Default Authenticity

Well, just as information, the window sticker is definitely not real.

Their cars appear to be as real as the real estate above the belt line and below the hinge on their ad presenters.

I compared it to my photos from the blood money cars and it looks to be a different car, since they made some interior changes.

(4/21/18 EDIT: The VINs match so it is the blood money car)

I see it was at the Leake auction / OKC earlier this year. Was pictured in the latest American Car Collector mag as "not sold" at $89,000 and reserve apparently set at $100,000. Observer / writer gave it strong marks for overall restoration quality with a few minor defects. Gave overall condition as a 1-.

Would seem to be a car worthy of some detective work to try to determine it's authenticity.

Subject VIN 136670K123620
Ryan's exactly correct, it's the 'Blood Money' car again...same/different bogus paperwork?
Lots of ads also auction events the last few years listing this car as an L78 w/ upgraded alum' heads, not necessarily an L89 car as current auction OP link above.
Click on the Hemming's article also previous SYC thread links below for more.
