Looks like they have stores in PA and also in FL. Good feedback on ebay. Anyone with real experience?

I would stay away from that 68 Yellow GTX. The good on the car is it is all numbers matching. The bad is the car has had every panel replaced that you can think of and it was not done that good. It sold a mecum in Jan for around $28K if I remember correctly.

As for there reputation can not speak on it.

I sold him a 1971 340 Challenger convertible a few years ago. Typical dealer, agreed on a price, showed up to buy the car, beat me up more on the price, took pics and put it on his website for ~$20K more than he paid ( I am not complaining since I got what I wanted for the car). By the way the last time I checked he still has the car 3 years later. The car I sold him was a very solid AZ numbers matching 340 car.

Bottom line - He seems like a stand up guy, just operates like most dealers do to make money. Go look at the car and make sure you know what you are buying and know he probably has plenty of room to negotiate.

I visited the Florida store.
Conditionwise the cars had a very wide range.
Of course being a dealer he is never cheap but some cars seemed to be priced more reasonably than others.

In November 2017 a 68 GTX in TT1 green with fender tag was 29k $ while a 318 1970 Coronet with a 440 thrown in and painted black was more $$$

Thanks Doug & Carsten. I was interested in a Mr Norms "A" body. Looks like good documentation, just an unreasonable price tag.

Yes & I even like the color. There's a couple things needing attention but not bad.

Dealers are obviously in business to make money. I was just saying he uses the same playbook as most of them do. Pick the car apart and beat the seller down on the price as much as possible and then list the car for up to double the price they paid. As I said I am not complaining since I got what I wanted for the car and he still owns it 3 years later at his inflated dealer price. He just has not found his fish to real in yet.
