ok, so you saying it was an original copo, but now has a ce block in it plus the fact that it is an automatic and you still think it sold for close to 100K?

FYI COPOs were also ordered with automatics.    That has no baring on whether or not this is a legit car but do not want you to think they only came with 4 speeds.

Says the mileage is 9100. If that's true, sounds like a car that was used for drag racing. Probably why the original motor is gone as well. Does have a 4:10 rear?

I know COPO 's came with automatics, my point was that 4 speed muscle cars usually sell for a decent amount more than automatics, so you start adding up things up 1) the CE block, 2) its an automatic 3) no paperwork , and I just wasn't as sure it would pull 100k is all.

AND

Why wouldn't this be considered a recreation??? (if he has nothing to prove it otherwise)

I gotcha..  I didnt know by your post.

I do not see proof one way or the other.  To me its one of those cars you put a ? mark next to until info is presented one way or the other.  Whats been presented so far isnt enough.

I guess my definition of recreation would be no proof showing other wise, which in the case of this car it seems to fit.

Knowledgeable people have looked at it - it's a COPO.

So they must be identifying something that is legitimate proof of its originality?

IT is a COPO if they were realistic at all about the price it would have sold and the details would be known.
I know from the person who offered it that 125k was turned down with out hesitation... they think it is worth 250k.

Would have been nice for them to present the documentation or more back round describing its pedigree so more reasonable offers could have been entertained.

Non original motor, needs restoring... 125k seems like a fair offer to me. The seller needs to check out some of the auction results.
