Copy and paste of the ad description
"1966 Chevrolet G10 van...Privately owned...Garage kept...Original 230 I6 and 3 speed trans...Custom paint; Cloud White over Mint Green...New upholstery... Big and little BF Goodrich radial tires mounted on Cragar SS rims with spinners...AM/FM stereo with speakers...NO rust...A few "dimples"...Runs great...As seen in the HBO series, The Deuce...Not many G series on the market in this condition...Professional inspections are welcome and encouraged...Contact Mike at [hidden information] for an appointment to check it out in Queens Village NY...Intelligent offers will be considered...Offer accepted...Sale is pending"


$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.

Ok... Ok...

Just so you know, Kursed...
You are supposed to post the ad and let US heckle it.
lol

But you're right.
It's a big mess, and I agree with everything you said.

While the radio might actually be fairly decent (I have a nice Pioneer that looks kind of like that), it looks like they cut the hole with a tree saw (look how wavy it is at the top of the hole).
Those 6x9 boxes just plunked down on the floor like that are laughable.
That, and the blue interior tell me most of what I need to know.

I might do $3250 on that one.

lol

I'm just tired of seeing these ridiculously overpriced ads all over Facebook, eBay, Craigslist and everywhere in between. So stupid, and it's not just the vans. 67-72 Chevy C & K series trucks are the same way. Ever since the Mecum auction and American Pickers hit TV, every Jim Bob thinks they're sitting on some ultra rare gold mine, and every Larry, Curly, and Moe think they can slap a half-a@# paintjob on something, call it custom, and ask an astronomical price for it. Figured I would pick on one for a change.

Sad thing is, the ad says "sale pending" so someone was dumb enough to fall for it, which just means it will happen even more.
