EBAY - Acapulco Blue in registry?

Location: August ME

I did not find the VIN in the registry

VIN: 8R01C145523

EBAY comments: "The car has documentation of a Deluxe Marti Report showing that it is GT/CS and is the original color and options."
Marti not shown in the ad but the owner does have a copy.

"Reserve" generally means that only the seller knows the minimum acceptable price. You can contact the seller thru the e-bay process "ask the seller a question" to see if you can gain any additional info.

I have the car at home now, have had it for 3 weeks. A few things wrong that were not on the $300 inspection ( wouldn't recomend this person or company to do a 150 point inspection too many things they missed) Still a good buy for the buck Cant believe what rear seat belts are worth Had to have them to get safety in Canada one of the things he missed

Are you saying that the car didn't have rear lap belts? What else are you going to have to address that was "overlooked" in inspection?
Are you peased overall with condition of car?

Body chrome paint very good all new front end steering and tires, Motor runs good tranny looks like a rebuild, Under hood a picture but the small stuff takes the shine off it But for price not bad although the floor is soft and will need serious work THING MISSED IN THE INSPECTION .
1 radio not working (job in progress)
2 Drivers window has been sand blasted 1/2 way up up to top (does anyone
know a compound to polish glass have been using body compound, but
still needs work to be good)
3 Most of the windows are very stiff to move up and down ( passenger
rear 1/4 was so stiff it had to taken apart to free up. done)
4 Gap between passenger window and rear 1/4 is so wide you can see
Day light between the two
5 Drivers rear view mirror is loose and frozen ,not moving (maybe will have
to replace it
6 Handbrake leaver was frozen ( some mussel and penetrating oil did the
trick)
7 Passenger side hood corner close to windshield was up 3/4 in had to slot
hinges to bring it down (now Ok)
