Re: [GFS] Build Sheet ?s

Yes Mark, there is a handwritten "F" preceding Dan's P29 engine number -
I guess, pending hearing from others, that's how they id'd the Fury
I didn't want to mention the handwritten "F" to see what kind of reaction
got from others - didn't know who wrote the "F" in?!.

Dan's VIN is 22291705, which is appropriately Evansville, same as all
Fury's.  Richard, you say it is not a Fury - why do you say that?  Dan's
body # is 404-E-1838 which certainly tracks in sequence with the VIN and
motor # of 211841.  All THOSE #s seem to match perfectly.

Any other thoughts?
