Not quite sure how he could say that in one sentence, and then go into the work that he has done so far....He also said it's rust free, and then says there's a hole in the quarter?? Doesn't the brown paint job count?
I'm sure it's a great restorable car, but far from unmolested.

OK, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and ask this question; what if this was a long standing member here, would you treat them with such grace and kindness? Who knows, it might be that he/she decided not to post it for sale here. Words! Once spoken can never be retracted and always leave their mark - just sayin.... :|

UPDATE: I sent the seller a question regarding his sale - his reply: "Dear nprime,

As I had explained in the ad the only rust I found was a cancer hole the size of a silver dollar on the passenger side lower front quarter. There's obviously patina colored surface rust in other places, but in terms of rust... this is an VC code Arizona belair, that was originally manufactured in Los Angela's California. Here are a few more pic's of the truck and undercarriage. Feel free to give me a call. Paul 4802901596

Does not matter, truth is not always your friend. If I am wrong, I expect to be called out, same goes for others.

I guess that original, unrestored ,and unmolested means different things to different people. I am not going to slam the seller but that is not my idea of original, unrestored and unmolested. It should be all original paint , drivetrain and interior to fall in that category.

If this seller was a long standing member of bowtie-trifive He would know we would slam him for the BS he was putting out about this car.
It could be a great car for somebody. But I would not trust the seller.

I'm a new girl here that just registered on this site to try and gain some knowledge on fixing up my 57 Chevrolet and cannot believe what I am reading! What is it with you men that you think you HAVE to throw rocks at somebody's car for whatever reason. My goodness, if you do not agree with his assessment of his car, does not mean you HAVE to belittle his dream. Out of 20 comments on this particular subject, only nickp and joninomader were gracious enough to cut him some slack. Just because you can, does not mean you should!!1
I, for one, am having second thoughts about the real aims of this forum and I bet there are others that feel as I do.
