Yeah right, in these conditions and at these prices (with no location)- gotta be scams!

If 19K is actually the price on the Saratoga, then this is an outright steal. This car sold for over 40K at an auction 2-3 years ago. I agree, I think this listing is a scam.

This is what the chassis and interior look like.

Apparently this auction is legitimate, I contact the seller and here's the reply I received: This car is an outright steal at 19K if it's all true.

" Hi
The car is in pristine condition ,Fully restored to the highest standards, super nice!
I bought the car in 2015 and since then i drive it only in weekends just to keep the engine in good condition .Always garaged, non smoker , no pets . Excellent condition ,Looks & drives great . Very clean interior and exterior, very Well maintained. Operationally, this car is amazing , comes with owners manual, and a clean/clear title ready for transfer to new owner .Totally free rust car , without any issues or damages.
I can help or assist you with shipping to Canada . You can buy it now for $19,000.
Bellingham WA is the car location .
We complete the transaction through eBay so that you will have the buyer protection that they offer.
I can add a buy it now option on eBay then you can complete the purchase on your end.
For payment I accept Bank to Bank Wire Transfer .
So if you agree with the price , shipping and payment please send your phone number also to talk about all the details".

This has got to be a scam. Seller has 92 seller feedback ratings over the last 12 months, with the most expensive item sold $140. Then all of a sudden 10 listings for vintage cars appear. The Desoto listing has already disappeared.

I live just outside Bellingham. If you have an address, I'll go by and see if its there.

Wire transfer is the red flag, I'd say.
Grammar and punctuation are also suspect.
Scam.

You just ask to go see the car even if you don't go.... and most of the time the answer is : the car is ready to be shipped in a container and you can't go see it... classic scam...

Yup, I asked the seller the address of the car, and said I could come and look. No response.

The answer I got from a scammer was that he was currently staying in Cuba! But of course, he wanted me to pay him immediately.
