hi-po registry

Postby kobila1 » Sun May 07, 2017 4:52 pm

I'm selling my K-code and a potential buyer wants the VIN# to verify it on the registry. Is this something I should do and does any one have access to the registry if they have the VIN# but not a car registered? Thanks.

If you have a serious buyer, the VIN number is necessary to verify if the kar is genuine. Anyone registered on this site can search a VIN number to see if it is listed in the Registry. Keep in mind that there are many genuine K Code Mustangs that are not listed in the Registry. We make every effort to encourage anyone who has information regarding VIN numbers that are not yet listed to contact MARV to submit the VIN number.

SixT5HiPo.....Thank you for your response. I will tell the potential buyer that he must be registered to access the registry.
I suppose if he isn't he may know someone who is. I just needed to know it was a legitimate request.

You are correct. I guess it's not such a secret society as I thought.Just kidding. For some reason I did think it was more private.
The info. it reveals is pretty basic I guess. Thanks for the reply.

I didn't know the VIN Search worked that way. I'm always "logged in" when I use it.

Yes that is pretty basic info. About the only thing you learn is what state it was in when it was registered. I thought that when I submitted mine to the registry I entered the data plate info too. That info, I think is in the hipo book registry, don't know if that info can be found on this hipo site.
Now, if I google my VIN, I get a hit on this site. http://www.early-mustang.com/userrunner ... ?goto=1359
That you can see has non K cars as well, and the data plate info for some of the cars. I do not where that info came from. Maybe I registered there and don't remember. There is 782 K cars on the site. Google your VIN, see if it pops up.

The information that you pulled up here is actually from the "In Search Of Mustangs" book by Jim Smart and Jim Haskell.

Just to play the devils advocate, the information in the HiiPo registry is supplied in a similar way as the info in the SAAC Shelby registry. It all comes from owners, and for the most part is unverified. I view the registry as a nice indicator of fact and legitimacy, not absolute proof of anything.

Also worth noting the registry isn't maintained as I have been trying since 2010 to get a change made.

Does anyone know Marv and perhaps why I haven't heard from him yet? I updated the K-code registry with my Kar's vin and haven't heard anything in a couple weeks.

A couple of weeks ?? ?? ?? Try waiting a couple of years. As already pointed out, it's not being maintained.
Even the SAAC registries only come out every 10 years or longer

ZRay,
You might be pinging. And perhaps Marv should be fired. ;)
