reproduction tank parts.
I had a weasel that I bought all this stuff for but realized that it was going to take up way too much of my time to fix so I sold the weasel. I’d rather spend my time making the 400+ reproduction halftrack parts that I do.

Best of luck with them. I just purchased a small item off eBay and got charged sales tax and my understanding is that effective April 1, ebay is making sellers collect and charge sales tax. Don't know if eBay is collecting and paying the states or how that works, but another reason for someone to contact you off ebay to purchase these.
You might want to post a thread on the boats and amphibious vehicles board or even the new weasel only forum that is also referred to on that board.
Jesse, the guy who visited you, wanted measurements for tanks or side skirts and I had them but learned that was interested in making and selling these parts, so I never supplied them.
I hope my son doesn't see this post as he wants to turn our weasel into a floater and I don't have that kind of cash laying around. Plus it's the rudders, yokes, grab hook, etc

Yeah after he left here I got the impression he never intended on buying anything. Probably just wanted to see how something was put together
