Does the Commission Number/VIN and other codes 'match' the vehicle - Decoding the Commission Number/VIN and other codes/serial numbers can help to show if the vehicle is as it left the factory. See Deciphering the Wedge for help on locating and interpreting these details.
Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - Anyone who asks you to is a scammer.
Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.

Never give out financial info - Bank account, Social Security Number, PayPal account, etc..
Do not purchase sight-unseen - That amazing "deal" may not exist.
1981 TR8 For SalePosted: 2020-11-9
Doug and Diane Gold are putting their 1981 FI California TR8 up for sale. Their life style RVing has not allowed them to enjoy her . They are the second owners since 1986. She has just under 100k miles, rust free, in exceptional condition winning many Gold awards at Triumphests and other car shows over the 30 years. She is painted Silver Leaf Metalic with a Robbins silver stayfast cloth top and blue interior.
She is currently in Southern California and available at $16,500.
61,419 miles. This car was previously refurbished by John Manske. Maraschino Black paint is in very good condition. Striping and decals are good, there are a couple of custom touches done by John that do not detract from the look of the car. Wheels have been repainted and are in excellent condition, all are official “Spider” wheels. Original pewter semi-shag carpet is in good condition, as is the Spider specific upholstery. There is a rip in the bottom portion of the passengers seat, other than that it is in good condition. Original AM/FM/cassette stereo (including the laurel wreath faceplate) works and has an aftermarket plug-in system that allows you to connect an iPhone with lightning port that plays through the stereo. Slim box speakers are attached (but removable) to the rear firewall that further enhance the sound of the system. Upgraded speakers are behind original grilles in the doors. A/C system works and was upgraded with a new Sanden compressor that doesn’t bog down the engine when running. All bulbs have been replaced with LEDs except for the headlights. Relays have been installed for each headlight. Working front and rear fog lights. This is a US spec carbed car with a functioning FASD. The top is in excellent condition but leaks because it was not correctly installed, specifically at the top corners of the windscreen. I ALWAYS put the top down correctly and the windows are in excellent shape. Just a few hundred miles on the Monza exhaust system that looks and sounds great. Replaced both door cards and rear firewall panel with new ones from Victoria British, originals are included. Rubber carb mounts replaced with aluminum ones and have had no problems since. The steering wheel is the original lookalike (but bigger) from The Wedge Shop, the original is included. I’ve saved everything that was salvageable, if I replaced something I always kept the original. I have babied this car and have done my best to get it back into original condition. It has been well loved and garaged the entire time I’ve had it. I also have MANY spares to go with it...I’m a bit of a hoarder when it comes to that.
