A mortuary refrigerator from a Manhattan psychiatric hospital is being sold in "used" but "good condition" on eBay.
Bidding for the 8ft tall, 6ft wide, steel fridge, which has four doors for body storage, has already reached $805 (£530).
Some 41 bids have been placed since Thursday and there are still four days of bidding left.
New York's Office of General Services, which is attempting to make the sale, told the New York Post that the ad was not a hoax.
She said the agency does get unusual surplus items to sell from time to time, including barber chairs from prisons and police cars, but she did not recall a previous sale of a morgue cooler.
She added there are no rules about who the cooler can go to - any individual or agency could take it - and no background checks are required.
The ad notes the buyer must pick it up from the Manhattan Psychiatric Center using his or her own transportation.
"Buyer must dismantle unit to remove from room," it says.
The buyer, the ad notes, is responsible for cleaning it. It also states the fridge is in good condition with few scrapes and bangs.
"The potential buyer is strongly encouraged to inspect item prior to bidding," it says.
The item is a Norlake Scientific 4 Drawer Morgue Refrigerator with compressor on top.
