Sorry, but no, your friend did not just buy CSX 3122. He bought a fresh build to which someone has fraudulently appended the 3122 chassis number. It has been listed in the Registry as having been destroyed for many years, and  low-hanging fruit like this brings the crooks out of the woodwork like maggots. It would be fascinating to see exactly what the claimed logbook for the car lists as its history. Regardless of what it may say, it's horse manure. Trust me.

When you say "Rebuild Frame", does that mean the Frame was REPLACED or was it straightened out and REPAIRED?

Step 1: check car

Step 2: buy car

Failure to follow steps in order can lead to surprise, disappointment, anger and financial distress

Yes, it was Mayfield's. And of course people are trying to locate it. But it no longer exists.

I'm sure they just wanted to know from a knowledgeable Cobra person "what to look for" so they could just confirm it and not try and make sure the unearthed car had the items  ;)
