Incorrect rear exhaust tips as they should be round and rear quarters look incorrect?

Definitely looks like a 70-72' rear clip. Wrong Exhaust tips, flared fenders and backup lights in the inside lights on the tail panel. A rear or front clip replacement usually means the car was hit as some point. This is not always true however. I am not expert so if I can see all that at first glance I am sure our forum experts can pick it apart.

Thanks very much. I noticed wrong exhaust tips, and no document pockets on passenger dash, but that's the extent of my C3 knowledge...I guess the price reflects the cobbled-together car.

How can you assume a whole rear clip for just a change in the lower rear panel from round to square (that's just a matter of skillfull cutting and adding chrome trim). Using later taillights that incorporate the backup lights and the rear wheel flares are really not that difficult to patch in. I did all this twice back in 1998. I'm not sure about how things are currently but the was a fiberglass company in Warminster, PA that sold the flare kits and the rear valance.

it's a $25,000. Car and that's not any investment!
I don't trust this ad, it's hiding too much. Throughout my life I have owned lots of cars and trucks with more than 32,000 miles and none ever came close to looking like they could use a restoration!.
I dealt with this guy, his dealership several times with guys interested in their cars and it was never pleasant.

Possibly, nothing. I also see a page full of Corvettes.

Same here, guessing they pulled the ad off the site and it redirects to a page with a ton of Corvettes. Came to that conclusion based on hovering over the link.
