That guy is a dealer and I find the cars he puts on eBay to have an interesting bid history. Just review how things go in a few to get a feel. I called once upon a time about a car that was of interest to me and I came away unimpressed with the used car salesmen schtik. From what I can tell he doesn’t like educated buyers.
car is rough and is worth 30-35k tops. The bondo is a red flag, but you could enjoy driving a four speed drop top like that just fine for the right money. The engine bay is downright scary.
