Bought a car at a auction --it was the auctioneers own

Customer Question

Bought a car at a auction --it was the auctioneers own vehical. 1951-f600. He neglected to mention it had sever electrical problems. He had a 12 bolt battery in it -- and it's a 6 volt system. Am I out of luck ? Or should I be able to get money back because of misrepresentation ?

I am sorry for this dilemma.

Partly this depends on what assurances the seller it depends on the auction format.

What, if anything, did the seller tell you about this rig before the sale?

Did they mention the condition of the electrical system?
