In 2002 I ran an ad requested parts for 1929 Packard 633 Victoria Coupe. Two days ago (17 years later) I received an email Saying that the person "Paul" was parting out a 1929 Packard and did I still need parts. I emailed back and said I did need some Packard parts and what did he have and how much were they. He sent the following and with the photo of the car"
"Just attached the picture of my car below , I`m breaking the complete for
parts , since you need some parts there is no problem , I want you to send me the
complete list of parts that you need , so that I`II will give you prices for them .
Please I`II also need your exact shipping address to enable me figure out the
shipping fees to your door step . Hope to hear from you soon next."
He also sent this photo:
I asked him where he is located and how much he wanted for the car.
"I understand but the engine is smoking, and again dad just pass away few months ago, the car belongs to him. There is no space for the car in the yard, so let me know what you need from the car.
I'm in Pensyviana, I'll accept just $3,500 because the engine smoke , So let have your exact shipping address."
I asked him for additional photos.

I said that if I bought the car that I would come and get it myself so there was no need for his agent to get involved ( I had decided when I saw the price that this was a scam) and have not heard from him since. I also found this very same car for sale in Hemmings for $85,000. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/packard/eight/2281756.html
Be careful, there are scams out there.
