$500 for an Eliminator?

Now, how many of you were watching this one last week? 0F91M510481

$500 for an Eliminator? And we all thought those days were long gone!

Here is the page from the Mustang Beginnings website. Date tag on the pics is 2007... and before they stripped it of anything that could be used in a Mustang >.< Too bad Mustang Beginnings didn't pick up on any of the clues. Or maybe they did and just didn't care?

I just hope the new owner knows what he bought and isn't going to just scrap it.

It was fun watching this and texting people on it. I did keep quiet so it would not blow up and cost someone far more than it should have. But I was shocked to see it go for only $500.00

Looks like it still has the wooden shifter handle.

Only in the website photos is the shifter still in place, on the ebay ad the shifter is completely gone.

Man, that thing is beat up and missing everything. What would it cost to restore, $50,000? It'll be interesting to see if the new owner surfaces & find out what they plan to do with it.
