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
& trunk"

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.

Flemings YouTube of the same car

Above is the links to Flemings youtube ad for this car. With his claims of the restoration level.

Notice how he doesn't show the underside of the car. It looks beautiful from the top down. Also he does not open the doors on camera.. Believe me there is a reason for that.

We give him credit the inside is nicely done.

The valve covers on the engine are installed BACKWARDS.

Upon receiving the car the shipper had noted damage to the car. First real drive the owner noticed a crack noise in the front end when turning slowly. (brakes were locking up) Also when you go over a bump the exhaust slams against the bottom of the car. The rear end is toast yet suppose to be brand new. The issues appear mechanically after driving approx 20 minutes.

We will be providing videos showing the mechanical issues with this car next.

Below is the link to the orginal ad for the car and Flemings claims also.
