Robert Campbell had this to say when he first started inspecting this car

All,
The new owner has been in contact with Jim. I will provide some pictures of the data plate and its attachment points tomorrow. Thanks to al for being understanding and after talking to the new owner who talked with Jim it seems that he last two owners would not allow anyone to look at the car. With that, a red flag would be proper.

Rob
how can you get first hand info if owner will not allow any inspection.

Now to me it sounded like even the past owners had doubts and did not want to know truth.

Edit; I think it also did not help with a different red GT-E that was a confirmed re-body and documented by owner.

Maybe a question mark is granted until it's verified. But not bashing it as a rebodied car without proper knowledge of it.
The past owner or owners could have been contacted. Seems to me the seller was led to believe all the hype about it being a rebodied car too.
Thats a shame.

So let's keep kicking those who have done so much for the Cougar community because they reached a conclusion, based on their experience and the available information, that was shown to be incorrect when additional new information became available.

Based on the available information, and the absence of anything to the contrary from those owners, it was believed to have been rebodied

I am so tired of this crap.
