    it depends

    sometimes the seller will see the trailer & think "this guy is not going home empty handed"

    sometimes the buyer has the upper hand....as in "I can get it out of here TODAY"

    I usually don't show up with the trailer, but if I do buy something will immediately go home & get it, picking up the car the same day

    Body to me looks tweaked. panel gaps are awful. tops I would only pay 500 dollars for this one. I have seen some of these where I live folks will try and play off the tv shows that the car no matter what shape it is in is valuable. but at the end of the day what is this going to cost you to make it a reasonable driver? My opinion not worth it.

    If you look again there is an excessive gap on the top drivers side door. tell sign of a tweaked body

    Its the hinge not the door or body. He will see soon enough which it is upon arrival. Front and rear glass is fitting well.. .

    I wasn't able to make it today but will check it out tomorrow. I do think the one side is the door hinges but will see once I get there.

    Well, that was a bust. Although the body was straight, the floors and truck were all rotted. Hell, I could actually see the subframe bolt hole on the passenger side floor board. Motor was good, but the floors were just too far gone.
