Re: Heavy Chvey On Ebay...something Just Isnt Right.
There are numerous items which make me doubt the car being legit.
To start with the Trim Tag, the date is 02D (Feb. 4th week). It is my understanding from a couple of source books the Heavy Chevy didn't debut until 04A. It is hard to believe the first Heavy would roll off the line in Feb. and then the rest of them wouldn't start until April.
His build sheet doesn't have anything that ties it in with the car such as VIN or Body #.
His build sheet shows E78-14 tires. I know the SS wheels he has is incorrect because they are 15 inch.
The Heavy pkg. did not include bright moldings on the wheel well lips.
The build sheet shows many U options. The Heavy pkg could not have certain lighting options so I think this would be incorrect also.
As mentioned before, it should not have carpet.
As Dale mentioned, if this was the first pilot car, it would have more value to keep it the correct colors. He changed the exterior and interior.
All of these inconsistencies make me say, fraud.
I am going to send him a message asking about the build date and the build sheet.
