Oddball Swap: Chevy C10, Ford Galaxie and Mercedes


Yesterday’s “trade only” Mustang isn’t the end of our swap-special finds: the seller of this 1964 Chevy C-10 pickup here on eBay also has a 1964 Ford Galaxie with visible rear end damage and a 1972 Mercedes 300SEL 4.5, all of which he would like to trade for 2 drop-top Chevy Impalas! That takes a special kind of Impala owner to look at these options and trade for a fleet of cars all with significant needs visible in the photos, in addition to whatever mechanical refreshing is necessary to make them road-worthy. I remember when I was trying to trade one BMW for another and advertised only in the BMW specialist publications, and ended up getting just one bite from a guy in Indiana. Needless to say, that trade never happened and I sold the car outright to get what I wanted. For sellers like these, I suspect they know their vehicles will be a tough sell and they’re hoping to make the deal of a lifetime. Does anyone think he’ll get what he’s looking for with these offerings?

    To begin with, the BIN is ridiculous. Looks to me as if he got marching orders from ‘boss’ to “get rid of that junk”, posted this listing in response. “See honey, it’s not that easy…”. Lots of work in the few pix posted, would have to be someone with a unique taste that 1) owned the 2 drop-tops he desires, 2) would want to trade for that grouping.

    That pile isn’t worth ONE convertible, let alone 2.
    Coming from a Mercedes guy: the 4.5 is worth 3-5k truck $1000 and the dented up thing maybe another 2k.
    All under 10 grand ……….
    (Literally) Nothing to see here, folks, ….move along now
