Taken from the about the csk section:
There is one more important thing when you consider buying a CSK, the VIN number. They were all built to UK home market specifications and did not have any unique identifying feature in their VIN number as they all start SALLHABM7GA followed by a six-digit number within the normal Land Rover sequence, the numbers being around 460800. This VIN translates as a Range Rover three-door Estate 3.9 pi RHD 5-speed manual 1990 model year assembled at Solihull. The auto ones had a 3 instead of the 7 for the ninth digit. There are no identifying features in the registration details either as they are just recorded as Range Rover Efi Estates. Being a popular style it is not unknown for replicas to have been created so if it does not fit the pattern above it is not a CSK, especially if the limited edition number is missing

Hi Update on CSK 136. lt arrived today and looks ok! Require new head lining, repairs to some interior trim plus new upper tailgate. lt did come with some history, the guy l bought it from was a member of the range rover register and they confirmed it is a genuine CSK.lt was registered August 92, the last CSK to be registered,but as an unusable engine number. thats all for now will keep you posted of progress.Rob
