Nice touch with the out-of-focus pic of the backside. No doubt, clueless buyer will not get the box either.

Maybe it is new old (1990s vintage) stock. ::)

If the buyer does get the box, you can be sure the original part number on the box will be scratched off and replaced with the new part number hand written in.  The new number may not even be right.

The craziest part is that he currently has 1868 eBay feedbacks, 100% positive.

Is there some way he's tricking the eBay feedback system?

Unfortunately, probably well.  Guys like this have no conscience. You just have to hope one day that they rip off the wrong guy and street justice ensues.

Does anyone else find it ironic that he lives in "Burnsville"?!?!  ;D

most of the buyers don't know they bought a repro and not an OEM parts , i remember the henry ford II mustang convertible that's sold not long time ago , with the chrome air filter cover that was suppose to be a NOS one ...never had a chance to say to the owner it was a repop, and it's really touchy to say it to somebody you don't know personnaly "hey you get screwed ! "...

It was re-named after him. He's a local legend.

He has to be somehow.  NO way he could have that many happy customers!!!  I have wondered for years how he pulls that off.

Have you ever actually spoken with him? He called me last year when I had a ‘67 service replacement hood for sale on eVay. He’s actually kinda charming in a redneck sort of way.  Then he bragged that he had a ‘red light car’ project he was looking to sell.  Big mistake.  Now he’s crossed over into a much more serious place. No more sharpies and faked Ford blue boxes.  Bad news. :-\

Keep in mind that after so many Days you can not go back and correct your positive feed back.  Most people wont know that have been screwed until it is to late.

I agree. Many have no clue they've been screwed because often they are accumulating parts for the restoration that aren't being used immediately and don't find out a worthless piece of crap like this has lied and ripped them off.  You only have 45 days.
So many don't know about the Concours and SAAC forum. I wish I would of.  He burned me too for 1200.00.
The best thing we can do is send him messages when we catch them. Ebay can read all of them. We can hope when someone files a complaint that they see he was advised of problems with what was being sold.
