All GTOs have PHS doc unique to the vin number on each car. If the doc you received is "exactly" the same as the sample, it's not the proper doc for that car. I see the seller has a "0" rating.. Red Flags.... Ask him for the vin number and you can have PHS fax the docs to you and verify if it's a GTO or not and what options it's supposed to have...

The seller should also post a pic of the Data Plate...

:agree Sounds funny to me also. Ask him for a pic of the full VIN plate on the car, and a copy of the matching PHS doc. You could also contact JIM MATTISON at PHS and see what he says. Eric

YES YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED tell him you will have your mechanic come by and check out the car and see how fast he doesnt respond- or better yet tell him you will send him a cashiers check for 10000 over the cost and he can cash the check and send you back $9000- or even smarter still stop talking to this A-hole

Never bid on a car unless you can verify all the information and the car is exactly what the seller claims it to be...:)

237 is actually a LeMans "37", "42" is GTO for the most part. However, in '65, a GTO was an option on a Lemans. So the vin would start 237. That's why you need the PHS to determine if that car came with the GTO package. Ruk was just yankin' your chain a little...:eek::)

With 0 feedback, he is scamming. He doesn't even have the car at all. He stole some pics, put the auction up. At the end of the auction he will ask to have a Western Union money order to a PO box that's under a fake name and take your money. People really do this. Run, don't walk.. Report it to ebay also. People hack peoples accounts to do this scam, this one is worse, straight up fraud.

No link BUT go to e-bay and type in #110749054831. The auction ended with 25 bids, and a SALE price of $10,200. The seller added a note saying it is a real GTO and he has proper documentation......check it out. Eric

Here's the bid history, note that 2 0 feedback guys were getting the bid up on the car. Most people don't let zero feedback people bid. The winning bidder is going to have a bad couple of weeks, I feel for him, he's screwed.

Be extra suspicious when the bid history show 2 zero feedback people bidding up an item -known as "shill bidding." It a trick scammers use to ratchet up the price.

Of course, without a 242 vin number there is no point in bidding on it (unless you want a close).
