Sold! Thank you Lord!
Yesterday I received the final paperwork that will allow the sale of the Paul Nunes Pickup. It is now registered and has insurance paid for one year.
I have had Carlos Saldana at Auto Servicios provide me an estimate of its value in Panama and he said it should bring at least $15,000, so that is the target price I am hoping to get. Submit your bid. When the bids are in I will confer with the heirs to see if the offer is acceptable. I want to thank Carlos who serviced the pickup and assisted me in cleaning it inside and outside.
The original sticker price was $32,000. It is a V-8 gasoline engine and has 126,000 miles on it. I have driven the pickup and it runs and drives very good. It has all the bells and whistles. It is a 4X4.
It is used by a building contractor and has a special metal frame, as seen in the photos, for carrying lumber. It also has a custom lockable metal storage that should have a value in the US of around $350.
The tires, including the spare, are all in good condition. The is very clean and appears to have been well taken maintained. I had hoped to have this sold before I left on vacation, but I don’t think that is going to be possible. This post will remain on top until the pickup is sold.
It will be available to be seen by appointment now and while I am out of the country. You can submit a bid by writing email@example.com or by leaving a sealed bid with Jorge Cedeño at Restaurante Mana.
This is the last of the items from the Paul Nunes estate. If you need a truck, make a bid. There are several tools that will be included with the pickup. I see no need for a special auction. A reasonable offer on the pickup will receive the tools as well. There is a small ACE table saw, a heavy duty drill, lots of wrenches, levels and other items.
UPDATE Aug 4: This post is strictly for answering questions about this vehicle. If you have a question, leave the question as a comment and I will do my best to answer it. If you want to discuss buying and selling things in Panama, the value of your car, the price of eggs in China or anything else then go to some discussion group and discuss it. If you want to bid on this car use the email address above of contact Jorge and he will email me.
UPDATE August 17: I have removed the current bid at the bidders request. If you are interested in the truck pass on your level of interest to Jorge as mentioned above.
