That thing is a soggy, wet, moldy turd

Why is the transmission dipstick still in place???

Are they running that electric motor through the C4 trans? That would be a HORRIBLE design!

I couldn't watch the whole video. It was about like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard. Did anybody notice that there were twice as many "thumbs down" as "thumbs up" on the video?
I'd give him about $100 for the whole car...delivered. At about $10/battery, a guy could about break even on scrapping it.

Seller has probably been annoyed by the world famous Fairmont tire kicker.

I want to talk some trash about this, but I wouldn't put it beyond a follower of Muskology to sell his children to buy this thing at $10,000 over asking.

Wow... just wow. I think all that rain rotted his brain as well. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that thing will be "for sale" for quite some time. Sure, it's pre-Tesla, but I'm willing to bet it accelerates more like a golf cart than any Tesla...

An old Fairmont that looks as though the conversion was a high school auto shop project for new Tesla money?
I'd imagine that this was one of twelve simply because the builder couldn't find any other buyers.
I wonder what kind of range this thing actually had?
Probably less than thirty miles and maybe less than twenty.

Well, it's not like being a slow turd is new to the Fairmont.

"Serious inquiries only"

Does the AC work?

Were suspension and brake upgrades mentioned?

Sitting outside for too long, those floors are probably toast from sitting in the dirt. You can tell someone parked it and forgot about it, I'll bet that interior stinks.

You could probably get that money out of a museum if it were restored or in perfect original shape.
