    You're welcome, Allan. If you order the Production Record from The Museum, you'll also learn the day the order was written to build the car, the day it was built, the key numbers, and a few other interesting things that aren't in the July 1986 Turning Wheels article and records. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                Thats the thing though. The firewall number for the 64 Commander is a 64S-F4 number, meaning it was a six cylinder, 2 door sedan car. The engine number is a JTS 1612 number, which from the previous owner said it came from a rolled fully packaged 63 Hawk 63V29793. We emailed the fine folk at JTN who said the engine and subsequent is on their registry, no problem. Lemme correct myself here, after looking at the email in my big 'ol file of Super Lark stuff for my vehicle. The information on the Hawk could be found, but whatever has happened to the actual car has been forever lost. Its like I got a kidney, and I could tell you stats about the previous donor, but we don't know where they went after the surgery

                    That appears to be a reproduction serial number.
