What a horrible (or interesting) trim line: 1900-65A. Who in their right mind would order that? I think it also has a performance rear axle too which means it is almost certainly a retail order.

 

Haha, my curiosity got the better of me and I had to look it up. OMG terrible.

Yes. I've joked with Leo Pruneau about that, if that was the inspiration for the HX Sandman stripes and LX SS stripes!

Just saw this on EBay. LC GTR or XU1 body tag at least (says tags not tag).

I just grabbed the BODY tag image. 1179 Platinum Metallic. The marks next to the 48X stand out.

The Pagewood VIN tag does not belong with the 1/71 Compliance Plate.

The Body ID tag most likely belongs with the Compliance Plate rather than the VIN Tag, but who knows, it may not belong with either tag.

Mario,

now has relisted the Tags for $1,000,000 :lol:

 

Even though some numbers are hidden,

 the damage to the tags are evidence.

Those tags are obvious fakes. Just have to compare to originals. What I don’t understand is why the ADR plate has HOLDEN in the middle on a blank plate?

The worry with those reproduction VIN tags is in 20 or 30 twenty years time when many of our experts are no longer around, all a sudden faked cars become real examples.

That is an interesting car. Unusual to be Papaya with that trim on an S, also with a performance rear axle. At least I think it’s a performance rear axle (will have to check). 3.36 behind L20 M20 was the performance rear axle for LH Gpack and you never saw it elsewhere in LH with that engine/box.

I checked this one out, it is definitely optioned with a performance rear axle, so it is a Retail or Dealer or Special (internal) order vehicle. Also being in Papaya and a 4spd. This is a more interesting car to me than an SLR5000 as it is most likely a single digit or at least low digit build configuration. It'd be the equivalent of finding a HQ Belmont sedan optioned with 202, 4spd, buckets, performance rear axle in a bright colour like Purr Pull. Going to see if we can find it as there can't be many L20, M20, GV4 optioned LX B69 complianced in the same year let alone month, be lucky to be one (this car).

Not sure if these have been put here before. Nothing special but does have an error on the BODY ID plate model code that is a cool thing.

 

PSN is L187174. Painted in that lovely shade of Covert Beige!
