Not like those seatcovers, of course.
Did you see the undercarriage pics? Rattlecan undercoating from Autozone, 20min before the pics were taken (look at the tiger stripes and how dirt free the undercoat is), and only sprayed within camera field of view. The ad states "The underside has no rust, has light undercoating protection, and the seams are all rust-free as well.” It might be rust free, I'd ask "So why did you hit it with rattle can 20 minutes before you took pics?"
Then the famous craig's list "the air conditioning belt has been detached for a while, and the seller makes no guarantee that it works, though they state it did when the belt was removed..." any mechanic who's bought and sold a few cars knows what that's about
: The compressor froze up while in use, working great, until it didn't, the AC pulley stopped dead in it's tracks and melted the belt, and it fell off. The owner heard a noise, investigated, removed the tossed belt from the engine bay and continued on his journey. The ad allows the reader to assume 'heck, maybe it just needs a belt'.
I don't begrudge a 'flipper' (ad states the owner has owned 11 VW campers in the past), from trying to make a buck. A lot of my commentary is conjecture, but I've inspected more than a few cars, and have "seen a thing or two..." $20 Pep Boys seat covers and undercoating are a telltale sign of a gilded lilly by a lazy flipper. I would not believe 55k original miles either, I could be wrong, it's pretty easy to spot low mileage BS in person, if you know what to look for (brake and clutch pedal corner wear, steering box slop, shifter bushing slop, several other things that wear from use, regardless of age in years).
Anyhow, all in good fun, and entertainment.
