    Allegedly the seller confirmed the 65K, obvs could be bullshit. Edd do you know someone that got a second chance offer?

    I know for a fact this happened

    25k was how low down the list it got as far as I know
    Could be lower
    And that is how you get an overpriced price for your sale.
    Loads of daft/multi bids,thus enticing genuine buyers to bid perhaps a little more than the car is deemed to be worth,and probably more than they would like to pay.Auction ends,oh noes the big bids were "messers,their neighbours cat put the winning bid in etc"
    Then the second chance offers are sent to real bidders,again a little more than they bid and a cars worth.
    car sells for daft money.seller wins.
    Not saying that's the case with this but I have heard of that happening with similar bid patterns and second chance offers way lower than the final sale.

    I am pretty sure the sellers Facebook post was that a deposit had been paid. Now that could mean that the bidder, who had agreed to a sale had paid a deposit, not necessarily a bidder who bid 65k. Reading between the lines here there were a lot of bidders who didn't want to pay up for whatever reason. We can guess that the car sold for around 25k or around this figure.

    This is how I know of the second chance offers

    I went out one evening
    Got wasted with couple mates
    Started talking about the Sport on eBay
    Piss ripped etc
    Showed them the listing
    Thought nothing more of it.....

    ..... Then the day after it allegedly sold for 65k I get a Second Chance Offer for 61k
    I thinks WTF
    I had either placed the bid wasted, or done it with phone in my pocket
    Funny but inadvertently glad I did it as proves it was bull shit
    After talking with others, stories of other second chance offers came to light
    These are genuine

    Perhaps the seller as much to blame than the bidders. Possible half truths on advert and Facebook and not even a reg on advert.
