Texted the seller - here is what I found out.....  I haven't looked at the car in person.

It is located in Salinas, CA.  A bit of a drive for me. 

He texted me a video of the car running sounded decent.

Who built the car – doenst know, I asked who owned the car

Doesn’t know what generation of IFG

Has glass side windows that are power and work good.

No radiators in the rear of the car.

No squeaks when driving the car., although he says he has only driven it 30 miles

Doors function well, but needs shocks

Wheel Spacers

New rear tires

Windshield wiper  - not sure if it works

All digital gauges work

Says he wanted to put a V8 in it, but know good mechanics where he lives :)

Engine hood held up by stick

Paint is good but has scratches

No air suspension

Removable roof works good.

Asked for VIN number. haven't received it yet

Anybody have a guess as to value?  Looks to need some $'s.

Thanks

Rod is right, Mike Bova copied the OE roadster, I saw the body being pulled when I. Went to get mine.

Its to bad that mike got out of the biz he did good work

That's great Rod that a comparison is being done in your shop with all 3 , in 2015 ,we were their when the first accurate Diablo roadster was made , Creative Coach made it ,then it went to NEARC ,where it was refined more,the  owner of CRP ( composite racing products ) was in the shop at Creative Coach with us buying a body.ifg started with the sculped body ,then purchased the 6.0 Naerc these are facts ,ifg went with a 1 piece body ,D &  R ,started with the same coupe body ,with a donor car windshield. Later they made their own roadster version.

That's not an ifg body,  ifg 2nd roadster product is no where near close or accurate compared to naerc.  If they copied anything they sure didn't do a good job.  I believe they're 2nd car is sculpted as well.
I Have 3 diablos in my shop.  Crp, IFG, & A corey davis. ...anyone is welcome to stop by a judge or see for yourself.

naerc had the most accurate diablo replicas

d n r. Had the best fiberglass quality. ...easier to build

crp diablos,  exact replicas

top gun had a great body as well.  All other manufacturers out there tried but fell short.

this is where most of the Roadster in LA came from Creative Coach ,then others splashed them and created their own companies ,3 companies had 1 supplier and 1 set of molds ,then Top Gun , CRP , Exotic Super Cars were all formed.

Here is the real deal answer ,the "Phantom" model Diablo replica from IFG was a "sculpted" car body,to start selling, they sold so many that they purchased a NAERC body from Custom Toys ,copied it and this is where the new IFG 6.0 & Roadster came from , later the roadster front end and engine cover was used from a Creative Coach body kit to make the roadster. the other seller of the roadster version was Top Gun Replica,s . 


Where did the Top Junk uhmmmmm Top Gun Roadster come from? Is it a Sculpted or splashed or a combination or was it just stolen/Copied from NAERC/IFG/DnR

The car in the ad seems to be the later model IFG replica which is more accurate than the earlier sculpted ones.

Thanks Havemurci!  But in your opinion which body is the most correct?  NAERC?

Thanks
