Yea saw that one yesterday (I've been monitoring the 911 listings for a few weeks - I'm going to be in the market for one soon I think). Absolutely amazing piece of history there. I certainly hope it goes to a person that will take care of it and race it occasionally.

The green-on-yellow color scheme is pretty hard to look at, but it IS a 1970s car after all. . .

Good looking car. The seller doesn't seemed to thrilled to answer questions about the auction.

Plus, he is not giving accurate answers, since the 'kneepad number' is the VIN number, AFAIK.

More importantly, there's talk elsewhere on the web that RS #406 is safely tucked away in someone's collection back East.

Here's a big thread on RS#406 on the Early S Board:

Paul's words couldn't be truer.

thin metal cars are real easy to check without measuring anything:
put your index finger in the middle of the roof and push down- a production thickness car will just budge a little- a thin metal car will pop in
Test # 2: then lift the hood- with your fingers and thumb you can twist the trunk panel behind the gas tank (where the i.d. vin is located) up and down

There is holes along the rocker for the trim. Why would you take this off a piece of history like this? The LTW did not have the trim but the touring did IIRC. It would be so scary to buy a car like this!!

This is a bogus car and I can prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt. I have photos of the production # from the real RS #406 which was on eBay Feb. '05. That # has been verified by the only person I know of that has copies of the original build sheets.

The seller of the car on eBay now has refused to provide the prod. # off his car. Case closed.

PS This is not a piece of history but rather a very well done RS replica made to decive.

Well there seems to be a solution. The current owner of #406 (the real car) is obviously not poor. Poor people don't own these cars. If I were him, I'd spend the money to bring a lawsuit against the Ebay seller; the FBI would already be apprised of the situation. VIN tampering is a federal crime. If you want to get your car permanently logged as the original, there's nothing like a lawsuit to get it hardwired into history.

Although the above statement is true, it reminds me that 5/4 Americans have trouble with fractions but I digress....

The obvious tell-tale sign is that the seller seems insulted any time someone tries to get more info to verify the car. This is a sure sign that something is rotten in Denmark.

If this is a fake it could hurt the value of the real RS #406.

Kenik,

There is an effort being made to contact the current owner of the real car right now while the imposter is still listed on eBay.

Look at the zero feedback high bidders name, someone is a phony bidder and is scamming this scammer.
