Quality Pre-Owned Vehicles That Are Fun To Buy!

Thank you for considering my vehicle! My name is Ed Zarick and I have been a licensed and bonded, independent auto dealer for over 27 years here in the Sunshine State. Florida dealer licensed as Ed’s Florida Cars. For over the past 18 years, I have sold literally hundreds of quality cars and trucks at great prices here on eBay Motors and will continue to do so for years to come. I work by myself and I can afford to sell for less than the car lots do. This is no part-time endeavor for me! It's what I do to support my family! In order for me to stay competitive in a crowded market place, I have to work harder then the other guy to earn your business and that is what I do. You will always get 100% personalized service to be sure your experience is a good one. Never any extra "dealer fees" or other ridiculous add-ons, just a simple and honest, no-nonsense approach that is easy to deal with. I want to earn your business now and in the future! Just check my feedback, it speaks volumes!

All my offerings are put through a service/safety check and road test to be sure they are safe and road worthy. I make sure the oil has been changed and do an inspection of the brakes, belts, hoses, cooling system, fluid levels, etc. Of course, every vehicle will ride and drive with the engine and transmission performing as expected. If you would prefer to have a third party inspect the car before bidding, I am most willing to help you facilitate that. I know of several shops in town that will deal with you directly or you are welcome to locate one on your own. Either way, I will deliver the car there for you and pick it up after inspection for no extra charge. Of course, the shop would charge a nominal fee and would bill you directly, but I will even reimburse your inspection charges if you end up buying the vehicle!!!

I know it can be hard to buy a vehicle that you can't see in person, so I will do my best to present it as well as I possibly can through pictures and accurate description. What you will get from me is an honest, down to earth presentation with any notable cosmetic issues disclosed. What you won't get is a flowery, over exaggerated sales pitch that makes a car seem better than new or bigger than life! Check my feedback and you will see what other happy customers have to say. That's my best advertisement! If you have ANY questions at all, please feel free to call me on my mobile phone @ 239-940-4170. I am more than willing to to address any concerns you may have about the vehicle, the price, finalizing the deal, taking possession or any other details. If there is ANYTHING at all I can do to help you make your decision, please just let me know!! I want to be better than the "other guys"!

Well, on to the vehicle! Just so you know, whether you decide to fly in to Fort Myers and drive home or have the vehicle shipped, I will assist you any way I can on this end by meeting with the transporter or picking you up at the airport! Please be sure to read the bidding/buying guidelines at the bottom of the page, they are very important. I thank you in advance for your business and your trust in me!

Selling this awesome 1972 Chevelle SS 454 with a 4-speed and air conditioning! And it’s a real SS! No clone here! Has the “W” in the VIN denoting an SS454 and I also have the build sheet to go with it! Original floorpans and quarter panels, not a chopped up or “panel replaced” example, one solid original car with performance upgrades to make it a beast! I have been having a blast driving around! Tons of torque and she handles tight around corners with very little lean, feels like a sports car! And the exhaust tone of the cammed 454 is what we muscle car people live for! So sweet! This beauty was just traded in at the Naples Chevy dealership and I was very fortunate to get it and offer for sale here. Anyway, you can read the following detailed description and there are over 75 pictures below letting you see how good this one is! Done VERY well, it’s not some cobbed together old car!! This is the kind of Chevelle you can be very proud of at any show, easily drive every day and have a lot of fun doing it! Especially with the cold Vintage Air conditioning! And you could NEVER replace it or reproduce it for the money I am asking. You know as well as I do what build costs are and then you would have to find a solid original and real SS to start with!

