He has it starting at $50,000, smart. Two VIN #'* ?

Personally I would like to call that car, a once wrecked Firebird with a new front end and a "Corvette" motor.

This is the STAGE 1 TA that came with the Corvette engine from the factory!
Um.... unlikely....


Quote:
Plus you will own one of a kind TRANS AM! It came with two Vin numbers! One under the hood and one on the dash? Both different! Does anyone know why and how that is? Here are both VIN numbers.. DASH# 1G2FS87H1FL632323 UNDER HOOD# 1G2FW2185HL221164
Um... the 2 VIN #* should be a clue that it was once two completely different cars and parts from one were used on another.


Quote:
Let me know if you do? I don't have a clue the history on this car!
It'* obvious that you don't have a clue.... how come you state it came from the factory with the Stage 1 if you just said you don't know the history.

Someone needs to do a frame up on it, and take it to BARRETT JACKSON...
Barrett Jackson will just laugh at you..... just like any other collector would.

Don't know about back in the 80'*, but as for the "built in Canada" comment, it'* because the Camaro/Firebird is built in St. Therese, Quebec
