Well, that might actually mean.
"Stoopid lift can be removed and reverted to normal actually driveable car. And be sold along with wheels to recover cost of car. Wheels good on 1930 locomotive restorations"
Well, that is how I read it anyway.

Sorry for the typo, I meant "stooopid", that is so bad it deserves 3-"o"s.
