Someone should email him telling him he has a typo and offering him $38.00 for it, and then ask if he will include shipping at that price.

I already did. LOL! I asked him if he meant to enter $380 for the price. He replied to me with the same thing he told Booch.

It took me a second to put that together.

Luckily, I live close by (20 miles away from Jeff the mom) so I can save on shipping and pick it up in person.

I spent a little over $52,000 on the car I just restored so $3800. just doesn't seem like a lot to me.

Not hard to do, especially with the prices he pays for parts.

If I bought all of my parts from him I would spend $351,565,333.61 on a restoration.

Some people think Thing parts are made of gold. If your part doesn't sell in a year or more after posting, maybe you're asking too much.

They haven't sold in 1 1/2 years maybe you are asking too much? You can buy new ones from the Thing shop for less...

It sounds like he has multiples and is also selling rebuilt ones through the ad so that probably explains the duration

Everett is right, I do have several Nos wiper motors and have sold some over the years to people that prefer NOS over rebuilt. You may not be aware that these Thing wiper motors are NLA. As far as my pricing, I believe that it is very reasonable when you consider that the 2 main vendors for Thing parts sell their rebuilt motors (with no core) for about $450. I hope I've answered your curiosity regarding my ad.

The number 38 sure does seem to be popular with Things:
