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.
Transactions are between users only - No third party provides a "guarantee".
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 All Texas DH PI TR8 For Sale, $16,000 Posted: 2020-3-2
1981 DH PI TR8, SATPV4586BA406330 (less than 450 manufactured), all Texas car.
I bought this car in 1998 through Classic & Unique Vehicles, Inc. in Round Rock TX and am the second registered owner. At the time of purchase, it showed 9,861 miles and currently has 40,350. The photos were taken in 2006. The additional 7,000 miles were added over the next thirteen years. I have continued to keep the inspection and registration current and have all of that paperwork. These documents will verify that only 332 miles have been added during the last four years and only 12 miles over the last two.
This TR8 is 95% original, including paint, and for anything not original such as carpet, radio, wheels, and exhaust, I have kept and stored the original items. Everything except the AC is in good working order and after the P-O, as a condition of sale, had replaced the compressor, accumulator and orifice tube, he was told that the expansion valve was bad. Since that part is underneath and/or behind the dash, I told him to forget about it and we renegotiated the sell price. I didn’t want the dash messed with so I removed the compressor belt and left it that way.
So why am I selling the car?? I have had my TR8 for 29 years and my wife and I have Immensely enjoyed it. It has been a fun ride and still looks, drives and performs well. Although still young at heart, these Texas summers are just too hot for us and now that I’m retired, I have other projects in the mill and I need the space in my garage. The clincher however, was when I took the cover off for the next drive to the inspection station and discovered the previous two years registration tags still on the seat. I realized that I had lost interest and that this car needed to go to someone who will drive and appreciate it.
If interested, send me a note at email@example.com or call me at 936-321-2425, leave a message on the recorder and I will call you back.
