How do I tell if I have an authentic Flathood?...
... is one
of the most common questions asked on mailing list, message boards, etc..
when talking about the 83 special edition. And im pretty sure there is
even more speculation about the "quick" ways to verify. Ultimately
the only way you can truly tell is by submitting your information to the
vcoa special edition coordinator Ray Parsons. You can get him contact
info off www.vcoa.org
However, with some input from around the world there has been a slight
set of standards we've all found in the cars.
You have a 90% chance of having an original flathood if:
Now, in the case where the cars info you're looking at doesn't fall between these standards, that doesn't mean its not real... go ahead and check it out with the registrar and if it is real... shoot me an e-mail with the new info to change and modify this calculation.Other observations:
There has also been a few other things that flathood owners have been able to spot that were common to multiple flathoods.
