Probably as nice of a 1957 Adventurer one can get for the money. Restorations cost way more than that. From what I can tell after recently completing a partial restoration of a factory original '57 Adventurer with only 21K miles, this one is not 100% perfect but pretty darn close. I think it's well worth the price.

I've refrained from pointing out a lot of incorrect things on this car, too, because I don't like doing that, either. I don't know the car (unless someone has the VIN, perhaps), and hope both the seller and the buyer are happy with any deal they make.

I dont normally do that either things either as its up to buyers to be happy with what they got and not everyone has the skill or money to make cars perfect nor may they know . But that body work is an abomination and cant be overlooked . How could you get that so wrong . Its almost like Ben Lexcens winged Keel on the Americas cup Yacht lol !!!

Somehow I think it was done on purpose. I really can't see why, but perhaps they wanted it that way?? Definitely doesn't work for me. Just looks weird and screws up the line with the hood.
