Default Not My Car, but a Nice $10K 1866 Convertible

This is NOT mine, and I get no $$ for posting this, or selling it.

I have seen this car, pretty well done, 6 cylinder to V8. I would replace the shifter, but that is just me.

Started out as a coupe. Maybe a good deal but that would bother me personally.

Is it me, or in the last pic does it look like it's not painted under the boot?

Needs some work on the paint and a new convertible frame, but everything else is great.
So, um... there's like... NO top (looks like entire frame is missing in last pic). Mmmm K. Based on the pics shown, I would disagree that the car was "well done." Appears to need a total repaint to me. Price seems pretty high to me.

That car is actually in a suburb of Dallas. Big picture, the car doesn't look bad to me, but I just wasn't sure if I was just misreading the pic.

Fit and finish on this car is far from "well done". Convertible top well is all sorts of strange. The chrome molding around the well is not there. Inside quarters are supposed to be upholstered and have arm rests/ash trays. Horn on Grant steering wheel is in wrong position. Not even vacuumed before photo, debris all over floors. Paying attention to details is what qualifies as "well done" in my book. This car will be lucky to get half the asking price.

It's missing all of the convertible inner rocker structure and support. I would consider that car somewhat unsafe to drive....

Good eye, you're being nice by saying "somewhat", I'd say "completely". No doubt it is missing the other convertible structural components. I think we can close the book on this "well done" car and call it "poorly done".

... or maybe just 'poorly begun'.. it is far from 'done'.
