That went pretty cheap. Considering the color, engine/transmission combo may not have been too bad a deal if car isn't too rusty.

Too bad seller didn't have more pictures and details sad smiley

What the bummer to me is.... we probably will never hear from the new owner and will probably never know it's overall condition....

That one was only about an hour or so from me. I would've been happy to go look at it for someone. That goes for any Corvair in the upstate SC/western NC/northeast GA area. I really don't mind going to look... It gives me some time away from my twins!

I posted on Queen City's Facebook page asking if anyone knows the car. It's in their backyard.

I asked the seller about coming to see the car in person but he hasn't responded.

Okay, so I emailed the seller at 8am. It is now 8:33pm and no response. It doesn't sound to me like they want anyone coming to get a closer look. Since the seller appears to be running a shop, who is to say that they didn't just put lipstick on a pig. The engine compartment looks pretty bad, but the interior and paint look great... Maybe new? Bad floors, but new interior? I don't know. Also, why did the previous buyer back out of the deal? There are way too many unanswered questions here.

OR, they know that the car is not worth what it appears to be, and they are enjoying making some easy cash with that "Non-refundable" portion of the deposit!

You're right Matt. I am on the impatient side, but business owners that don't check their email daily are asking to lose business and money. This guy owns or works at one of the two Porsche shops in Denver NC.

For ebay listings I think a response within 24 hours is acceptable. I would note it in the listing if I couldn't respond within a reasonable time. He has decent seller feedback.

I messaged him a few days ago he did invite me to come look at it but I just haven't had time. It's about 325 miles from me. I was bidding on it the last time around a little concerned after the sale fell through. I talked to a friend in SC that has seen pictures of the underneath he said it has had some major rust repairs that were poorly done. He said its drivable but he wouldn't try to restore it.
