This classic 1957 Ford I purchased from Daniel Schmitt & co. was advertised as "stunning, beautifully restored, ready to be shown or driven, for the most astute collector" Since I live many hundreds of miles from dealer and could not leave the business I own and operate I used a appraiser in their area, evidently he did not know his job .
This car"s front suspension was totally shot and the brakes were worn out, it was all over the road ! Making this an extremely dangerous ride.
It was advertised as having a rare factory air conditioner but in fact it is just a add-on.During the appraisal it was found not working so Joe the salesman said he would have it repaired. I called to make sure it was repaired and Joe the salesman said it was "Blowing cold" thats funny how it could it as the compressor is burned out.
For a show car and recently restored it sure has an amateur paint job, seat covers put over broken down frames, wiring under dash is burnt, rocker panels full of bondo (Joe told me it was a rust free California car ). Also numerous other problems that a recently restored auto should of had done.I have so far put over four thousand in parts alone not including time and labor to make this car drivable and still have body work and paint yet to do to make it what it was advertised to be.Beware of this dealership as they falsely represent their autos and lie.
