I know I've mentioned it a few times (maybe not here), but this is not an exact science as getting the entire MDH is problematic.  In fact isn't pretty dam hard

I now have all the build dates now and I'm surprised at what I'm seeing.  Some days they did a lot others a single Viper

This is pretty cool

Let the assigning begin

So everyone knows, this is my process.  There were 3 Vipers built 01/10/1992, VIN's 1-3.  They will get build numbers 1-3.  I put them in date order first and then VIN order second.  Out of all the 92's I only have one complete MDH (damn).  Hopefully those that are interested are OK with theCheerss

Cheer's

Total build numbers for 92 were 250?  and they built 3 in one day?  I understood (was told) that there was a serious problem with the clamshell hoods and that was what limited production to the low numbers?

Really stressful day on 08/18/1992......... ONE.  That was after none from 07/31/1992 - 08/17/1992, then waited till 08/24/1992 before they did another 4.  This is facinating....

So if they could build 45 in one day that would seem to support the hoods coming in in batches and indicate a supply problem.

They couldn't build 45 in one day, but if the entire plant just installed hoods for one day that number would seem to be appropriate.  Have you been to the Connor assy plant Jeff?  I realize that the first few years were assembled at the Mack plant.

Wash VCA got a trip to the Mack plant because their bus driver didn't know what he was doing.  They arrived at the Connor plant about 3 minutes in front of our bus.  Interesting place.

We toured the Saleen plant where the Gen 4 hatches, doors and body panels were assembled (wiring, panels etc) and painted before being shipped to the Connor assembly plant.  The Saleen plant built Mustangs beside the Viper parts.  We got a tour of their engine shop and blower room etc.  That was pretty cool.

Luck is what you make of it my friend.  $200 would buy you a return plane ticket to Detroit to check it out yourself.  They have/had some Historic cars lined up and hoods covered with signatures there.  JonB (partsrack.com) would know what's happening since he knows the people there and could probably arrange a tour if you wanted one ...
