Not to this specific incident, but in general, I'm in favor of someone who is genuinely looking to sell items that hold no interest for him/her to people who do have an interest. That's kind of how I ended up getting #11662. The seller wasn't a collector or restorer, but put it on eWillys, which he knew was a place that would get the attention of CJ collectors. I was in MA and he was in TX, so there was always a risk of a scam, but in the end, it worked out. (Now all I have to do is get the Jeep back from where it's stored in CO to MA!)

Probably have to wait until he returns from overseas deployment.
If you can't get there in a Jeep you don't need to be there

Most of the parts I ever bought  were sitting there in my hand.

The person's phone number given who text me in response was "Margaret"

There is a guy that lives in Delta, Co and owns BC Vintage Jeeps that transport Willys and Jeep part all over the country.  He is actually transporting my 1946 to PA in a couple of weeks 

He frequents MA because that is where his family lives. If interested send me a private chat or google his business

x2... Bob's good people. He collected up a back seat for me in WI and I met him in CT... for about half the money it would have been any other way.  Pretty sure he was through CT and MA this past weekend.

I hate to see you throw the baby out with the wash.  Have there been lots of scams on this site?  Seems like you all have a good system for flushing scammers out without putting restrictions on newbies.  Many people come on this site for legit reasons but do not want to monitor and hang around for any length of time before they can sell a part. 
I say keep on being diligent and work together to weed out the scammers.  Share your suspicions with others and maybe other forums?  You have a topic, Transport Needed.  How about a topic, "Is this a Scam"?

I was conversing briefly with him about a t84/d18 he said he had. Wanted $2200 for it unrebuilt. Too rich for the guys blood I’m helping out anyway.

Bob wasn't on my radar... Thanks for the heads up.
I may call him regarding a load of "Jeep support" equipment from Glastonbury, CT to Nathrop Colorado.
