Default Am I Crazy? Seller claims that this car is a 2006 with a 5-speed manual

It sure looks like a 2004 or 2005 Autostick car to me.
2006 pt cruiser / 92000 miles/ sunroof

He even sent me more pictures of the same car. What do you experts think?

First, it's not even a 2006 model. From the newer style rear hatch but the older style bumper fascias and orange tail light blinkers, that's is a 2005 model.

And the shifter inside is an auto stick. T'ain't no 2006 and t'ain't no 5 speed car.

But, that's a fair asking price for a 2005 GT. Also, my 2005 GT has lifetime satellite radio. This blue one may have the same. It might be worth checking out.

Thanks, I feel much better. It really would have sucked to fly over there and find out it wasn't what I wanted. I want a 5-speed stick GT or Dream, with a preference for an '03-'05.
He claims that it is a 1 owner car, apparently he is not the original owner.

Maybe he meant one owner, before him.

man you'd FLY IN for a CL car? i make them come to me. they meet me at "my mechanics shop so he can take a look" when they roll up I go outside and talk to them while "my mechanic" stands at his counter with my money stroking his 45. I test drive it, and then if all seems well the car comes inside to be inspected on a lift.

last CL car i had there was a pearl blue mustang that i passed on. when they arrived to show me the car it was a mustang that looked nice, accompanied by a suburban full of vato's. the doors on the car didn't work because they installed door poppers they neglected to mention in the ad and after the testdrive it went up on the lift where i found the dipstick tube was missing and there was a stick a real life wood stick plugging the hole in the block.

maybe it's just a shopping in chicago thing but there's no way i'd fly to meet anyone on CL with big money and no gun.

Maybe the seller is calling reverse a gear and sport shifting a manual transmission. LOL
As for the year, many often make mistakes about the year of the vehicle model vs production date. If the seller is reading say 06/06 as the production date and thinks it is a 06 model instead of a late 05 production model vehicle.

"Manual" - ask him where the clutch pedal is at...seems he removed it.

Several thoughts here:

1. This is definitely a 2005 PT. It's first gen and it has the electric rear hatch handle. Unless modded or unless I'm viewing the photos wrong, that make it only a 2005.

2. The auto-stick and similar are rare among other cars. The seller may only think it's a manual because of the auto-stick. It kind of makes since if you knew absolutely nothing about transmissions. And many folks don't and many more have never driven a manual transmission. So if it CAN be shifted manually, they may consider it a manual.

3. This is still not a bad asking price for this car. Someone could bring up concerns about the timing belt needing to be changed and then make an offer in the mid $2K range.

States records for that being done.
