Crikey! nice price....

It's basically a RoW spec 110 with "African" side windows (which are truck cab rear sliding windows)

Putting that VIN into microcat brings up all the build data... built 11/12/2001, with an R380 manual and hard top. non EGR (so it's a RoW engine), no alarm,vinyl seats, speedo in KPH and a whopping 65amp alternator, to name a few things!

This was covered a few months back here:

Apparently, the previous ebay offering didn't net him enough dough. Just looking for a sucker, once again.

Actually, he cropped the original photo with the clutch pedal. I say one of us ask again "whyfor art thou clutch pedal on automatic illegal?"

It's funny how the house and the truck are for sale... probably trying to make up his loss in the FL housing market with a huge profit on the truck.

That house is not the owners (if it is who me thinks it is) they use nice houses as a back drop for the cars. Suggest staying away (if it is who I think it is).

i think the price more than suggests staying away all by itself. but like they say, it only takes one moron with too much money. these days there are fewer and fewer of those. on the plus side this guy makes copley/ecr seem like the bargain basement bin.
