CSX4862
« on: July 25, 2019, 02:49:04 PM »
Getting close to purchasing CSX4862. I have seen pictures of the engine vin tag and certificates of authenticity but the car is missing the official Shelby plate the is usually affixed to the dash. Would Shelby American offer a replacement and should this concern me? Here is a link to the car with pictures, thanks

Looks like that Dash never had one.  I think they were Riveted on so there should be Holes in the Dash. Also, the 4000 series may not have had them.

 The 4000's do have dash plaques, at least mine does. This particular CSX is far different from what mine is, engine wise, dash layout,etc.

In looking @ dozens of CSX4000 series there seems to be a great variation in the dash layout; gauges, material, glove box, etc. My only question is, how could I get the dash plaque vin number replaced.

A lot of the ones I have seen are loose and left up to the owner to install. For example I haven't decided where to mount mine. I could see how one could get misplaced or kept as a souvenir when a car was sold.
