To follow all this up, and in your defense. I helped a friend remove a '57 BelAir Convertible from the woods once. It had leaves, soil, tree parts, etc.. up to the beltline. The floor was totally gone. The frame was rotted away except for the (thicker metal) X member. The roof bows were there, as well as the stainless around the windshield... My friend got the car for free to haul it away. He sold the thing (as is) for $2k... a few weeks later, that buyer sold the car for 15K... I'm sure NOW the car is a *restored 100K+ '57 Convertible (black with red interior). I am certain that at least half of the 'Restored '57 Chevy convertibles came from similar backgrounds. The standard method of *restoring* such a car is to find a decent 2-dr HT car, and *convert* it to a convertible using the special convertible parts. Lots of them are also done using 4-dr sedans which are cheaper and usually in better condition.... Is this wrong? I don't know. but I do know it is WRONG to misrepresent something you are selling for greater financial gain. It would seem that is what the owner/restorer did in this case... I doubt after the hulabaloo which will result, that BJ will *rerun* this particular part of that auction!
