Flemings Ultimate Garage Classic Muscle car was grossly misrepresented. Rockville, Maryland
*Author of original report: More information
In February of 2012 I purchased a 1969 Olds 442 from Flemings Ultimate garage.
It was sold as....
"Just completed (Sep 2011), no expense spared restoration w/ all new sheet metal (fenders, quarters and floors), matching #s Olds 400cid V-8 @ 290hp, original Muncie 4-speed trans w/ factory Hurst shifter + new clutch, original Olds HD 3.73 Posi-Traction rear diff, new mirror finish Saffron yellow paint w/ black stripes, brand new black bucket seat interior w/ factory console, rally dash w/ full gauges &Tic Toc tach, brand new great sounding dual exhaust, fast ratio power steering, power disc brakes, all new chrome & stainless trim, correct Super Stock wheels w/ fresh BFG radial T/As, show detailed engine compartment
This car has been driven less than 200 miles. Is garaged 24/7.
The brand new quarters and fenders are rusting and full of bondo. The body is absorbing pain showing the ORIGINAL color of the car which is GREEN not the yellow they claimed. The car has areas that are rusting through. The paint is cracking. Has dried paint drips through out the lower car.
The brakes lock up. The brand new rear end is not brand new and is fact shot. The exhaust knocks and the water pump is shot.
This car was sold as a drivable show able car. It is none of the above. The owner has conatacted Flemings to try and resolve this matter but only to be told that the warranty bragged about on all cars sold by Flemings is non exisitant and they have been not lived up to their claims of making customers happy with their purchase.
Pictures of the car can been seen here.
