Set No: 8860  Name: Car Chassis (Auto Chassis)

that it was sold under the name "Auto Chassis" in the United States. Source =
1982 USA Dealer Catalog: https://images.brickset.com/library/Catalogues/c82usdc.pdf

My primary concern is that US buyers looking for the set be able to find it under
that name.

Additional notes are not searchable, so that won't help the situation in
any way. My suggestion is to submit a name change request for the set using the
appropriate form:

https://www.bricklink.com/catalogReq.asp?itemType=S

Suggested name: "Car Chassis / Auto Chassis"

Cheers,
Randy

Hi Randy, thanks, I made the request. I'm guessing the above request can
be marked as "Complete" now (I included a message about an attached note in the
request, so this is superfluous).
