68 G for sale on Ebay. This is a poor listing with only one picture
and to call for more information. A car of this caliber and asking price, should have lots of pictures and a good description Imho.

Here's the car's original owner.

This is a rather unique XR7-G since it is mostly original paint, matching numbers, low mileage, with it's original window sticker. While the eBay ad is not what I would have done, if you want a really good XR7-G you might want to give the guy a call.

By the way, it also has the original owner card, bill of sale, and other neat documentation. And it is one of only two known XR7-G's with original rear mounted antenna.

Only 2 with rear antennas? The 302 J code I got from Lin Thurston had it and so did the White 390 That bill B got that Phil now has. I see the green car has Oregon plates, This is not one that I can remember seeing.

And that, ladies and gents, is how NOT to sell a car. But I'm sure they'll get phone calls, just based on what it is.

The rear mounted power antenna on my ex-Basore G does not appear on the Marti and more than likely dealer added.

I think this is the G that is for sale on eBay -

Looks like a $6000 set of wheels and tires to me.
