Bad Bronco Bretheren... Avoid "earlybroncoman"

Back in August I traded a 69 Bronco for a 72 from earlybroncoman from CB.com. We met in Las Cruses NM, checked out the rigs, I wasn't happy with the 72 and informed earlybroncoman that I wasn't comfortable giving up my axles as part of the trade. Told him we could either NOT do the trade and I'd keep my 69 Frame and body I had. And he could keep his 72 POS he had. He said "We are already here, let's just go through with it." LUCKILY, I kept my HPD60/10.25 out of the trade.

At the time of the trade, neither of us had titles to bring. I informed him I'd send the title to the 69 A.S.A.P. Once I got the title to the 69, I sent it and he confirmed he received it. Waited a month and finally sent him a request for the title for the 72. Said he had it and was going to be in the mail "tomorrow". I'm still waiting almost a month later.

So, what do I do about a bad seller who didn't follow through with the deal? Can I get a replacement title? Or is this Bronco now scrap to me?

I still have his personal name/address/phone number if there is anything legal I can do about this. If not, anyone want parts of a 72 rusty POS?

I realize this seller isn't on P4x4.com. If he is, it may be under a different name. But, I wanted everyone to be warned of him none the less. If I abused any rule by him not being registered here under this name, I'm sorry. Please delete if necessary.

I thought it was fairly common to buy a glove box door and title from a junk Bronco and make a good one out of a bad?

i had a similar deal earlier this year and explained to the dmv that the guy fell off the face of the earth. i filled out a form and now have the title. still pissed me off though. never trust anyone. especially those who try to pressure you into a deal and/or those who tell you how honest they are.

Kyle, that is an option but, technically, an illegal option.

BillyBob... I'm honest. Trust me...

Seriously, I'm pissed about this. I had intended to build this rig. But, if I can't get a legal title, I'm seriously considering scrapping it.

Unfortunately... No. New Mexico doesn't require one to register a vehicle. So, I forget to ask for them since I haven't used one in nearly 20 years.

don't know about new mexico, but here in the east you can apply for a lost title through the DMV and as long as the vehicle hasn't been stolen and reported as so, you should be able to get one.

Through cb.com ebman has offered to make the deal right. So, for now, hold off on this.

Did say he was holding the title to be a d!ck. But, that he did send it out earlier this month. I still don't have the title.

I know plenty of guys with frames, glove boxes and titles all that match for less than $200 they would sell you. You'd definitely be legit then. Check around. Plenty of guys on CB.com have a bunch of parts EB's they'd be willing to help you out.

Just go to your DMV and apply for a lost title. Unless the Vin has a registered lien against it or is reported stolen it should not be that big of a deal.

In indiana we have a mechanics lein that can be put on a vehicle against the title if there is something owed to you. pretty much if i worked on a car and customer did not pay i could file for this and it goes through the DMV or quicker like 2 weeks if you spend the 100 bucks with the title service out of indy it gives the last person on the title a chance to make it right or a replacement title is sent to you . i did this on a 74 i had a bad deal on.
