RE: [DML] Re: Black Vin plates

Ok I knew there was something different when I glanced at the plate on
16879.  I didn't look at 3461 until this morning.


Thanks James

Cars from VIN 1000 or so on, IIRC, have VIN plates the same color as
the dash.

The significance comes on the 15XXX and 16XXX VIN's that have dash VIN
plates with no pop-rivets, they are just glued on. This is because all
the 15XXX and 16XXX VIN's are really 10XXX and 11XXX VIN's (1982
models) that were given new, later 1983 model VIN numbers so they
would not appear to be a year old already by the time that got here to
the states to sell. The 20XXX VIN's were the cars that were partially
completed when the factory closed and Consolidate went in and finished
them. Their VIN plates are pop-riveted on.

Anything different or did it represent a KAPAC car?
