Yeah, I call shenanigans on this "car just came out of a a private collection in Pennsylvania".
It was for sale on CL in the Akron OH area a year or so prior to teh link from @ayilar. Is currently in MI.
Unless someone in PA bought it from OH, and the MI person bought it in PA - someone's trying to upsell a car as being collector-quality.

Looking back, it was likely a good buy at $6000 as Fusey coupes are increasing in value.
When I first saw it, it did have some cosmetic flaws and was 'only' a 360, so didn't excite me enough.
And some say the 29-roofline hurts further resale value.

I am guessing the current buyer/flipper got it at $4-5000, and has it priced really high so a brokerage house can 'steal' it at $8000 and try another flip at $15k.

The previous seller was obviously of the hostile variety and would not reply with any worthwhile information to inquirers. Buying this car was probably more hassle than expected for current flipper, thus the added "emotional baggage fee" to current sticker price on this "Prowler"......
