Your friend did a nice job cleaning this car up.  I remember it on Craigslist out of Powell Butte, Oregon last fall.  It was so dirty that you really couldn't determine the condition of the paint or even if it was rust-free.  The only items that detract from what I see are the custom door panels, overspray under the hood, and missing chrome overlays on the side grilles getting really picky.  I do know there are typical cracks in the dash under the mat from the original Craigslist listing as well.  The upholstery looks a bit off to me as well for a '72.  The car has some history in Alaska as well based on the plates in the pictures when listed in Oregon.  Your friend is passing it along at a really fair price as well.  Unless he stole it for much less than the asking price, he appears just to be asking to be compensated for his own effort and expenses in retrieving it and bringing it to the current state.  Here are some pics from the Oregon Craigslist listing last October:

So the seller in Oregon deserves some of the credit as well for cleaning up the car.  Pity they didn't put that effort in before originally listing it on Craigslist so potential buyers had a better idea of the condition.  Of course that benefited your friend in being the buyer, but for whatever reason he didn't keep it long before passing it along.  I see that he deleted the Craigslist ad so apparently he was able to sell it quickly.  Not too surprising for a sharp looking roundie (other than door panels) for under $15K.
