Selling FED
« on: September 08, 2021, 10:37:11 AM »

 At the point in my life when I would like to sell my FED. I am at a loss for the best way to get the exposure I need to get it sold. Any thoughts on that would be appreciated.

A good place to start is a detailed description.
Include things like wheelbase,
How far the engine is out (center of rear axle to mid plate)
How wide the chassis is in the driver compartment.
Set up for what engine?
Rearend brand and gear ratio. Wheel and tires sizes are helpful.
How old it is and include chassis updates.
Is it currently certified.
Also list things like what extra's are included. Headers, firesuit and even what shifter it has.
If you can't load pictures, include your cell phone number. Everyone has a cell phone to receive pictures.
And of course how much $$$

Here's one site that gets some attention
https://www.racingjunk.com/category/150/Nostalgia.html

If you are on Facebook I've heard theres active marketplace for Nostalgia stuff, sorry I have no links as I'm not in there myself.
This particular forum is really slow for reason or another beyond my knowledge. I doubt you get anything sold here.
I'm fast. I can make five mistakes while others think.

Any reason you wouldn't post it here in the "For Sale" classifieds? Description, price and photos would be a start.
