1970 "114898" Registered?
« on: January 08, 2017, 08:48:02 am »
Hi. I'm brandy new to this forum and looking to figure out how to obtain more information about the registry, these cars in general -and, whether or not VIN 114898 has ever popped up in discussion. I'm looking to do some research on the history of this car. It's a 1970 Mach 1 CJ, built in Dearborn, sold at a dealership in IL and I  believe last seen on the east coast (possibly Georgia). If anyone has any info, please let me know. Thanks!

Welcome! We don't have a car registered with that sequential unit number - sorry.

Bummer. Thanks for checking! How can the general population see what is or isn't registered? Is there a book we can buy? An on-line option we have to pay for? Other?

There is a registry book.

Chris and I are working on an update to the book, too. It should be available within a few months.

-->Scott, any update on the updated registry book? Any idea when it will be available?

We're still working on it and "within a few months" still sounds about right.

"We're still working on it and "within a few months" still sounds about right."    ----> Did the updated registry book become published and if so, how does one acquire a copy?
I'm still looking for information on VIN 114898

The "few months" thing didn't come together, but we're close now:

and here:

I'll be selling them directly from my company web site once we have them in-hand. Still nothing on 114898.
