Maybe a scam. Reverse picture search shows it on auction sites

Listing a car on CL in multiple states or cities is a pretty common thing, along with having it on eBay or other sites at the same time. Exposure helps in a quicker sale, so I doubt it's a scam.

The phone number is a Dallas Texas area code.
Palm trees don't grow very well in Dallas.

Usually a dead give away. I see adds like this every day on the Boston Craigslist website. Palm trees, cement driveway, and stucco house are not something you see in Ma.

This is a scam. I played along with the add yesterday.
Got a long story husband died and she sold the house. Took the car with her back to Montana on her farm.
So all you have to do is send money to ebay which will hold your money from her until you give the ok. After they ship the car to your address. Ha ha.
This is a typical line a scammer will use.
Wish I could put a stop on them !
