That would be a shame if it was just a parts car, but if it was, seems like you could disassemble it and take it to Carlisle and sell the parts for twice that.

Something smells fishy on this one...at that price, it's a steal...and NO title...
I'd be afraid to even check the VIN for the registered owner...

It looks good, tho...a lot of new stuff(claimed)...
DaveW's right tho...you could make some good $$$ sellin parts from it.

If you just happen to be towing it through Minnesota, I would love to try to figure out the title issue and turn it into a sellable car.  Let me know if you are in the neighborhood.

  No such thing as a free lunch or a cheap corvette. If it looks good and smells bad, something is really out of sorts. Anybody think of doing a Carfax on it? If that information isn't available, I would stay away from that one.

No pink and out of the DMV system is very hard to believe.  One can trace anything with enough effort if it has a number somewhere on it.  I smell some drugs or something and would not want to get caught towing it across a state line.  My 2 cents.

He could have put 10 grand on it and had a better chance of me buying it. I can bond a title for it, thats no problem but at that price I am scared of it ! Theres going to be 5 guys in trench coats with machine guns coming to recover their Corvette from someone ..LOL

I agree with the majority here. A) It's on Craig's List. B) It's a strange car. C) It's only $2500, D) The entire car is being sold as one piece for parts, E) No title. 
If this is in fact NOT legit, I think it would be less conspicuous if he parted it out, not sold the whole thing.  Not to mention, he'd get more than $2500 that way.
