Indeed looks very complete (except for the Road Wheels....ugh) but I'm thinking $55-65K and several busy years to get it right. I hope someone has the moxie to restore this good example.

Interesting: My VIN is 8868 higher that of this car, but the Order Number is only 77 higher. Could this be something from the "125 Conundrum", meaning all the Hursts had their Order Numbers assigned at the same time such that they're all sequential, regardless when they rolled down the line?

Comments?
 
David and I were just talking about that. Just one.

We're wondering if it's original. The BS would let us know it's not a "Challenger" addition. It looks pretty correct to me.
 
Pretty much guaranty its not an original equipped car. However since the cars been sitting around long enough it is probably an original SFGT tip added from a time when they were still obtainable. Other one might be in the trunk.

No.... but kind of.
If you study package car VON assignments, you will find blocks of cars where the VIN and VONs align, but often, the blocks are not in sequential order. You can also find gaps in VIN and VON assignments making one wonder if a specific VIN or VON was actuality even used.

I haven't studied the Hurst assignments in detail but based on my experience with '69 A12 cars ( a larger data set), you could have:

VIN. VON
100101 J99150
100102 J99151
100103 J99152
100104 J99153
100105 J99154
Both VIN and VON track consecutively.

150100 J99127
150101 J99128
150102 J99129
150103 J99130
150104 J99132
Higher VINs than previous block but lower VONs and one car out of order.

One also has to consider that 'regular car' VINs we assigned inbetween the blocks of package cars. That affects VIN and VON assignments. To get a clear picture of actual assignment and production, it takes a large data base of cars. Simply tracking only the Hursts (or 6-bbl cars, or Superbirds, or Road Runners or Chargers, or any other sub group) doesn't give you the big picture of how they fell in line with total production. You need to look at them in context of the whole plant.

So generally:
Package car VONs will escalate at a similar sequential rate as VINs, but not always. You will see regressions.
Package car VONs can track sequentially with VINs but not always.

Also: Assignment gaps exist.

More data and credible research is always better. Save tags and other documents whenever possible.

This car was sold to Unique Classic Cars from our very own Rusty Foster. He was on an episode of Dirty Old Cars on History channel (s1 e5). Recognized him the second he was on camera, but he sealed it when he couldn't help but plug his dancing champion past.

In the episode, they claimed it sold for $14k.
