How many things wrong with this car?

A one of a kind must see 1963 Corvair convertible. Current bid $11,100.00.

To me this car has several things wrong with it for that price.

How many objectionable things to you see?

I'd be a little upset seeing that car show up after shelling out over $11K. I guess you'd really have to like that deck lid. I wish I knew who did the restoration so I could make sure they didn't work on my customer's cars.

Luckily, the potential buyers have not hit the reserve yet. I can't believe it has a reserve higher than about 2K but it does.

Could it be the seller has buddies who know the reserve and are running the bid up?

This was suppose to be a complete restoration. The underside, as mentioned is very scary. The arm rest pads and bases are not like 'new'. Why is the spare in the trunk? Hood and deck gaps are horrible. Depending on the angle of the camera, the paint may be a problem. As mentioned, maybe a $2K car just based on the pictures. That car must be close to here. If I'm bored tomorrow, maybe I'll try to find what lot is selling the car.

Upper passenger quarter panel upholstery is ripped.
Passenger front window fuzzy is missing.
Underneath looks awful.
