[DML] Re: Question about SSI numbers



Regardless of what the caption says, being that the photo is taken at
the docks, I think it's more likely that 1897 is the 1000th car
*shipped*. Looking at the shipping manifests, the cars were not
shipped to the states in the exact order they were built. Many earlier
VIN cars got shipped much later on as they QC's them there at the
factory or kept early cars there for development/company car purposes.

I think it's a very good bet that the number/letter on the foam
shipping block reflects the VIN/trans type.
