Everyone's tastes are different. You believed in someones integrity, and got screwed. Live with it.
I AGREE COMPLETELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF[ MORE SO IF YOUR SPENDING THAT KIND OF MONEY ops: :cry: :cry: ops:

I've watched this whole thread from the beginning, and my response really doen't mean much to the buyer. BUT! he really got what what he paid for. A (5) in the paint job by one of his own friends, hey he's not buying a Chip Foose paint job here for $28,000.00, body work is hard to see in the photo's. The only thing that troubles me is the subframe installation that's obviously installed 2"/2 1/2" off center. That's not right in anyone's book.
To me the truck is beautiful and showable, piece of s*it NOT. I donot know what the buyer expected to get for $28,000.00 but i just sold a 55 chevy on ebay for $37,000.00 and it too wasn't perfect. I also turned down 4 bids for a little less.
IMO, the buyer needs to realize what he's buying here, as listed not perfect.

i agree with zipper06, from what i can see, its lookin preety good. paint issue aside its a good lookin truck.i would fix the subframe shoot some paint and be happy as hell. i think the truck is well worth 28,000. if i was selling it id say its got some problems with this and that, but 28,000 is where its at.

Ok, before when I tried to see the ad it wouldn't come up...now it does.

Iagree with Zip...You must be hard to please...especially when you DID NOT go look at it yourself. A truck like that took a lot of work to build so 28 grand does not seem unreasonable.

I don't get what you guys are saying about the subframe being off center?? what pic shows that? Are you refering the the wheel being centered in the opening? just curious.

edit: If you mean the rear end then yeah I see that...thought subframe was refering to front clip.

Coolest truck on the planet? Nope.

Piss poor craftsmanship on the rear suspension? Yep

Wether it is was worth 28k, plus shipping? Depends,
I'm sure you thought it was a good deal or you wouldnt have bought it in the first place, correct?
Always remember the definetion of a good deal is that when both parties think the other guy got screwed, so perhaps you didn't get such a "good deal" this time but instead, you got what you paid for. You win some you lose some. If your not happy with the truck then you have options. Personally I'd quit whinning about it and move on, your not gonna get much sympathy here, just honest opinions especially since you didnt even take the time to go look at the truck in person. Buying a vehicle sight unseen is never a good idea.
You can sell it and try to recoup your funds or you can fix the things that you dont like about it. JMO
goodluck, Cp

MAN O MAN!!!

I JUST GOT THE PICTURE UP AND LOOKED AGAIN---YOU ARE MOST WRONG IF YOU THINK THIS WAS NOT WORTH THE MONEY ops: ops:

THE TRUCK HAS TONS OF GOOD WORK/ NICE PARTS AND CLASS!!

IF YOU CAN'T STAND THE PAINT PUT IT BACK ON THE MARKET AND SELL THIS PIECE OF" FLAWED JUNK" /THEN YOU CAN BUY ANOTHER ONE' [THAT YOU CAN LOOK AT PERSONALLY]--AND BE HAPPIER IN THE END [I THINK :roll: :roll: :roll: ]

Hey Todd,

The ad said it had a Camero front subframe, if the passenger right front wheel is 3 to 4" more inside the right front fender(the buyer stated this in his post) then the sub frame must be installed off center. The Camero subframes are used a lot on the early front conversions on old trucks. We have one under way now a 1948 Ford pickup.
The problem is a lot of people cut both the front end off and the rearend off at the same time taking away the tooling points on the frame and they have no good measuring points on the frame.
I think that's what happened here, but that's JMO.