Drivetrain- The motor has had work done on it for much more power than original including the later desireable 336781 heads, aluminum Weiand intake and high dollar Quick Fuel Technology carb. I don’t know for sure if the block is original as there are no numbers stamped on the the front pad. It appears to have been decked for more compression. It does sport Hooker headers and dual exhaust. I do not know what cam was used, but the awesome lopey idle and quick revving lets me know it’s the right one. Underneath is a 12 bolt 3.73 posi rear with aluminum case Super T-ten Borg Warner 4-speed transmission puts all that power to the ground very effectively. I don’t know the gearing used in the tranny, but definitely built for quick acceleration! Starts right up every morning, solid and strong and no smoking exhaust. The clutch is tight with no slipping and the transmission shifts as it should. This was a recent build and you will see pics of the clean, sludge free cylinder heads below. All very well done, even reflects in the quality fasteners used.

Suspension- All new front and rear tubular control arms with new springs and Bilstein shocks and fat sway bars. Tight and handles like a sports car! I think the control arms/springs are lowering it a bit for better handling, see the side pictures for the stance. I know you will be happy with the way it feels and the power steering and power brakes make it all the more better!

Exterior- As I said above, this is a solid original body with what appears to be all original panels and floorpans. A little rust is starting right behind the rear wheels, way less than even what typically shows up. Very common and an easy fix to be able to keep the original quarters. One repaint has been been done in the original Sequoia Green and done very professionally!! NOT a cheap respray by any means at all! Deep shine and color that rivals or beats the factory finish. It is an older repaint with a few small touchups/blems here and there, but nothing that takes away the sweet look! Not a 20k dollar, 100 point perfect show stopping finish, but far above what some would call driver quality. I loved it! If this was going to be my personal car, I would redo the spots behind the rear wheels and that’s it. The white vinyl top is excellent also with no tears or cracks, appears to have been replaced as it looks new.

Interior- Extremely nice and original! I had one lower panel replaced in the drivers seat because of a couple seam splits and my upholstery guy said these appeared to be the original seat covers! Not dried out or hard, just that great feel of the originals. While the seat was out getting fixed, I removed the passenger side to get pics of the full carpet, you will see below. I think it may have been replaced as it’s too new looking to be from 1972, but you can see they used a high end kit with the snaps and everything! The dash is not cracked and it sports the gauges on the dash panels. Aftermarket gauges are mounted below as the original dash mounts are not working. But, the tachometer and speedometer are working! I also found the clock and radio are not working. I did not try to figure this stuff out, it may well just be a ground issue. Professionally installed Vintage Air is blowing cold!!

Anyway, be sure to read my detailed description and the 75+ pictures below. This will give you an excellent overview to help with your decision. PLEASE feel free to call me directly on my cell phone with any questions at all or to discuss a reasonable offer. You can reach me @ 239-940-4170. I want you to be completely comfortable with your transaction and enjoy the whole experience!

With all that is offered here, my buy it now price should make a lot of sense! Take advantage of a quick purchase with no chance of losing it to someone else or I would consider a close offer. It is sold this way so you know what the price is, honestly offered with no games! I do advertise many of my vehicles locally, but if it is still listed here, it's still for sale!

Please don't let the fear of buying sight unseen keep you from getting something you want. With my $500.00 guarantee, you have basically no risk buying online. Just give me a call on my cell @ 239-940-4170 and we can talk about anything you need to know! Please be sure to look over my buying guidelines below, they should answer most of your questions.

Well, that's my vehicle! You can always bid with confidence on any of my offerings as I strive very hard to offer quality along with an honest description. I have literally sold hundreds of cars and trucks here on eBay and built a very strong feedback rating, so you can feel comfortable with whom you are dealing. If you have any questions or concerns about anything at all, I am always just a phone call away. My cell number is 239-940-4170 and I have it on Monday through Saturday from morning until late at night. PLEASE feel free to give me a ring! I thank you for your interest in my vehicle!

