GT/CS on ebay... clone?

Location: Lexington, Massachusetts

GT/CS 3-spd manual on ebay with buy-it-now $16.5K but...
... no hood locks, no Marti mentioned, so could this be a clone?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang...m=172139939443

I sorta like the red with the gold stripes combo...

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

If anyone has a serious interest about this vehicle, I'll check it out. To me she looks a little rusty etc, and I don't understand why there are no pics of the car' s underside.
From the description and lack of VIN#, I'm not sure it's the real deal.

I have touched base with the owner. And although he is adamant about not giving out the VIN, "I will only give the vin to the buyer." He has forwarded the Marti with the VIN redacted.

Here is what he has forwared: Why hide the VIN when Marti breaks it down? oh well...
BTW he is a forum member as well and the vehicle is in the Registry.

The Marti Report does list the California Special option.

a little worried

I was worried because it doesn't exactly look like my dads (he bought one new for something like $2800) it was some sort of green with green interior!
it had a interior alittle more like the other one relisted on eBay, but that ones way more $

It would be marginal for me: rust bubbles on RR quarter, no P/S, P/B, A/C.
I wonder why the trunk color is different from the body color. A color change in its past?
I wonder why the interior color is different from original. Interior swapped?
I'd want to see a photo of the VIN tag & inner fender stamping to verify its the same car as the Marti Report.
I think I just talked myself out of bidding on this car.
(But I'm an old fuddy-duddy)

The original configuration would have been the Red body color on the inside of the rear fenders.
The trunk drop offs (currently beige) would have been body color (Red).
The black you're referring to: insulation on the trunk floor (not original configuration).
The black on the inside of the rear fenders is sound deadening goop, as applied at the factory.

johnny5:

See my edited post re: the beige color.
IF I were to buy it with the lack of options, and the VIN checked out OK, and rust repair/paint work, $8K tops. But that's just me & my requirements.
Body work & paint (which I don't do myself)=$8K cost.
