The OP of this thread has confirmed that this is not his car.......
BUYERS BEWARE.......And since this thread has not gained any interest, I will assume that most of us here are aware of this company.
The Ebay ad states: ....."Fiberglass body by Innovated Street Machines".
A quick search for those not familiar with " Innovated Street Machines" yields the followingL:
This manufacturer has a long and checkered past. It started out as Fiberfab and the business was sold to George Lavin in the 70's. He changed the name to Classic Motor Carriages. This company was shut down by the Florida Attorney General's office for fraud (they were taking orders for cars and never delivering). One of the settlement stipulations was that Mr. Lavin wold have to make good on all the orders that had been paid for and that hadn't been delivered. A holding company Innovative Street Machines was created to make good on what Classic Motor Carriages had not delivered. Once the Florida Attorney General was satisfied that all paid orders had been fulfilled, Mr. Lavin changed the name one more time to StreetBeast. This company existed until last year when Mr. Lavin was caught in a Ponzi scheme which bilked millions out of unsuspecting investors in South Florida. Part of the settlement to keep him out of jail was that he had to turn most of his fortune over to the state. As a result he had to liquidate StreetBeast and their assets were auctioned off in 2011.
