IS VIN # 242176120037 Authentic For '66 GTO

Please confirm VIN # 242176120037 as being genuine for car that is stated as '66 GTO Project Car. EBAY listed as having 100,000 miles but picture shows no engine, no transmission.
Understanding and recognizing the real from other claims is what I am looking to educate myself in.
Thanks for all information on this subject.

There should be the letter P,K,Z,B,G,A, or R between the 6 and the 1 to designate which assembly plant it was made in.

I've never noticed a possible mistake on UltimateGTO for 66, I don't think 66 GTOs were built in Arlington or Atlanta. Their data plate information doesn't include those plants,
