Enjoy's searching out 71-73 history

So the guy has original drivetrain,  but sold separate. A$$hole!!?

With ya on that
That is odd to offer the numbers matching engine and transmission as a separate buy. Not numbers matching kills the value.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
Just going to speculate that by "numbers matching" he means correct casting numbers, not specifically the original engine with VIN stamps.

Being from Illinois, you can bet that everything below the door handles needs replaced or repaired. $9.5K is a lot to spend for a VIN number that can never have matching number engine and transmission.

From that first pic you can see it is quite a powerful car. Look at that wheelstand! But wait, the wheels are still on the ground... lol

What your seeing is a Boss 351 Trap! Buy the unrestored car between $10K - $15K. Then to get matching #'s (or dates) motor / trans with a questionable build, pay whatever. Kind of like that other auction I linked the other day for a "List" of NOS parts he may or may not have you might or might not need... Shootself
Based on the add... clearly, you want to put together a deal for all the components relating to this car including the “matching number’s” engine and transmission. It may not be a bad overall price, of course, dependent upon the amount of body work required on the shell... If I were in the market, simply ask him to send me clear photos of the stamped VIN’s on the engine and trans and then go from there. However, still some big $$$ to be put out trying to find some of the other gold mine pieces for this car...

Update... It seems that reading posts on another site, it is not the original #’s matching engine. Deal breaker for me...
