Is BAT the new dumping ground for dubious Dinos?

Bring a Trailer has listed a Dino that appears to be combined from two prior cars from far different models. Furthermore, BAT, is aware that the VIN plate has been welded over and not original yet they allow teh auction to continue and teh owner hides from questions.

This feels like a setup and some poor buyer is going to get something far different than anticipated resulting in sour grapes. Shame on BAT for allowing this falsified Dino to be listed for sale.

I see they also have a 330 GT with a V-8 engine, is this a trend at BAT?

As with any auction, due diligence is required. And, speaking from first hand experience with one of the sellers, this is NOT the first time a vehicle or history has been misrepresented. The Scaglietti numbers stamped on the car will quickly point to the chassis number. I'm sure that Marcel Massini could get to the bottom of this....As to what BAT should do, they know.

Great point.
Did you see the BAT comments where the seller responded that he would provide the requested pictures of the additional production stamping numbers and seller then went 100% quiet, changed his mind and did not show the Scaglietti body stampings for Chassis 01208
