Car dealers are just that. People in business to SELL you a car. Ads are FULL of hype targeted towards getting you to buy their car. OFTEN they use the "owner supplied information" scape goat to cover themselves. Simple things used to "spot" hype are "fully restored" OK WHEN" By WHOM? If the dealer doesn't know this it is EASY to see they don't know the car. "Most" ( IMHO) restored cars have near perfect panel alignment and gaps since these are easily seen. Under car and under hood are where the least attention is paid. Owners send cars to dealers to (IMHO again) 1- try to get "big bucks" for their car 2 - not "personally sell" a car (paperwork and haggling , lack of ability to advertise ,etc) 3 - DUMP cars that are "questionable" . I have looked at MANY hyped ads from Gateway ( and others too). I find the ads to be full of incorrect information and the prices inflates significantly over "market prices".
"I" would never buy from them or use them to sell one of my cars.
