    Dodge Viper Mamba Info

    Hi Guys

    Hope all is good?

    I was wondering someone can help me with info regarding my recently purchased 2005 Dodge Viper Mamba Edition.
    So far i've recieved information from the original dealer who sold the car but I cannot find the info regarding which # out of 200 my Mamba is.
    The sticker on the centre console has also been removed sometime in the past.

    VIN number is 1B3JZ65Z15V500975


    Thanks

    Mike

    I have a mama addition also and I’ve done some research which is pretty quick to be achieved.
    you cannot tell anything by the Vin number the number edition of the “mamba” simply is random, no way to verify

    What color is the car?

    @pokeyl - its the 2005 model, so the silver one.

    @jon B - thanks, i am. would have just been nice to put a number next to it

    @wytsnke - i've also been doing some research and found alot of info but indeed without the random Mamba edition number.

    thanks

    Once the tag has been removed there is no public documentation that shows the # of. The only way to find out is to locate the original owner in hopes he/she remembers. You can call a Dodge Dealer and they won't have a clue. In most cases like this, even the Viper Historical society has no clue. If the Viper was used by the marketing department, they may still know, you just have to find the right person to talk to (not holding my breath). It is my impression Dodge/FCA/Chrysler/SRT used the drunkest person on shift to determine what number went on what Viper and the second most drunk person on shift to documented it...

    With all that said, find the original owner, and ask, it's the only real hope

    I have a silver 2005 #94, so you know it's not that one

    Good luck with the search!

    HISSSSStory tidbit:

    Lulu, the CAAP craftsperson in charge of delivery scheduling, randomly assigned most dash-plaques, by simply drawing them from a small cigar-box looking container. # 1 - 10, and last 5, were usually held for a while to see if dealers or Dodge Marketing asked for them. Or if specific numbers (like #49 ) were pre-requested by execs or or VIPs or clubbers.

    I actually watched the process as Lulu selected some numbers for 2006 FED coupes back in Aug 2005.

    That means anyone can turn their car into a Mamba with a two tone interior and a sticker....

    Wonder If there's a few fakes going around

    Actually they can NOT. The VIN’s are clearly identified as Mamba. It’s the # of that is unclear. I know the Final Editions are attempted to be authentic, so anything can be attempted.
