Hmmmmm, my momma always told me if it smells don't eat it, this may be a an honest person but I think your concern speaks volumes. A money order is as good as cash, if not better! I would walk away.......

A fool and his money are soon parted....

Not to call you a "fool" but anyone who falls for this has to have his head examined.

First, I would never pay that much for that item even it was brand new NOS in the box with Carrol Shelby's own signature on it....

Second, only way I would ever pay "something" for it with those buyers terms would be to see it in person first. Then, hand over cash....

Just saw a 65 AM/FM radio for sale from a car radio restoration business on the web for 1000 and that was refurbished (if I remember correctly). Pretty sure it was no where near 2500. The only other catch was that they also wanted a core.
Your deal sounds suspicious to me.

Pass. If YOU are willing to spend $2500 for one, you can certainly get one for 1/2 or less, and not need cash.

I have an original 65 (date coded on the cardboard tag and how many 65's were made?) AM/FM in excellent condition and I noted with interest the $1000 awhile back. If someone offered me $2500 for it I would have to sell it. I didn't think they were worth $1000 yet, as I've see nice ones in the $800 range. I even have 2 of the replica AM/FM's that were made about 10 years ago. They are EXACTLY like the original faceplates but are 40W stereo. The orig was a whopping 14W mono!!! If you really need one, I'd even go $2400 and I'll take a M.O.!! If someone really has to pay 2X or 3X value, I'm in, but I'd really keep looking, if I were you!
