IMHO, I wouldn't put it past the right person to say "I'll teach this guy!" and he says he sold it - when perhaps he really didn't.
I think he left and the guy called him back and accepted.

Verbal contracts, when legal, usually start after the money (consideration) has changed hands. Without that, there is no contract.

If he had taken your money and then backed out, you might have a leg to stand on, but nobody sues over $1,200.

Yeah. I made an offer. Hours later he texted back and accepted. I told him great, I'd get him money when the bank opens and take it out to his house. He said great. The next night I called to see when I could grab it and he told me that someone else was going to come and get it.

No, verbal is good as long as I relied on it. Which I did. I let another option go because he accepted. It could be a good argument. I have all the conversations recorded. I don't think it's worth a court issue. I was just super angry that because I thought it was happening I let another setup go.

If he would have accepted when I was out to his place I would have paid him. I just really wanted to know what I should do as a human, I am sure I could win in court on a specific performance theory, but then it becomes more of a hassle when the car is in a separate owner's possession, but I am not really going to win much else since i didn't lose anything. The guy doesn't have money to pay any award granted anyway.

I was just pissed. Still am. Actually, now I am just bummed.

Stepping back and thinking about it, I am grateful because now I know what type of project I want to do with my 75 and I can start tearing it apart until I find a different donor car. Which, some of you have pointed me to different avenues that I didn't know were there. I appreciate the feedback.

Sorry I sell car parts and sometimes cars or parts cars and nothing is sold until there is cash in my hand. I can't tell you how many times someone has said "I'm coming to get it" or "let me run to the bank" and I never see them again. Cash talks bullshit walks. End of story.
