If that car is a genuine COB car, then its number, 5998, has been quoted incorrectly.
COB/COX cars' numbers start with 60xx ....so don't know what the story is on this one. The seller quotes from the Registry, but doesn't show an ID plate.

Cheers,
Glen

The ACOC site says the car is recognized by the club as a replica, completed in 1995.

From my point of view the old pictures are not related to the black car.
-> Oil Cooler opening

It is a nice car but as confirmed by LMH not "old" as many little details are OK but not period correct.

I thought their description was pretty odd. There was no actual car. Only a show frame with running gear. If it was anything, it was probably a T-bucket if the article is correct.

What a story nonetheless!
