Found this on ebay the other day and thought I'd share. Anyone know the history on this car?

Probably a nice car with many inaccuracies in its restoration. The front fenders' eyebrow shape makes this car unmistakable. Seems to come up here quite often, might take a look through some older threads for a breakdown of general thoughts on it.

It's a bad car, I looked at it in person. I posted a more complete review on the other thread here on the site, but to sum up quickly: Lower eyebrow droop full of bondo on both sides, too bright of White color, paint overspray on the passenger fender like someone was painting model cars nearby. Stainless dinged and tweaked throughout. Bondo and mud coating the trunk floor and extensions implying heavy repairs or a coverup of rust/damage, exhaust is like 1.75" diameter pep boys crush bends, interior is kinda smelly like the car sat in a dank warehouse for years, decent chrome, so overall a pretty decent #3 condition example. Was never a frame off restoration, and has floated around various auctions and dealers before winding up in Venice FL. Probably could be a good driver, but would need to be at about half the asking price.
