1971 Lime green Boss 351 project on E bay
Judging by the other Boss in the picture I'm sure he got all the goodies needed before putting up for sale.

Ram Air, Rev Limiter, shifter, boot, etc.

Still a misleading add, maybe could have worded it something like correct but not matching numbers if that's the case.
If guys like this were truthful they would have to lower the price to make a sale.

Like P.T. Barnum supposedly said, there's a sucker born every minute (apparently it was actually a banker that came up with it). Smile

I have told this story before about a Boss 429 car locally. He got a great deal on it because it was not a numbers matching car. Engine had been changed. On the Boss 9 cars the dealer did not work on the engines. They were pulled and went to Holman & Moody. Most were lack of performance complaints, they were a dog. 
So he gets the car which looks great and is one of the first down the line. When he ordered Marti report it came back with two actually. It left the factory with a 428 installed and was switched out to the 429 by KK.
About a year after he gets the car he receives a phone call and the guy says, "I think I have your original Boss 429 for your car". He did. It still retained the magnesium valve covers that were only on the first run of prototypes. So now his car is worth more than double what he paid for it. I think he had to pay $35,000 for the original engine. So miracles do happen.
Here are some pic of the car. This guy is a tree trimmer by trade. He makes thousands per day and can never get caught up.
That Boss 351 would cost way more to fix than it would sell for. The 68 Pontiac HO 4 speed car cost $135,000 to build and car was free. He said on a good day at auction would sell for $80,000. You just cannot come out on building the cars back if done correct.
Restoring old cars is a habit and you cannot expect to make money you should actually expect to loose if you sell. Huh

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
This looks like a MUCH better deal!!
