That is impossible to tell without examining and driving it. If the doors don't shut right, ect.

They didn't mention 5.9 and I thought the 5.9 had more fake wood in the interior, such as the shift bezel. I doubt its a nine, probably just a 5.2

No troll it's a 5.9. Looks exactly like my interior and exterior minus the hood and grill. Leather handle on shifter, leather storage lid, ect.

6 hours seems like it would be a long trip to drive a niner that isn't a niner or that has frame damage. Just throwing out worst case scenarios there. I would be leery of it without driving it first. And 6 hours seems like quite a ways just to have to drive back if it DOES have frame damage. I'm not trying to discourage a sweet buy, I would just be a little freaked out personally. If it is straight and a niner, grab that sonnuvab****! Trust me, the difference between the 4.0 and 5.9 is absolutely ridiculous!

I noticed it is missing the hood vents and that makes me think it's been hit or something in the past? or should i try to buy it because of the fact it's a niner? Lol

This one has been on sale for several months as well...

Why not just take it to get inspected before purchasing?
