Now boys....perhaps this is a 100% sincere offer and one or more of them will be available for purchase. Keep your eyes on ebay for further posting about this "once-in-a-lifetime" discovery....or not.

Ok, so we all agree it's a scam, why can't the moderators ban this guy?

Probably because the moderators are laughing at the fact that this thread is still active, now 4 pages long, and many people continue to chime in with their ruffled feathers. It was a relatively harmless initial post and it is entertaining to continue to read the responses :lol:

Ronnie Guin brought his crated jeep to the Louisville convention. I haven't ask him the price but I think he has at least $50 in lumber so he will want to make a profit if it includes the jeep.

OK, I am no sleuth. That being said, we have reasonable cause to assume this Kiers419 is a G member. 419 being Ohio area code we should surmise that the G member is in Ohio. Any ideas?

I found them. He was right. Kiers 419 was telling the truth.

I bought all 5 of them. Sorry guys. I'm willing to sell one for $800, two for $3000, three at $6000 and four for $19000. You must forward cash to an account I have in Geneva Switzerland. Then I will disclose the location for your pickup. Thanks Kiers. You're the best man!

My uncle Tommy sent off the funds to buy a crated Jeep back around 1966. I couldn't understand why my dad refused to order one too, and was mad about it.

He died in 2008, the Jeep never delivered, but I am sure these things simply take time to process. So, once it is finally delivered, it will go to me, since I am the only surviving heir to his estate. I am sure I'll want to sell it, and wouldn't dare disturb such an important historical artifact by taking it out of the crate.

Ronnie sold his for $3500, you can see it in Frank Buck's museum.

I bought the 6th one behind your 5.
I was lucky to be just after you.

I just bought one off the pier in NJ last week, still sitting there since the War. Guy had about 20, but all I had was $200 so I couldn't buy a second one, as I needed to put gas in it and drive it home after uncrating. Gas cost me more than the $50 jeep.
Wish I had his phone number to pass along, but he was in sort of a hurry, something about wanting to avoid import Tariffs or such, so he figured he would just dump them off the coast since no one else was interested in them.
