Funny Feeling About This Vert!

Maybe it's the after market side trim, or the wrong rocker mouldings, or incorrect seat upholstery, or crinkle paint valve cover, or...................there is no visible rust.

It's always a gamble on eBay. You could call this dealer and ask questions.

MY I THINK IT'S NICE OVERALL, COSMETICALLY THAT STUFF CAN BE EASILY REPLACED!
THE CAR ITSELF IS WELL MAINTAINED IMO, IF IT IS WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE, I'D BE ALL IN.
SOMEBODY ASK FOR PICS UNDERNEATH, TO SEE WHAT'S GOIN' ON THERE!

We rip people for selling a car with a couple small pics then there is this person with way too many large pics that show little more than the previous pic. Over the top for sure IMO.

For some reason I seem to be very skeptical of cars from Florida, this one included.

Something about it seems odd to me as well. Appears nice but not a fan of the fender skirts, headlight visors etc. Just being nit picky I guess but car is not doing it for me.....guess that's why there is different hair color for woman.

The ad states, "the interior is white with blue apointments " Looked all blue to me.

They don't come right out and say it is original but I get the impression they're trying to make it out like it is, "mainly original" which it cannot possibly be. Definitely don't like the trunk paint on the underside of the trunk lid and I agree with LMH, I don't like the skirts or headlights.

For sure there's middle ground when it comes to pictures. Repeating the same angles over and over makes little sense. The seller would have been wiser to spend more time on the word description. It mentions buckets, white upholstery, etc.. It seems he might have just tried to edit a different ad for use with this car and failed to delete a few things that don't apply.
