    No, Dylan, I don't have the serial numbers of the three known clones. Sorry. [8D]BP

      No problem, thanks anyways! I'll call Mr.Lawlis and see if he has them. Wouldn't that be quite a find, if it was one of them! [:O]

          I got some more info on the car (Looking at the P.O I am) and it IS a clone. Ole well, the search was fun, and I still hope to get a chance at the car someday. I will be asking more questions on the P.O soon, and post all my findings on it as well. [8D]

            Wait! I found something interesting on the P.O, that I didn't notice before. It was delived to a Ann J Husvar; in the Engineering Department! That is what it has in the destination slot, and it was shipped via the Engineering Department! Ok, if that doesn't sound interesting, I don't know what does.

            What do you guys think? Maybe this was modified straight from the factory with that!!

              Also, what are options:

              AC2834
              AC2858
              AC2747
              XAC2688

              And what does P5747 Artic Tiara paint scheme look like? I'm guessing that is Artic white (Love it) with gold fins, am I correct?

              Edit: Sorry for all the posts, I'm really excited right now. I had surgery as well, so with the drugs I got to take for that, and this excitement, I'm a little more jittery and excitable than usual.[:I] Wasn't really paying attention to that until just now, and I'll do my best to keep from doing this again.

                I sent a email to a relative of the original owner today, hopefully something will come up.

                  XAC2688
                  AC 2747 is a (pushbutton?) radio. AC2688 is an internally controlled antenna. I can't find the other two.

                    AC2834 is Climatizer. AC2858 is Back-Up Lamp Kit.

                    (Matthew: FYI: If you cannot find an AC number in the "normal" Body Parts Book where most AC numbers are located, try the Chassis Parts Book. Some, but not many, are located there.

                    For example, the Back-Up light kit is in Electrical, and exhaust extensions are in Exhaust, even though they are Accessory Numbers.) [8D]BP

                      Thanks guys!

                      Little more learned info. The person (May it was for his wife or something, or maybe they both worked there) worked mainly in the interior department. Interesting! So, if it was delivered to the Engineering Department, and he worked in interiors, maybe something came together there.

                        It would not be the first time we heard of the Factory workers having their "Buds" add a few options to their own cars that just MAY have been FORGOTTEN on the Production Order and Invoice! [^]

                          Perhaps Richard Quinn can help again with this one. He already solved the mystery with the 1956 Golden Hawk that had the engineer's name on a streamer attached to the firewall. I wonder if this 'Ann' in engineering was an interior designer of some sort, much as Dorothy Draper was at Packard. If possible, you may want to carefully lift those seats and look for any 'EXP' tag(s) affixed to the underside of them, or any other signs that it could be some kind of prototype interior design. (The build sheet does read 'gold vinyl' to be installed on the factory, but in this Ann Husvar's possession, there could have been some sort of agreement to try out different interior treatments with her consultancy and 'approval')

                              Thanks Craig, that is very interesting! I never thought of that! I'll see if he can do so, and I'll keep this updated.

                                Oh, and for the people on the chat last night, and that are wondering about that different engine block and heads in the car; here is the answer. I mentioned that, and he went and looked at the car. It DOES have the original block, but later high compression heads! [:O] If those cars had only 275 H.P from the factory with the low compression, imagine what it would be now! Maybe 280-290ish, what do you think? I have no idea now much more it would give, but interesting non the less!