Bidding/Buying Policies

  • The advertised vehicle will be described as accurately as I can, but remember these are used vehicles, they will show signs as such. As stated before, each offering is checked over and inspected before selling, but you are not bidding on nor am I selling new or high priced certified pre-owned cars, so there may be parts of the vehicle that are not like new. Depending on the age of the vehicle, the various systems involved will be at different levels of wear/service life and there may be the typical small chips/dings, blems and other signs of normal wear, inside and out, that you would expect on used vehicles. Obviously, I cannot possibly show or detail every little thing that would be on any used car. I will do my best to describe all the major things so you are clear on what you are buying, but I encourage you to call with any questions you may have before bidding. I want you to be well informed! You can always get ahold of me on my cell @ 239-940-4170. I will be more than glad to walk around the car while on the phone and describe everything I see to give you a hands on view. PLEASE READ MY FEEDBACK! It speaks volumes of how I do business! Of course, all vehicles are sold "as-is" with no warranty expressed or implied unless there is any remaining factory warranty. Cars are mechanical things and mechanical things can stop working! Especially electrical components. Like a light bulb, they can work perfectly, than all of a sudden, not! I am not responsible for check engine, service or other indicator lights or what ever else may stop working after you purchase. I have made all my history statements based on information readily available to me and cannot warrant or guarantee the information or statements as such. Also, there may or may not be extra keys, manuals, remote fobs or other accessories. If not pictured, it's probably not there.
  • I ask that all successful bidders please contact me within 24 hours of auction end to begin process of completing the sale.
  • Customer is responsible to obtain their own insurance on any vehicle purchased. Insurance is provided by the transport company for all vehicles during shipping, but my insurance ceases to cover anything once it is sold. Sold being described as when funds are received in full, not at the time the vehicle is delivered.
  • According to Federal guidelines, all vehicles 10 or more years old are sold exempt from mileage guarantees unless specifically mentioned. If I have documentation to back up the mileage on these older cars, I will.
  • Payment must be made by cash-in-person, cashiers check, money order or bank to bank wire transfer. A $500.00 non-refundable deposit will be expected within 3-5 days following close of auction and remainder paid within 7-10 days. If you have a special situation, please feel free to call ahead of time to discuss. I am very easy to deal with!
  • Florida residents must include 6% sales tax. According to Florida law, if an out of state purchaser takes delivery of a vehicle in the state of Florida I am obligated as a licensed dealer to collect sales tax at a rate equal to the purchasers state sales tax and not to exceed 6%. The purchaser will then be given a notarized form from the State of Florida proving tax paid to present to their tax collectors office for sales tax credit. You DO NOT pay sales tax twice! Any additional fees or taxes will be the responsibility of the purchaser. This does not apply to vehicles shipped out of state, only ones picked up in Florida.
  • Buyer assumes the cost and responsibility of shipping. I already have contacts to ship the vehicle anywhere in the USA, so I can help arrange this for you and give you cost estimate ahead of time. If you are going to fly in and drive home, I will gladly pick you up from the Ft. Myers International Airport and provide you with a free 30 day temporary plate for your vehicle. You must have insurance before a temporary plate can be issued. Temporary plates are not provided for vehicles shipped, only ones picked up in person.
  • All vehicles do have clear titles and are guaranteed to be clean and free of any liens or brands such as salvage or rebuilt. Occasionally, a title will be in transit from the bank or dealership because of a loan payoff and may not be in my immediate possession, but will be processed to you as soon as physically possible.
  • Any buyer with a negative rating will be ignored unless he contacts me first with a good explanation. There is no sense in running up the prices by people who have problems following through with commitments. Remember you are entering into a legally binding contract.
  • By the bidding and/or purchase of this vehicle, buyer obligates him or her self to agree with all guidelines and statements made on this auction page by the seller including "as-is" no warranty statements, sales tax regulations, and insurance requirements.

  • My promise to you is to be as fair, honest and helpful as possible. I have been in the car business for a long time and have enjoyed much success here locally and selling on E-Bay. That did not come about by mistreating my customers or underhanded dealings. Give me a try and you will be pleasantly surprised. You can e-mail me with any questions or feel free to give me a call on my mobile phone @ 239-940-4170. Thank you again!
