I think that price is more shocking than the interior!

Lotta wishful thinking on the sellers part.

HA! That's terrible!

Why go through all that effort to leave the cigarette lighter, radio, and HVAC controls the factory colors?

Edit: The exterior really isn't too bad after looking at the eBay ad, but that interior....

He wanted it to match his trusty flashlight in the glove pocket area.
Hey a bonus is he didnt have to mask anything off.


Wont look so impressive when that paint starts flaking off.

To each their own....but ewwwww to me. Thats going to be a mess when it starts flaking off things like the shifter boot in chunks. To most people, thats a $4K car at most if it runs great.

Looked at a Camaro once that was "freshly painted, inside and out"...best part was that it was painted with a paintbrush...inside and out...

I like it! Providing it was done with the propper prep and paint...it certainly is a unique interior! Not a fan of the matt on gloss exterior though.

Yikes! This looks like what you get when you don't want to disassemble anything - like removing switches, bezels and vents etc.
So now, none of the switches will have any markings either.

I am surprised - I actually like it. Would never do anything like it to mine. Reminds me of a 64 Impala with black exterior - red interior. Come to think of it lots of performance cars of that era were black with red. Perhaps it's an age thing. It sure will be a mess when it starts to wear.

YUCK! Maybe he had the car dipped!
It reminds me of the cheesy snap together models I used to build when I was a little kid and just put it together without painting anything so everything was the same color.

If the exterior wasn't red also it may actually look pretty good. I'm a bit partial to white Corvettes with the red interior, and that's kind of the line I'm thinking of - maybe if the car were white and the interior red.

It'd still look awful. The Corvette and many other cars look good with red interiors, because everything is not covered in red spray paint. The plastics are molded red (if any of them are red) from the factory. The carpet is red from the factory. The seats are red from the factory. And there are enough things that aren't red, to break up the color. Like the 84 Indy having a mix of red, white, and grey.

GM prototype convertible had red interior (but NOT everything was spray-bombed).

That one is indeed quite nice, and not overdone, unlike the eBay ad.

The Corvettes, GTO, S-2000, Integra and Civic Type-R, Porsches, and several other OEM cars have had quite nice red based interiors over the years too.

Makes me think of a 1:1 scale Fiero plastic model. All the parts are one color, and they didn't paint the interior at all...

A grand for the car and 14 for all the paint used to spray the interior.

It does say in the description 'beautiful' so I guess it is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
And I'm not sure the painting everything inside red counts as a 'complete interior restoration' either!

------------------
Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

One of my C4 Corvettes was pearl white with red seats, carpet and door panels. I even added red racing stripes. It was a little brite, but I thought it looked good. There was plenty of black trim to tone it down though. I couldnt stand driving it with everything end to end being red. Since he didnt tape anything off I can see, Ill go out on a limb and say he did very little prep...wiped off with a damp rag.

It could use a little black to match the exterior better, but I don't see what all complaints are with red? If the interior was completely black as are a lot of cars are or all boring-grey as most new cars, no one would have a problem. I think his main problem is that it's an early none-fastback GT, and an automatic. And where are the engine photos? IMO, $15k is way to high.

Not sure what. Even the flashlight (?) in the map pocket is the SAME red.

I was thinking the same thing. It very well might be part of the "decor" now.

What I"m wondering, though, is how long that ignition lock cylinder is going to work (assuming it still does)? Not to mention, I'm sure anybody that actually drove that car as-is, could easily be caught "red-handed".
