Re: NICB reports Available in April 2014?
I know we are lucky up here in Canada with the Zapora reports, but there was a situation in 1969 that affected the Delivered Dealership, compared to the selling Dealership.
I don't know if this was an issue in the US, but interesting.
Back in late 1969 when the new model Camaro was due to be released, the 1969s were not selling well. Everyone was waiting to see what the new car would look like.
The local high performance dealer. Maurice Carter (of Trans am Sedan fame) had all of the excess Camaros from all over Ontario shipped to his Hamilton Ontario location. There were cars from all over Ontario. They eventually sold from his location. I purchased one at that time, it was originally from a Dealer hundreds of miles away. As well there were a lot of strange combos, low option and high option and strange color combos.
As I said this might throw up some questions if the NICB report shows the car was delivered to a certain dealer, and the owners knows the car sold from another dealer.
I don't know if this was a common practice in the US, but it did happen here.
I have owned 3 69 Z/28s: Garnet Red 30,000 mi unrestored.
