His add is a crock, and I'm glad I don't have the funds to worry about dealing with him. It's probably worth that, and I've always liked the factory panels but nothing rare at all. Even now that most are scrap. 
But , he "knows what he has"angry

I was pretty sure the "Cruiser" didn't come out until '77.  Did I miss something?

They sold for less than $3,500 new.

I usually check the St. Augustine CL, somehow I missed this.

In today's market, I suppose this could be worth $3,500 to someone.  HOWEVER, when I see a car that looks trashed/thrashed on the inside, my first thought is: bet this is just a good sized speed bump from falling apart.

Red flags?

No really good views of the front or back of the car, and I know it sounds a bit snobbish, but if you don't know the difference between HEARST and HURST, you ain't a decent car guy.

This would have been 1000 times cooler looking if the " regular " station wagon/grocery getter look had been retained.  Dump the " fake " panelvan look, sell the wheels and find some old steelies and get some innocuous hubcaps, then maybe.  Otherwise, the only buyers for this are car knowledge poor, high school kids.

I did not look close at the ad since the writer is a joke, and because I couldn't afford it it it was perfect, and 3500!

But even at a glance, it looked like a poorly done homemade panel, not the factory ones. 
I don't remember years/models on them; although I've always been a wagon guy, and 2 door panels were the bees knees for me, it would have HAD to have a v8! And that swap was beyond my finances in the early days (as well as now) and when I could afford it, I was into other stuff more.

It is an interesting concept, but the execution is less interesting. I really like pinto wagons, and back in the day I really wanted to put a turbo coupe motor in one.  If you are going to the cruiser, you really need to do the graphics as well.

A general complaint about Craigslist ads...I wish the sellers would stand back and at least take one picture of the entire car, to go with all the others that were taken from five feet away.
