Have a buddy that has a yellow one he bought maybe 10+ years ago. Ls motor md4 as well. Ripped that transaxle out about 6 times with him and i dont recall ever seeing the vin on that car. Ill ask him and see if he knows where. I do know that its one heavy heavy sum itch!! Broke his frame and stretched the a arm and trailing arm mounts probably 5 times. Until they updated it and put in all the gussets to help and been good for a few years now.

Probably 20-30 chassis were ever built. If it is the dual sport it’ll have a X between passenger and driver compartment, those chassis are brick shit houses, and won’t bend. They all ride amazing however, Justin was and is an amazing fabricator, just a shoddy businessman. I had a dual sport i never completed and a real good buddy had the orange with flames and a blown sbc that used to hate on all the big dollar cars till about 2005. Was a fast mother fucker.

Pretty sure those cars didn't have vin's stamped in the frames. If they were registered they will have a small metal sticker with an ADOT number on it. Usually attached to the frame by the drivers seat. (that's if it was registered in AZ)

Supposedly was reg in CA, but paperwork lost. I'll start pulling panels to be sure. Off to adot/mvd to register it, we live in Parker.

Got lucky, actually talked to the owner of Predator. They tagged all chassis twice, between the seats, and a hard to find under the pass side of dash!

I've worked on a couple of them and never saw them before. Actually had a chassis all stripped down to powder coat.

Are they still building these? I looked close at them awhile ago- seemed like they were super popular and now dot really see or hear much about them.
