390 Royal Maroon GTCS in Colusa

Does anyone have any info on an all original S code in Colusa CA?
Boss found and is interested in buying it.
Automatic
I am getting him to acquire a VIN soon
The guy, supposedly has been sitting on it for 25 years!
Has had one repaint
Boss thinks he wants between $50-60 tho
Good Investment?

Can he get the VIN so I can see what the registry shows?

Just a heads-up, the car doesn't seem to be all original. The tail light bezels have been replaced.
It also looks like the end caps and deck lid have been worked on, they fit too well.

I noticed the bezels as well

Why do the tires look so wide?

It looks like I found out who the owner is and if my boss doesn't buy, it may be time for a formal introduction

It looks like my boss pulled the trigger! I will get a VIN on here as soon as I can. Apparently it got parked with a bad trans. I would love to know how many GTCS were royal maroon 390 autos?

Hate to say it but this is another example where a good inspection would have been worth it. At least this story can be used to serve as a lesson to those that follow in the future.

This car was not in the registry. In less than a month we've added 7 cars.

Guess the next question (since the engine was changed) would be is it a real Calif Special?

Wonder if the seller knew how to check the VIN or the history
