Gee...the ad could have at least listed the VIN or shown the engine compartment.

Let me check your shorts!

I thought $21K might have been the opening bid, but no that's the price. It's a eBay classified ad and not even an auction. Everything looks good in the limited set of pics. Hood blackout paint looks close to being correct, but it appears to have the backwards-mounted rear spoiler which is a common error. I would expect a Boss 351 tribute car to possibly sell for more than this, with the high level of restoration that we see in the pics. Could be a base Sportsroof model with 302-2V that was restored to look like a Boss 351. But the ad implies it is a true Boss. Someone should contact this guy to see what the deal is. I'm sure the response would be a comedy of errors. He's probably not looking for potential buyers that are aware of all the details of the true car being represented.

What is it with these people? It says local pickup only, but doesn't tell you where it's located.

Uh, maybe a scam listing? The guy's feedback is from selling golf clubs. Probably had his account hijacked.

The questions are... does it really exist and is he the owner. I'm sure for some "holding fee", a few thousand he will save it for someone. Trouble is, soon after receiving it, the ad and him will be long gone!

To good to be true I’m sure. Probably just an outright scam. Even if it was a Mach 1 I’d be skeptical. I looked up the sellers info to see if maybe it was a pissed off ex wife, but it’s some guy that had sold some golf clubs? I don’t know what the deal is.

I like to contact the seller and try to set up a time I can come and drive the car. That usually sorts them out pretty quick. If it is legit - they will be happy to make arrangements. If it isn't, some of the excuses are pretty entertaining.

Yes Mike, that's the way to go about it. I did the same thing for a '70 GTO Judge listing in Hemmings a few years ago that seemed too good to be true. The price wasn't crazy low, but it was low enough that I knew no one would sell it for that price unless they were clueless. The person was always going to be out on errands, they were helping a sick older relative, all kinds of crap. They just wanted to get someone's money and they had no car. I did a Google reverse image search and the car was in someone's collection. In the meantime, Hemmings had already researched the listing on their own and they pulled it.

Ok I did a few Google reverse image searches on the eBay pics for this "Boss 351" and come up with the following match:

Everything makes sense except for that price on the eBay listing. Had to laugh because in the rear view of the car the license plate was blocked out. But in the rear three quarter view I could see the plate after zooming in- North Carolina dealer plate.

Did you let them know their photos were being used as a scam?
