Craigslist ad has two versions 2007 & 2008

GMC Sierra listed as 2007 and 2008 in two separate ads. Same pics . Both ads have been edited . Price dropped to 6900 for both. Different phone numbers and names for contacts. Husband and wife maybe.
They have pic of plate on door jam which give mfg date and vehicle number.

well JeffH60919, do you have a question or is this just an observation??

could be as simple as a keyboard error so if you are sufficiently curious, call 1 or both the numbers and ask ....

they had a 2007 and a 2007 1/2...changed the 2007 chassis to 2008 midway through..at least with the 3500's...I am assuming the same with the 1500's you can tell by the front end lights...some look like 2002-2007 and other look like 2008 +

I’ve seen this type of ad a few times before on kijiji.

One of the ads may be a curbsider , They “borrowed” the picture and details from the legit seller.

Google the phone numbers and addresses. You might find one of the phone number appeared before selling different vehicles

Cardguy seems most credible.

Why would curber use pics of other cars? What does that achieve?

Not sure, but you’ll sometimes see a truck ad on kijiji for Sudbury and the same pictures in a different ad in Gta kijiji

In this case, the Scarborough ad is legit, owner knew nothing about the Sudbury truck. The photos matched the Scarborough postal code shown in kijiji. The Sudbury postal code was heavily treed and rural. The Sudbury phone number had been used previously in other car ads

Other times would be the same photos between an Oshawa ad and a Belleville ad. Another time, Hamilton/Waterdown and GTA.
