Below you will find a link to a 1953 Corvette on e-bay. The person from New Palestine, Indiana claims it is Vin # 98 and this e-bay posting is from the same guy who claimed to have the original 1953 Corvette # 29 that know one knew anything about till last January when the real 1953 Corvette Vin # 29 showed up and was on display in FL. at the NCRS Winter Meet. You be the JUDGE.

"THIS CAR WILL BE SOLD, THIS ISN"T A LISTING TO SEE WHAT THE VALUE IS, I'M GETTING OUT OF THE HOBBY AND SELLING OFF SOME OF THE ACCUMULATION I HAVE."

Gee, why on earth would he be getting out of the hobby? :boogie

If he were getting out of the hobby he would be selling "all" his collection.
Unless he is going to drive some as daily drivers.
It would be like saying I am getting out of the stamp collection - and then sell some not all.

Come to find out he is still buying parts etc. under a different sign on name. He is not getting out, he is looking to rip someone off.

He pulled the car off of e-bay just hours before the time was up. That is what he is, just a fake. He sure had some of the people on a different Corvette site fooled. The guy is full of BS, good person to stay clear of.

Dear acar97,

No, but the car is now sold, it is not wise to post vin tags

So, lessee if I got this right: yes, but no, but the car is sold, but it was removed before the listing expired. :W


BTW, that other forum has had enough of this already (again!).

He said he got $140K for it from a guy in PA. somewhere. What do you think? A 53 vette selling from a guy who got caught trying to say he owned 1953 Corvette # 029 and when he got caught he never answers anyones questions and never gets back on the other Vette Forum site. Now he unemployeed, cut off his cell and house phones. Now do you think he really sold it with NO ENGINE plus other things wrong with it for $140K, do you?:boogie:boogie:boogie

Well, howzabout that! I did get two replies to my question:

I strongly suspect that any chance you had of a real answer from him was eliminated the moment you posted on both forums that you had sent a question. Did you really think he wasn't monitoring both forums? You don't need an account to look...

Just a thought. Sometimes its better to get the info BEFORE posting about it!

Sorry Bill but you have zero future in undercover work! :D

If he is in fact the same guy, not to worry - he'll be back. :w

He is the same guy that said he owned # 029 - 1953 Corvette and all he had was a Vin tag that he made and no car and the Vin tag was not all that good. Anyone who know what a 53 Vin tag really looks like could tell that it was a FAKE.
