    Question Craigslist ads that make you go WHAT THE?!?!?

    I know there's an older thread on this. But it appears to have been untouched in 6 months and was started in 2016. This ad definitely needs to be shared.

    1964 Barracuda/Valiant 4x4 - $8500 (North Hollywood)

    https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sf...689443229.html










    I am selling my very unique car, which is a combination of a Barracuda front end, Valiant Station Wagon body, put on a 1968 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 suspension, along with literally hundreds of hours of very talented custom wood carved interior pieces. It's a very sleek custom one of a kind great running vintage automobile. I myself and my family have very much enjoyed this car and would love to see it go to the right owner. At this point, I am unable to enjoy it anymore, so I'm going to have to part ways. It has a tight 455 Oldsmobile engine with an automatic transmission, also very tight great shape. The car is in very good mechanical condition. No problems from what I can see as I drive it periodically and everything is fine. It's hard to put a price on something like this, make me an offer. Thank You, Contact Duane 805-512-8989

    Wow!!!! Very talented wood carving! But dash is not the best venue for it ( Imo). It looks like wood licence plate below those 1970 Torino tail lights. This should be a fun thread!!

    It looks like you need to ask your front seat passenger to kick it into 4 wheel with the
    transfer case lever that far under the dash and on the other side of the console.

    My first thought was - all that custom work, but cheapo seat covers out of a Chevy truck?
    83 5.0 GT. Quicker than it looks! 10:1 (or just over) 306, Motorsport a332 cam, 140A alt, t5 conv, 8.8 w/ 3.27's, Edel rpm, alum rad, very worked e7's, Holley SA carb, etc... SOLD IT!!!!

    Now an 1981 Granada! Building a 9.5:1 .040 over 302, Edel E-street heads, 268 cam, T5, 8.8 with 3.55, plus all the stiffening goodies, all control arms, lowered, alum shaft, x-pipe with Outlaws...

    I don't think I want that guy to work on my car.
    On the other hand, if he lived near me, I've got a bunch of trim work I need done around the house!

    Found another one. Looks more like someone tried to copy the show's car at home than the one actually used on set to me.

    I'm assuming they forgot the decimal, as in $2120.00 which is still too high IMO.

    It MIGHT be worth the $20k IF Joan Severance personally delivers it and a date with her is part of the deal.

    I'm not sure if this one is the result of brain damage, mental illness, or heavy drug use.

    On the first one, the dash is removable so you can bring it inside and serve dinner off of the custom wood buffet. On the other 2, definitely DRUGS!

    So there's nothing to do here today and I decided to look on craigslist for Mustang IIs for sale and found this mess.

    Opened craigslist again and found another one.

    I've heard of the kits to make 3rd gen corvettes into wagons. But this is the first time I've seen a Camaro given the treatment.

    1967 chevy camaro - $5000
    https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lg...835314361.html






    chevy camaro wagon
    convertion project
    no tranny 350 motor
    all glass intact
    its a clean tittle
    duplicate tittle
    and bill of sale
    its out of the dmv system
    no fees no penalties

    This is what I think they were going for.

    https://losangeles.craigslist.org/la...811621376.html



    This seems to be what both cars are trying to copy. At least this one's rear can kind of open for access.
