Living up north all my life where they put salt on the road, when I see repainted, that whispers rust and bondo. The wood definitely needs replacing. Not worth near that unless they have really really good documentation.

For 22k miles, that steering wheel is trashed. And they don’t show the front seats. I smell a rat...

A bit of each???

1. Owner lives in MASS. in summer. Car based in FLA. Winters there. Beneficial to register in mass. the $'s thing...

2. Description shows an 8 cylinder car, which it clearly is not.

3. Low miles, even if true are not fully indicative. The age thing. That and plus the new
paint. FLa sun takes a toll as well!!!

Will it sell? Possibly ! but not at 22 grand!!!!

Perhaps that is a family ploy!! "Gee, I tried?!!?

You're thinking great thoughts, but my neighbor lives in FL during the winter and registers the car there. The $ thing works exactly opposite. No one in their right mind would register a car in MA if you had another choice. Mass. = High taxes + High insurance + Byzantine Registration Rules. Florida = much cheaper.
