390 "S" code GT/CS listed on eBay ...

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=190304421967

There is a current eBay listing for a claimed "S" code 390 GT/CS up here in Vancouver, B.C., Canada (just across the "pond" from us here in Victoria). I've emailed him and asked if he has a Marti for it, plus I"ve asked if he'd be willing to give me the VIN information for comparison to our "S" code to see if it's close or not. We'll see what he answers back and I'll let you know. I have a watch on his auction just to see if it gets any play or not ... so far no bids. (Not surprising with these terrible photos and without more info being supplied on the car ...)

If you write to him again please ask him if punctuation and spelling are still taught in school. The way things are going the next generation is going to be totally illiterate!!!

VIN from this eBay GT/CS "S" code ...

After I questioned the seller about this car he posted the VIN on an edited version of the auction. He claimed to have a Marti for the car, but it was in his "storage" and he couldn't retrieve it readily, so he listed the VIN on the auction so that anyone that was interested could get a Marti done on it themselves. OK ....

8RO1S156685

This is a somewhat earlier car than our "S" code (8R01S161311), and I don't see that VIN posted on the registry. It didn't receive any bids this time around, so I wonder if he'll relist it with some better photos?

I may have passed my "best before" date, but I haven't reached my "expiry" date!

If I'm not mistaken, this is the "Elusive S code in Vancouver" from another thread. It was black with gold graphics in other pics I have seen. The VIN is the same as the black and gold car. It was up in Northern Vancouver Island last I spoke to the previous seller. It has a build date (Door data tag) as 04-15-68 which is same as mine. I was interested long ago but the detailed photos he sent me showed lots of rust. Couldn't tell if surface or deep rust so I passed. Looks like it has been cleaned up and repainted. Should have been Highland Green. Mike

I do better on autotrader.com than ebay. Load better pictures, better description, VIN number, marti report and so on.

Use spell check, this isn't a chat room, better impression if you look more professional.
Also this is in Vancouver, so many will shy away from this already.

At 15k I would bet it would sell sooner or later. Take more pics, post a Marti report and add to the description and it will sell.

And the wanting to be traded for other vehicles is VERY common on Ebay. I have sold a few cars on Ebay and got more than one offer for a trade each time. Best one was a plane (too bad I don't know how to fly) for a Ferrari I had.

Jason, I seem to remember you "flying" your Ferrari faster than most private planes...
