Probably a good reason why the wife left him. Some people need help and just don't realize it yet. Car has a sole? WTF is he talking about? But get in line now cause so many friends dying to get it now!

Guy will be getting emails asking about wife and is she available..

When new the 63 was a rolling problem car. A GTO had so better quality and would run by a corvette easily. Have you ever placed a car together after some one pulled it apart ? Good Luck.

That engine, "ZL1 Ram jet 454 number 247 of 200" is almost as rare as L88 #1675 of 30.

If you have a 63 GTO, I'll buy it.

The GTO was a passenger car that DeLorean dumped a big engine into; the Corvette was a purpose built sports car

I sure would not want to risk that immediate payment of $1.00 without seeing the pile of parts...

LOL. I do have a few "63's" sitting in my pasture, one an old tempest race car with a set back 428 in it, a lemans 326 3 speed car, and the crown jewel a lemans with a 4 barrel 4 cylinder & 4 speed, can stick some GTO emblems on any one of them then claim I was "told" it was Deloreans wife's car!!

I just had to post his actual text...too funny. So here it is, with no editing by me.



As usual Iíve owned this car my whole adult life I was resto molding it to be the best C-2 ever but wife decided to leave me so Iím selling it. Already own a crate motor ZL1 Ram jet 454 number 247 of 200 and Paul Newman Creations frame. Best one made. I have all parts including rolling chassis, 67. It black frame and the new frame. I have tons of pictures must sell but you have to want it more the me. Car has a sole that has been good to me and maybe you. If you canít afford 60000 donít waste my time. Iím not giving it away too many friends are dying to get it so get in line.

OK, I see it now. Maybe it's four wheel drive. It does have "choice" of transmission type.

His first mistake is to list it as a 1963 Chevrolet.

I bought my 57 Vett. for a low price, as there were few bids, because he listed it as a 1957 Chevrolet.
