Take a look at a couple of cars on Detroit Craigslist. 1969 & 1972 GTOs. Fake? Opinions.

Sorry. Don’t see how to copy and paste here. Go to cars for sale. Type in GTO as search criteria. Both are there.

FWIW - PHS is Pontiac Historical Services, a worthwhile VIN authentication service.

I used to be heavy in Pontiac cars, and would never buy or sell one without PHS paperwork.

In 1964 and 1965 GTO was an option on the LeMans, not a separate model.

First thing I noticed is on 72 GTO it looks like a Le Mans base that has been transformed into a GTO. On the GTO that I have seen they have a 140 mph speedometer not the 120 MPH one. I had a 72 Le Mans sport original that had the 140 mph speedometer as well as bucket seats and a fiberglass front nose. I can't seem to find anymore that are correct. The build sheet would be helpful on it. If I had the money I would find another Le Mans sport.

Compare the Craiglist 69 pictures to the Classiccars.com pictures. Same VIN being used, and that 69 is listed as already sold.

Who says "dual throaty exhaust"? "The margins are even." LOL

I find this style of writing offensively douchey. Seems like it wants to snare 75 year old retirees with half their marbles.

That car not only has the same description, it made it from FL to MI with the same mileage!

This one has some history that can be traced almost a year to the date, something doesn't smell right. VIN: 242379A116266

You need to examine the car, numbers, history, etc real close before parting with any cash.

Yeah... A ‘69 GTO listed for half the price it brought at auction.

On Craigslist.

With only a few pictures.

Nothing at all to worry about here...but I should probably help that Nigerian Prince get his money out of the country first before wiring the seller the money for the GTO... crzy

I mean, if any place is going to be a GTO haven it’s metro Detroit. Do you know how many gear heads restore cars in that area? A ton. They don’t call it the Motor City for nothing.

The '72 was taken down in the last hour or so.

Ask them if you can schedule a time to see them. If they ok it they are legit. If they want $30k in WM gift cards they are fake.

If my internet search is correct the 69 was sold by Barrett Jackson last year 30k. Yep this is a scam. The 72 is gone but I imagine it will show up again.
