Exclamation PICS:1957 Chevy Bel Air for under $3000!!! Perfect Condition..somethings wrong

So I was contacted by a friend about someone who is selling this Bel Air. The car has 3500 miles on it after restoration. I saw it advertised for 2600 in one paper and 62000 in another. Anyways I emailed the person and he said the car is for sale for $3000. I replied back asking about the newspaper saying 62000 and he replied back with a picture of the most recent edition of the paper...he changed the second posting to 3000 as well. Something just doesnt seem right. A perfect Bel Air thats runs great for that much?! I mean those cars sell for 60-80 grand, some even more! What do you guys think? Im thinking its stolen or something. He says he has the papers, it has a clean title and has all the work history on it. Im going to check it out, get the vin etc....If everything checks out Im going to jump on it! Here are pics he sent me
HE also stated he would want all transactions to go through the dealership he is affiliated with. Makes me feel safer.. He was very professional in the email, saying thank you for your interest and telling me about the car etc.

I was thinking it was a misprint too. But when he shows me the new add and tells me what he wants for it...just makes me wonder. He also said that he would want all transactions to go through the dealership he is affiliated with.

I'd personally go for it if he's doing this through a dealer. BTW, I'd be willing to bet that this is one of those angry ex-wife situations.

I'd check it out.

I lost the chance to have a 70 Chevelle SS in near mint condition years ago that was for sale for $350.00

I saw it in a newspaper add and showed my dad. he told me to forget it as it was probably just a shell sitting in a field somewhere. so I called a friend and told him to check it out....


turns out, the guy that was selling it had a son that ran up his phone bill for around $350 and then left town (and left his car as well). the guy just wanted his money back for the phone bill.


damn thing was near mint condition and my buddy picked it up and drove it to my house that evening.

Not a chance you cant buy the chrome for this car for 3k. Be really careful. I would get the VIN # take it to the police department and have them run a check on it to see if it is stolen.

When it seem to good to be true it usually is.

It's the classic scam. Ebay, Autotrader, Craigslist.... they are full of scams like that. They say anything to make it sound like a perfect deal. At the last minute they will want to transact some money via Western Union, and then they dissapear.

You don't even want to send them emails, because they will hack/steal your email, Ebay account... They are probably communicating with you through a stolen email. Probably haven't talked by phone either?

Tell them you have someone local to the car and dealer today, and would like to see the car and talk to the dealer today. Any excuses, send all the info to the FBI. They have an internet crimes dept.

That looks like the real seller on Ebay. I think your new friend just stole the pictures from this ad.

RUN AWAY! No good will come of this. Its not real. I know tri-five chevy's. Had one before I got the Camaro. That price is so low its not even insane.
Your looking at a minimum $45K car. even a scorned wife wants to make somthing.
dealer deal or not, theres a catch.
let it go.

Coming from a tri-five guy this one sounds strange to me. However if you do want to find out more, take a couple friends with you. I have heard of things like this where they pull you in knowing you brought 3K in cash and then they jump you and take your money.

And don't feel to comfortable because they want to do the deal through the dealership. I had a friend who had a customized S-15 that was stolen, guess where they found it? Yep at a dealership, they were stripping cars and selling the parts out from the bodyshop.

The FBI has a dept/link to send internet fraud info to. I'd send them everything you have on this crook.
