Air shocks and shackles? I foresee suspension o'haul. (If the rear end is tweaked up, chances are the front suspension will also need re-doing.)

A Marti report would tell you what order your CS was made in?? I never knew that.

Other than the vin, I don't see any indication of a vehicle sequence number on my Marti. How does this person know what number his build was?

Important dates, including build dates, are found in the Deluxe Marti's.

But none of that will tell you a build number, as he has quoted in his ad.

The build number is probably in the original window sticker and possibly the original purchase contract. The ad says they have the original purchase contract.

I have the Elite Marti report for my car which includes a copy of the window sticker. There is no mention of a build number. I also have the original bill of sale which has no build number. Not sure if that is what you mean by "original purchase contract".

Cool

I am pretty sure that there is no way to determine how many Cal Specials were built before or after a particular car. The Marti only tells how many were built with specific options not what order they were built in. The Eminger report from Ford doesn't include any info as well. I don't know where the seller is getting their info from.

Cheers,

Ron

I wonder if the 968 is a typo as further down he states that this is the 949 consecutive number produced (base on the last 3 of the VIN)

I have done all types of math and cannot see how he derives at the 968 figure,

-I say typo of his 949
