This was on Craigslist in the Fresno area for a while. I think they wanted $28,000 so I suspect the reserve will be high. Nice car though!shane

Apparently reserve has been met and its now a little over 19K...Seems like a very nice Big Block GT/CS in a nice color.

The way the price shot up so early makes me wonder where it will potentially end. I agree, nice big block, great color combo and someone will be lucky to have it..shane

Love the X code. very clean. Current economy seems to have brought it to a better price point. Not a fan of the white top on blue body. Or the wire hubcaps.

X code seems like it should have a more aggressive type color. And some Shelby wheels

No power steering and it has drum brakes, most likely special ordered.
Wish they would have posted the Marti report.

Ok, this really bugs me.

Take a look at the paint line at the VIN cutout on the fender, and it looks like there may be paint on the opposite side hood bumper.

If you look at the steering wheel, it looks as if the horn ring is missing.

It's also interesting how the posting states that it's a one-owner car, but things like the California Special / Shelby parts and trim "look to be orginial".

That said, it does seems that there are lots of historical bits that come along with the car, will be nice for whoever ends up buying it. Just wouldn't do so without a very solid in-person look.

Reading the Ebay feedback for arnaj01, my guess is he is / considers himself a "dealer". All posted feed back relates to vehicle sales or purchases. As a "dealer" perhaps his ownership does not count. just a thought.

Got a note back from the seller. Not sure if he is a dealer or not, but he purchased the car in Nov '10 from the original owner and currently has it under open title.

Seems like I see a lot of cars where the "dealer" doesn't consider themselves an "owner." They have a dealer license so it's legal for them to sell the car with an open title.

Personally I think thats a fair price for what they are. I wouldn't sell mine for less than 45,000
