Gonna bet that falls in the scam category.
Betting nearly everyone that owns an LE knows exactly what they have, and that guys doesn't seem to.

Bet you get a."You buy it by putting the money in an ebay protection plan as I am out of state right now" reply.

My thoughts as well.

By the way Mike - I'll see you tomorrow mid morning if you're around to grab/load up the bulkhead and look at the roof parts if its still there.

Really? At 25 g's? I remember apaden on here was selling his clean titled LE with roughly 100k miles for 25k (eventually.. this was in 2008 and he had initially floated it at 31k). This one has 150k on it. I see similar mile 97 auto 90's in the low 20's non LE edition.

I think it's definitely legit and not even a screaming deal having probably survived new england winters.

Not saying scam based on price.
Just saying scam based on the advert.

Why does the 4th pic of the rear door open.... look like a 90 and not a 110. Where are the rear seats ( bench ) is it just me or the picture?

It's a four-door 110 - there's a row of seats between the front seats and the seats you see in the back.

Yeah I know, I see the front seats I even see the center console and I see the rear sideways bench seats.... but wear is the center row ( facing forward seats ) ?
I must be missing something in that pic.

Man, I must be going nuts.... because that pic with the rear door open, if you look at the floor from the mounting points of the front seats to that rear door looks way to short to be a 110!

Look at the picture again.

The base of the center console is higher than the base of the forward-facing seats you see...this means that the center console is further away than the seats...hence the forward-facing seats you see are actually the rear seats. Looks like they replaced the bench with captains chairs, with a center row to access the back.
