This thread very much sums up many of the issues with the car.

The whole story doesn't make much sense from purchase to restoration.

The car has an L78 trim tag and is too early of a build, in order to be an factory L78.

The NicKey Registry, Inc. inspected the car and paperwork and found some of the documents to be fake and/or made up. Especially the three documents where NicKey "Nicky" is spelled incorrectly.

I have a legitimate early 1967 Nickey Warranty Book and Nickey used a stamp with the dealers name on it, not hand written dealer name.

I like the 'K78' option on the window sticker!

&quot;Some of the documents&quot; Were some of them actually real?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Lynn</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: 1967Z28</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The serial number was in the 102xxx range </div></div>

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but weren't even the very early released cars (i.e. May on cars that went to magazines, etc.) tagged with an August body tag? That would explain an August tag car being in Riverside in May 66.</div></div>
Not with that high of a VIN! The VIN matches the tag.
