    Am I reading this correctly?

    00468 was sold at the Leake auction just 2 months before the Mecum auction?

    Interesting.

    I think old Dana Mecum has got some serious 'splainin' to do. (But, of course, he won't).

    Who is throwing stones?

    All that is happening is that we are asking questions.

    Now with respect to the reasons why it wasn't discussed much a while ago, you pretty much provided the answer yourself - it flew under the radar. I can't recall seeing much coverage of any of the Leake auctions, even in the SCM.

    I think any further information will have to come from the seller, or the buyer.

    I wish that car was near me, and I was allowed to do an in depth inspection of the chassis number. There is a technique that I have used to restore serial numbers on guns, motorcycles, automobiles, and other items. I would remove the paint down to the bare steel. Then polish the area around the number until it is mirror smooth. Then I would etch the area with a solution called Frye's Reagent. One of two things will happen; the original number will be visualized, or if the original number was welded over and smoothed, the weld will be visualized. My experience with the California Highway Patrol is that if a chassis number or VIN number is changed or obscured, the automobile will be seized until the proper owner can be determined. I would expect that other States would do the same. That car stinks, and I wouldn't touch it for free.
