It looks questionable.

It is a fact that VIN N100002 did not have a body tag.

Do not like the cowl tag at all...looks like rivets never punched also???

Any opinions?

I asked him - David made up the tag. There was no tag originally.

He also tells the story like all the parts were with the car, but they weren't. It's possible those parts are for the car, but that's not a given.

I agree with this except I'm not seeing the evidence of different configurations. Chevrolet reputedly sent it with a BB and he tested it that way.

This car was always a bit of conjecture, IMO. I don't think there's work orders that solidly tell a story, so it's pieced together (both the story and the car).

The breaking point on the car for me was when a guy tried to convince David Tom that there was a Small Block with a Crossram- installed at Norwood- with the car being pushed down the line. That's total BS, but soon the configuration content timeline blurred to include the factory where the car was discussed as some sort of performance factory pilot project.

The car applied to attend the 2013 Norwood Gathering but the retirees rejected the car.

The CrossRam story was introduced to the hobby by a guy from Tacoma WA, in 2007 over at Nasty Z..a guy with only 3 posts on the board.

I was giving the car the benefit of the doubt until the story got totally ridiculous.
