    Man it is bad! there is a whole lot of wiring hacks and splices going to nowhere I can fix all the electrical but the rest is going to be a farm out I think. I really don't think its worth keeping
    Right strut rod is adjustable Left side fixed battery was mover to the left side and there is a big hole cut in the R inner fender patched with a old road sign
    May be a crusher !

    I do not think there is any recourse. It most likely would cost more than what it is worth. plus usually its buyer beware!
    Plus it came from So Cal.
    Good news is I am able to unload it to somebody that has a shop and a few employees who have done work on other projects. I was up front on what was wrong with it and he still wants it.
    A big hit it the pocket book, got it sold for less that 1/4 what i paid for it.
    I think it is going to be much cheaper taking a loss on it than trying to make it right.
    Maybe the next on will be better and a Public reminder always look before you buy! Never,Never take someone's word for it and what they think is a treasure is most likely JUNK until proven other wise

    At least it is only money. You can make more of that. It sucks but in the grand scheme of things, money is cheap. The lesson, priceless.

    Cheers,

    OUCH ! Tough love lesson 569 got you. Never buy a car without inspecting it in person or hiring a reliable appraisal guy to check it for you. Just sold two cars to a guy from Sweden. He wanted them bad enough to fly over and inspect them in person. He had been bitten just like you. I got burnt on a 72 Ranchero from SoCal years ago, that car might as well have come from a Northern state considering how much hidden rust it had. Don't let this fiasco ruin your love of old cars, learn how to be picky in your next search.

    At the very least there are a few of us that have the ability to inspect a car, and I've done it a few times myself for a fellow member on Fullsizebronco com.

    I know better with inspecting a vehicle but my love of the vehicle got the better of me. I had seen it on Ebay on bid and passed on it and then I decided to try bidding a little later at the last min. of bidding and lost out on the bid. I got a notification from the seller if I wanted the vehicle because winning bidder failed to pay.
    So I jumped on it and now I am sorry , should of let it slide

    That smacks of underhanded selling. It's why I won't buy via ePay, even if I had money.

    PayPal is a pretty safe way to pay. They have settled a couple of issues I had, as a buyer.

    Yea ! Paypal is good but the unfortunate thing is it became a private sale since the bidding ended

    Even with PP, I just think that the 'seller' is pulling a fast one, perhaps a backhand way of shilling the bidding?

    At the very least you should leave a scathing comment on the seller's site just to warn future buyers.

    I have been trying leave feed back but having difficulties with leaving it
    The seller had 100% good feed back , that's why I bought it unseen.
    Trying to leave feed back about the seller cannot find a link.
    It became a private sale after auction ran out Ebay has no link for feed back

    Then buy something else from him, just so you have a link to a sale, then blast him for the car.
