I never heard of CMC using IM hinges but mine is a 1988 kit --- so no id at all on hinges. Indeed CMC did buy up IM Speedster molds, tooling and guess other stuff in 1979. The Manf Id that IM put on passengers side door frame was just a a foil sticker that often get removed during a repainting. The 200 miles is very unusual if IM built it in 1980. It isn't unusual for a CMC to site for years unfinished - still some in crates. Not sure how one imports a CMC kit into Canada though. Wonder what the title says and where the '65 VW chassis came from. Sure is a mystery!
