Somebody had started working on this car and then just gave up. Given the bad quality of the work that we found, it was most likely in the car’s best interest. The engine was advertised as being a “late-model 350,” but in fact, it was a tired old 305 that had been given a rattle-can rebuild. I don’t think the seller was trying to be sneaky, he was just wrong. This is one of the dangers of buying a car without checking it out in person. On the plus side, the car came with several sets of window and side trim, along with a few boxes of new parts.
