Default Someone wanna run a carfax for me? Possible trade for a rare car

I put my 2001 Ford Escape on craigslist

a guy contacted me and is trying to trade me a 1998 Buick Regal GSX..
but i cant tell if its a real GSX which are pretty rare or a clone made from a GS

he says its the real deal with not one spot of rust.. not even on the pinch welds underneath. SLP stage 3 PAC, dual piston brake upgrade, 3" downpipe, SLP loudmouth exhaust, new tranny, strut tower braces.. says it runs and drives perfect

I got the VIN # so i was wondering if we could do some research on this..
not sure if it would come up on a fax if it was a real GSX tho since they are sent to a specialty shop after they leave the factory for the upgrades..

Well if its a real GSX its worth quite a bit more than my Escape.. and the Escape has been a money pit the last few months.. had lots of issues with it.. got em fixed but lost confidence in it.

Not to mention I'm a big fan of the L67 motor and sleepers.. don't get much better than a modded supercharged Regal

Correct me if I'm wrong but the gsx wasn't reintroduced until 2000. The 98 was a GS which still had the l67 supercharged 240hp v6. The gsx in 2000 bumped HP up to 300. As long as the motor has good compression, the tranny is smooth and the car is in good shape overall screw it. A good condition GS goes for about $3500 you can verify that. which is probably more than your car. A craigslist straight up trade would make me a little Leary though.
