My first rule of thumb for craigslist is whether or not they leave a phone number. If you can get a number and talk to the guy then it might be legit. Looking at the price I REALLY doubt it's real. Marv at Specter does not sell things like that anywhere near the asking price.

So, YES, it's most likely a SCAM.

I talked with someone at the 45 run last September who told me that as of July 1 2008 NO MORE RHD vehicles could be registered in CA by the DMV...PERIOD. There's probably a thread somewhere else on MUD about this.

I am a little dubious that the author of the ad doesn't know this.

Trying to locate that info on the DMV website and haven't found it yet

Before Buying a Vehicle From Out of State—Be Sure You Can Register It in California (FFVR 29)
As usual, there are a few exceptions included in the law. As a California resident or business you may be able to register a 49-State vehicle if you:

* Obtained it as part of a divorce or inheritance settlement.
* Purchased it to replace a vehicle stolen while you were using it out of state.
* Purchased it to replace a vehicle which was destroyed or made inoperative beyond reasonable repair while you were using it out of state.
* Were on active military duty outside California, and you registered the vehicle in the state of your last military service.

Nothing specifically mentioning RHD.
