I always love the "no tire kickwers" comment. Just how in the hell are you suppost to look at a car?
Does he have a B.S. meter he uses when you call him?

Speaking of the phrase tire kickers, why does everyone do it and what is it suppose to prove? Ive been known to do it also when looking at a car and have no idea why.

back in the model T days you could lose a wheel fairly easily if the hub was worn out. a good kick would pop it loose and let you know if anything else was loose in the steering also. so tires kickers are people trying to find fault to discount the price of the car. after all no used car sales man would try to pass off a unsafe car on anyone. no need to kick the tires on this one she's sharp

Someone has torn the interior out of this one, no divider, bucket seats, no carb on the engine.The exterior looks solid but dented.The ad would imply there isn't much room to dicker.
Cheers,Pat

Pat, I do think the sub-structure shown in rear compartment is for a table, meaning no divider. If so, with no correlation to asking price, limo style 3-ways are quite uncommon in the US. They were popular in Mexico and the Philippines.

Cheers,Pat

but no matter how different it is gone is gone. one would have to have a parts car to get everything to put the table back togather on. were we have seen a few with a good interier and bad body engine and running gear. they hard to find also.
