Question about this 67 Lemans

I found a craigslist ad without picture advertising a 67 LeMans for $6500 with rims and $5500 without. I emailed the person and asked him to send me some pictures. He sent me some pictures and stated that he wanted $9000 with rims and $7000 without. I'm not a big fan of the rims so I ask him to sale it to me for the price he was asking for on craigslist, he counter back with 6k. I got to thinking and this car seems to good to be true. The car looks like it's in great condition. Is this a normal price for this vehicle or should I follow my gut?

Go check it out if it is local. $6k woudl be a great price if it is as good as it looks in the picture. Those wheels are horrendous.

It doesn't have nitrous. It has cubic inches.

It's 6 hours away. I don't like the rims either.

I would say for 6K this car is a scam. If you go to look at it take a friend and a .45.

I'm with Alky. It could be they are using the car as bait to lure you to them so that they can rob/kill you. The rims scream "Ghetto Thug" and are indicative of lower functioning folks. With some Cragars or Rally ones, that car would be a knockout. The paint is worth more than the asking price. I think it's a hustle.

I was thinking the same thing. It just didn't seem right.

Plus there's no guarantee that photo is of the car they're trying to sell. For that matter, there's no guarantee they have a car at all.

6K without the ghetto cruisers is not all that far off for a Lemans post car around here. The market is down right now across the board.

I paid $2500 for a running '66 Tri power GTO (without the original engine), a '67 Lemans parts car, a '69 Tempest 2 door, a rough'65 Tempest convertible, a '65 GTO body shell for $2500, so deals are still out there.

I say bring a friend and a piece, and don't carry the cash on you.
