Just for posterity, I'll mention that any KPGC110 code with a chassis # above the 200's is almost certainly a fake. These cars are getting valuable now so this will not be the last one we see.
Actually, that's not technically correct.
Nissan didn't actually sell
the first ten numbered bodies ( they were used as 'test mule' and 'crash test' cars, and were supposed to have been destroyed after that ) and the very lowest numbered KPGC110 to be sold was KPGC110-00011.
Then there were some gaps: KPGC110-00012 was not sold to the public, but KPGC110-00013 was
. Then there was a jump to KPGC110-00023 ( I'm told a 'special' customer reserved this significant body number before production... ) and then proper sequentially-numbered sales started at KPGC110-00051, and on up - without any gaps - until KPGC110-00245.
The fact that they go above KPGC110-000197 might initially surprise us, but it is explained by the gaps in numbering. Such gaps can be seen in other Nissan models of the same period, and are fairly well documented - so shouldn't be too much cause for concern.
The fact that every single one of the 197 KPGC110s sold to the general public was documented a long time ago should be it's own warning to fakers. Owners of real
cars are looking out for any 'lost' chassis that suddenly pop out of the woodwork, and if any such car does suddenly turn up from decades of oblivion then it had better have a good paper trail to back up its provenance.
Nothing wrong with lookalikes or replicas as long as they are honestly done, and nobody tries to pass them off as The Real Thing.
