Sure, but, the only folks who will have historical interest are those who know such thing existed.
Consider this, in 1966, there were over 600,000 Mustangs made, in fact this was the best selling year for the Mustang, ever. Various special editions and trim packages were offered, notably the Shelbys. One, however, is considered one of the rarest, and most recognized names: the Hertz Rent-a-Racer Shelby. You see this car at a car show, and you say wow, that's a rare one. People know it by name, know the story. That hertz black-and-gold scheme has become key and even made it today's Mustang paint options. In every sense of the word, the Hertz Rent-a-Racer Shelby has huge historic interest. 999 of these cars were produced.
Sitting next to this car, at the car show, is another 1966 Mustang: the Mustang High Country Special. Not a Shelby, not a fastback, but still a beautiful car. Custom paint color and decorative badge and a few other trim improvements. It doesn't gather near the attention that the Hertz-rent-a-racer does, for better or for worse. 333 of these cars were produced.
Tell me, honestly, which one of these cars would you consider more historically interesting? Quick poll, who has heard of the Hertz Rent-a-Racer Mustang? Who has heard of the unarguably rare-er High Country Special Mustang?

Yep, mine matches the VIN# as well, and the NCM badge comment was meant for tarepas, i just am too slow at replying to the person that my reply gets lost... whatever, i suck at foruming.... My point is, even though they made 500 (in my case) 550 (in yours) of them, it does have a badge and a vin # to go with it. Certainly not as rare, but perhaps worth more so-called "historical interest" in the future. Or people may forget about it completely while the Arctic Edition or whatever becomes the well known rare one.
