71 LS6 @ BJ 2morrow

Yep ANOTHER ONE!!!

ON Barrett-Jackson.com they show Lot# 362 as a quote: "An original Chevelle SS 454/425hp."

I guess it's ALL about the money, I just can't see why Craig Jackson insists on letting OBVIOUS bogus cars be proclaimed as "REAL DEAL" when in the end he's only hurting his co.s credibility.

The car is slated to be auctioned tomorrow, gold over black, buckets, TH400, 60sK miles etc...
RA

ACES# 08555
1972 454SS, TH400, A/C, true W-code, original color combo, correct date coded engine. Arlington car, stayed in south TX it's entire life until '06.

Why's it bogus? There were LS6's in '71, right?

Man I should sell my clone at BJ and then use all the proceeds to buy two real ones from people in the real world.

Re: 71 LS6 @ BJ 2morrow

No where in the listing does it mention LS6,it's a rough LS5(at best) with a lid decal from an LS6 vette.

I had the chance to buy a 71 LS6 Vette in 1985 for $9,000. Green with black interior. P/w, tilt, can't remember much else except it had 52,000 miles and was mint. I had the cash for it but my brother talked me out of it because " You can't drive those things in the winter ". I bought a new Thunderbird instead. 188 built. I am going over to my brothers place to kill him.
