Saleen S351 Speedster - "Good" Condition
Posted 05 August 2015 - 09:59 PM
Came in the mail today, he did a great job of packing (no sarcasm there) but I find major, very deep scuffs in several areas, found a fully intact spider web in the engine bay, found that the passenger door panel was loose and as a result the mirror fell out.
Not a big deal though, I'm not a super picky guy and I got it for a good price. I went about cleaning it up and then saw two strange round holes beside the seats... then it hit me why it looked odd to me, there is supposed to be a roll bar on this car and it's missing!
I've sent the seller a message and asked if he has the part maybe laying around somewhere so that I can at least repair it... I imagine the answer will be "no" though. Considering filing for a return even though I hate to do that to somebody, especially since I got what I think was a good deal on the car (of course that is assuming that it is complete!). I don't think his intentions were bad, I just think he overlooked quite a bit. This isn't a dealer, it's just a guy selling some of his stuff.
What do you think, am I being unreasonable?

As bad as it'll sound, you may just have to swallow this one if he won't let you return it.

I suspect our definition of 'good condition' as collectors is very different to that held by the regular joe on the street.

I think I saw where he finally sold that one in another listing, I sent him a message anyways though... thanks!

The spider web in the engine bay is something, though

Yes I think it is, I found plenty of other sold listings with the same affliction.
On another note I saw another listing tonight that said "Excellent condition, only missing both mirrors!"
