+1 Offering to pay more for an item I have for sale, wants bank details without seeing item

I am selling my car in the quokka online and this is an email that came through titled \"It\'s the Car\"

\"thanks so much for your response. I am so keen about the transaction and i am not ready for drama\'s so i hope you are also in for the goody. I am sure you will have received lots of offer but am offering you $6800 so i hope that beats other offers that you have got. I would have loved to call you concerning this transaction and view it first but i am an Army Officer and am currently in the BASE right now so its really going to be a bit hard to make or receive calls right now but am sure we can run the transaction successfully through here and i am cool with the little i have known about it. I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my pick agent who will be coming over for pick up after you have received full payment into your account. Am making the payment through PayPal or straight into your bank account from my Paypal account, so get back to me with your Paypal email or bank details where you will like the funds to be credited and i can get the funds sent asap. thanks. \"

Who in their right mind would buy a car without seeing even a picture of it??
