    No way on the milage. Pitting on dash components
    Wrong door pulls/armrests.
    Missing the door emblems, escutcheons for radio knobs, accessory/top switch, steering wheel and gauges in the console, trunk Skylark emblem.

    I can't tell about the front signal lenses, look awful dark.

    But, all of that is minor.

    The VIN plate may have been removed for paint.

    Overall, it looks good, but would want to do some rust hunting with flashlight and a mirror.

    Too bad there are no trunk and engine/bay pics and the cowl tag.

    I will guarantee you from looking at the pictures there is allot of bad bodywork and it's a 20 foot paint job.

    They probably should have ran with new chevelle interior panels. What they did looks hideous.

    Those screws wouldn’t pass an out of state vehicle inspection around here. I once saw the Highway Patrol impound a car because the rivets were incorrect and the guy couldn’t tell them why.

    Looks like a GS grille.

    Definitely amateur body work. Grill is broken. The price it's at now is more then it's worth. The 4 speed is the only thing supporting the price.

    Also, If they don't know the size of the engine (listed as 355 CI), how would they know it is rebuilt. We all know 355 is the TQ figure of the 65 300 engine.
