Well, Im the new owner of 666/1000. I don't really care for the number. However the badge is missing, but I have another one from my 92 VR4 that burnt years ago. No motor, no trans, no t-case, no-drive shaft, no ECU, no fuel pump, along with the tail lights. lucky, I have a stash of parts to put it back together.

The body is straight, and there is no rust. the seats have gone to shit with brittle leather, etc. I found it at Co Part in Dallas TX for 300 plus all their fees, so it came to 570. Then about 500 worth of fuel and hotel to come and get it.

I figure it will make a nice project car in the future, and being its 1 of 16 made in Kensington Grey its worth saving.

Hopefully I will post picture in the future as I restore it. So at least every one knows where its at now.

Good luck with the rebuild!

yes, 1 of 16 or 18 made. 1992 was the only year that came in KG. No sunroof, and it depends on what factory radio it had in it. That is the difference between if its 1 of 16 or 1 of 18. And I can only guess a number of them have been wrecked, parted out over the last 27 years, So that may only leave less than 10 cars.

So whats the ??? marks for ?

You mean it was 1 of 16 KG 1992 models that had no CD player and no sunroof? There were 226 total KG cars. click

It's 14 and 16, not 18. I only know bc I just picked up a KG, had recently seen this post, so I needed to know and mines 1 of 14.

Some folks like to keep the badge for sentimental reasons, its not linked to the VIN anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

that's one's opinion. Try telling the other 2500 owners the dash badge doesn't really matter.

It would be interesting to compare the VIN #s with the badge numbers, and see if there is any pattern Mitsu used when the cars were coming off the production line, or if some worker just went out to the parking lot and starting sticking badges on?

There is no badge correlation. The badges were not installed at the production line, as this project and vehicle was a US marketing program. They were installed in the port when they arrived in the US. They did just go up and down the rows putting them on, with no accounting for production order. The famous "number 3" was actually about the two-hundredth or so car made for 92.

There is a badge/VIN correlation list, but it is loosely constructed from data gathered here and other sources, and is far from complete. Maybe I had 1000 of the 3000 cars at some point.

People continuing to do things like remove them from the cars or move them to other cars causes the info to go out of date. I myself put a badge on a '92 that I bought without one. The badge came from another car that was scrapped.

It was definitely the latter. Give each guy a box with baggies of badges and key-chains and go to town.

As posted by Fuel, there were waaaaay more than only 16 KG cars, hence my confused emoji.

There were 226 total. Of the 226, only 30 were made without the sunroof. 14 and 16 made were with or without the premium radio. It appears the 92 Nile Black w/o sunroof is the rarest with only 8 being imported

Sweet. In 40 years when one comes up at Barret Jackson we can all drool over how rare that option package and color combo was. Or it'll never matter.

I'm glad you're saving the car though. I actually owned one of the non-sunroof KG cars. I had an aftermarket head unit in it though so it was probably one of a kind.

3009 were imported and those early 9 were pre-badged lol. Plus there were upwards of 30,000 vr4s produced from 1987-1992 lol.

Also I will happy take that 666/1000 badge off your hands, since you don't like it that much.

He said the badge was missing. I assume he only knows it was 666 based on the vin database
