[DML] Re: 2001 Rebuild "fast" Delo on eBay

Doesn't Houston, in its refurbs, replace broken and worn items from
old factory stocks?

They certainly don't do a frame-up restoration, but I'd imagine
obviously broken door internals, cracked window glass, worn suspension
components, weatherstripping & headliners, etc are replaced. A
purchaser certainly isn't going to pay Houston's premium for a car
with such obvious flaws.

Whether those items, and a warranty, are worth that premium is another
argument altogether.
