I wish I could provide this thing with the love that it needs.



LOL, I think the dude forgot to put a decimal place in that ad. More like $180 for that piece of doo doo.

Here is one in Dayton that actually looks pretty decent for a fair price. Probably has rust as all 635s do in Ohio. $1300 is the asking

I bet you could talk him down to at least $1250 since that is the price written on the windshield LOL.

It probably didn't roll over, I bet its just broken or the cluster was swapped out when the original one broke. No way it has 25k on it though.

Yeah, I know, that was supposed to be a joke. I love when you read the description and they say the odometer just stopped working a few months ago so it probably only has a couple of thousand more miles on it.....YEAH RIGHT.

My other favorites are:

Does not run because it needs a new head gasket. Really?

Timing chain broke, don't have time to replace it. Yeah, and you don't have the money to have the head completely rebuilt either.

Southern car most of its life. Get that one in Ohio once in awhile.

Has performance chip: READ: I ran the crap out of this car.

Previous owner had engine rebuilt (insert small number here) miles ago. Err, do you have any documentation?

The all time best is when they list all the things they have done in the last two years, list the really high amount they spent, then list the car for half that value. I am sure 1 out of 10 of those types of listing are legit.

This one is interesting but why would you be stupid enough to admit you can't afford to own it?

Thanks for the offer but I'm not interested in a guy who lies about his car he's trying to sell

How about this one I saw it listed for 1500 a few months ago wonder why the price went up fenders are pretty easy swap I think.

I like this one too

Hell no to the first one, the pictures are tiny and the guy sounds like a moron. and as for the second one, I can promise that it'll need a complete overhaul of the bushings, coolant system, full tune up, ect. and the guy has it parked on the grass
I like the first one, I think the price is a tad steep though. the second one, i would want to see dyno sheets with the VIN# proving it. and that thing has way too damn many gauges up in that ish.

The descriptions did say rolling chassis. I take that to mean the engine and tranny are out of the car but still has them. I am sure he will tell you everything worked BEFORE he removed them.

It appears to be in good nick. You should ask for any records about the car.
