$12,000 and where do we begin with this one. I can sum up why this should be a $2,000 van in one picture the seller included in their sale add.
1 - Exterior painted, didn't bother to paint any of the interior door jams etc.
2 - Dust spot on the seat says this one has been sitting for a long time. Probably had a magazine or a stack of papers in the seat. Doesn't say "New upholstery" as the seller claims to me.
3 - Old cheapie triple gauge set slapped to the bottom of the dash, wires and lines simply pulled through the firewall. How much you want to bet it's attached with sheetmetal screws and no rubber grommet in the firewall for the lines to run through.
4 - "AM/FM stereo" as the seller states, but it's in a cut out hole in the dash, and appears to be a cheap Walmart unit.
5 - 1/4" of dust and grime on the dash, again tells me this thing has been sitting and neglected for a long time.
6 - Couldn't be bothered with removing the weather-strip before doing that "Custom Paint" job. Heck, they couldn't even tape it off. This paintjob screams $600 backyard job to me.
7 - Let me just plop these 6x9 speaker boxes right here in the middle of the floor.... REALLY!?!!?
Among those things, here's a little more:
"NO rust" - I bet I could find some, and lots of Bondo hiding what isn't visible. Oh wait, I already did, bottom corner of the passenger door and a bubble of rust right above that.
"A few dimples" - half of the passenger side is one big messy dent.
"Professional inspections are welcome and encouraged" - No way no how. A professional wouldn't waste their time with this mess.
