I think if it's really, really nice it could definitely be worth much more than $15k, but $35k is going to be tough in any condition for it.  If an actual description was offered, maybe we'd know.

I offered him to trade my 89 RR Spur, he said maybe, have not heard back from him.  Name on email is, Halis S.B, not in Buick or AACA directory.  Wonder if it is a scam, especially since the AACA award was in 2013, 9 years ago, and the pictures look to be a bit old also.

My educated guess:  It's not a scam.  Scammers deliberately

price their cars too low, not too high, so victims will jump at the

fake "deal" without doing much thinking.

 

You could check with the national AACA office:  If the seller's

name and the person who received the award are the same,

that's good proof.  It not, it doesn't prove or disprove anything,

because the car may have changed hands since 2013.

He responded to me once then when I asked a for his phone number and email address, he never responded back.  I have moved on and no longer have good feelings about the car.  Thanks for your comments.

Jim,

In case you're still interested, the Seller's phone number is in the first post above and also in the Craigslist ad: Call: 619 534 56 seven one

Good luck with your search.

Thanks JP, but as I mentioned in the previous post, when I asked questions via email, he no longer responded to me.  Any way I purchased a 66 Thunderbird, so won't be looking for another Buick for a couple of months.
