White Bt1 on ebay

Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know anything about this bt1 on ebay? It seems by the comments that either the guy listing doesnt know much about turbo vls or he is using photos of someone elses car - I'm inclinded to think he doesnt know what he is on about as he mentions the car "whistles as you accelerate". It would have been good buying if it is indeed a turbo bt1 like in the pictures at 3k!

Dan.

i reckon its sus. Apparently according to the questions some guy already got the winning bid. And how can he say its not a turbo when he has a pic of a turbo motor ?

has anyone considered that maybe, just maybe it actually doesn't have a turbo

wasn't this car for sale or featured on here a while back?

if so it was originally a n/a done as a replica turbo BT1, pretty well too

INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CAR.

1...The Photos are of the exact car that is for sale right now

2...Nothing has been removed from the car, It has a Police Siren, Radio CB and Big Heavy duty Torch

3...The car is a standard 6 Cylinder with NO TURBO

4...You are bidding on a normal Commodore VL, NOT BT1, NOT A POLICE CAR, AND NOT A SHERIFFS CAR!
Clearly it says its not a BT1 and not turbo... so wheres the confusion?

where's the turbo?

a red rocker (rocket for some) cover and a crossover pipe don't mean it has one

what sort of scam then ???

he's selling a car for $, seems pretty clear to me and he's sick of kids posting crap instead of bidding or coming to see the car first

not really a scam scam but the fact that the pics are misleading and the car originally sold for 4,500 last week.. now he's still got the same add just more info saying its not a turbo which clearly still has the pic of a turbo motor and says the pics are the actual car.. yet everyone that's asking for a tag ID he says its a N/A 6 NOT A TURBO..

i agree the guy is a spaz... his communication skills are terrible and misinterpreted.

1...The Photos are of the exact car that is for sale right now -Except for the engine bay as it no longer has a turbo

2...Nothing has been removed from the car, It has a Police Siren, Radio CB and Big Heavy duty Torch - Correct, except as said above the turbo has been removed

3...The car is a standard 6 Cylinder with NO TURBO - Maybe a recent picture of the engine bay would stop confusion and more questions

4...You are bidding on a normal Commodore VL, NOT BT1, NOT A POLICE CAR, AND NOT A SHERIFFS CAR! - It would of been alot easier if he said it is a mock up of a bt1, and better if he posted up pics of the tags to prove it

genuine people would have simply inspected and then bid

the questions were from the usual timewasting 'experts' who seem out to try to prove something but failed multiple times

pics of the tags would have simply shown it to not be a BT1 or a factory turbo but he already stated that very clearly several times in his ad

if it was the other way around and he was claiming it to be factory turbo or ex police then asking for tag pics would have been justified to verify

its an N/A if u look at the manifolds u can tell, the top pic has a N/A heat shields and the bottem has a turbo manifold with a turbo heat shield, the turbo heat shields have that extra hump part for the turbo flang to bolt onto were the N/A shields dont that just stay straight
