I like the silver spray paint on the plenum.

You didn't notice the wiring in the lower left of this photo?

The post below me from a new user account is terrific. Wonder who that is?

Here is one of its many listings in the psat year: 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV 2 Door Coupe | eBay

I believe that is the one where it actually was delivered.

And here is one a month before that: 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV6 2.5 Coupe 2-Door | eBay

It had sold a number of other times (from 3 separate, but somehow similar seller accounts) and was always back on eBay.

One close look at the photos and you'd have to run. Shame on the seller, but the buyer could have done a bit more due diligence.

Thumbs up A great source of Alfa Romeo Parts on eBay

I bought several items from them with no problems whatsoever. Items were well packed and they arrived in no time. They also have 100% positive feedback. Great experience I recommend to all Alfa Romeo lovers.

Ok, well obviously you are either the seller or closely related to them so maybe you can clarify how this whole "selling a pig in a poke" to suckers under multiple accounts works.

This is where the super rare black GTV6 (?) sold (?) for $3,300 on 27 Jun 2017 using the seller account alfa-romeo-lover which only has feedback buying cheap junk.

This is where the SAME super rare black GTV6 sold for $3,000 on 21 Jul 2017 using the seller account rare-cars which has 100% positive feedback buying cheap junk and 100% NEGATIVE FEEDBACK selling the car in question to brokertrader.

And here is where brokertrader has an honest listing trying to offload the "pig in a poke" he purchased.

100% positive feedback on ebay doesn't mean anything when it is just from buying 10c trinkets.

I used to sell cars on eBay and found out that eBay list the first 5 cars for free then charge you $120 if the car is sold. If it is not sold you pay nothing. But if the car was sold and buyer doesn't pay then you have to cancel the transaction and eventually get back eBay's sales commission.
On the other hand, after 5 car listings the seller is charged $60 listing fees flat rate per car and no sales commission but also no refund for non paying auction winners. In both cases there is non refundable pictures fees and extra fees for reserve price and 10 days listings.
This car was at least sold 3 times to non paying winners so I'd understand the idea of listing under different accounts.
I tried this car and took it for a test drive and it was great but I ended up buying red car from the same seller which is also great.
It is not fair to jump to conclusions and believe everything somebody accusing the other of being dishonest without hearing both sides of the story.

Which red car did you buy? Can you show us the listing?

I invite the seller here (so you are not him) to tell us his side of the story.

The red car I bought was not listed on eBay. He was keeping it for himself but I gave a very good offer.
I will invite him to register here and defend himself.
