Why hasn't this car sold?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/198...p2055119.m1438.l2649

Seems like the price is right.

The headliner, non stock sunroof, ebrake not hooked up, two different type wheels in pics can cause confusion, I think gloss black mirrors would be repainted, bent front plate holder, says a few minor scuffs and scratches, sold by a dealer.

Aftermarket sunroof
Headliner needs replaced
No power mirrors
No map pockets
Horrific aftermarket wheels, original wheels in some shots?
Engine is filthy
Front badge from an 84
Why is the front plate holder falling off?
Stereo from an 86+ with Performance Sound, described in listing as 'factory'
Parking brake doesn't work, what else is neglected?
Wheelwell liners missing
Mis-matched tires on the 14's
No pics of the underside, front trunk, trunk corners under carpet? This is common knowledge now
Rare model, but not a desirable model (fastback GT, Formula, 88)
Original paint (white hides flaws really well, but you can see them)

$3500 tops

You guys are good. Missed the photo of the interior view of the sunroof.

It probably is a repaint judging by the closeups of the sunroof gasket and the front corner. But it's really a pretty good repaint. The dash is all good and straight with no cracks and the side vents aren't cracked on the corners. Console isn't buckled. Headliner and front license plate holder could probably be easily fixed. Steering wheel is in great shape. Oil pressure gauge hand has fallen off. In the final picture with the gold wheels, it appears that the right rear wheel well liner has been replaced and the quarter trim tab has been tucked back inside the liner. The radio was available in 85 and didn't require premium sound. My first 85 had that radio without premium sound. When the volume buttons went bad on it, I found another in an 85 at the pullapart yard. The 85 owner's manual showed the radio as an option. There's no location given except they're based in the US. Could be a northern car being the reason for the condition of the engine. Found the location to be in Warren, Michigan. A cellular phone number.

If you scroll down to the second picture with the old wheels, it's a shot of the right rear wheel. You can see the fender well liner is missing. Could have been the result of a blowout. You can also see the tab for the quarter molding is extended, indicating that the whole liner is probably missing. It usually tucks behind the front of the liner.

Ah ok, yeah maybe they blew out a stock tire and then went to new wheels and tires.
