66 Pony VIN missing, should I have left it alone
I am a new member, have visited often but would not join because I did not have a Mustang at present. I owned a 66 convert as my first car in 70 and a 65 a few years later. with the kids all moved on I decided to purchase a 66 coupe that I ran across. It is a nice car, good cond and new interior.
My problem as is concerns the VIN. I purchased this car from a local investigator for the Sherriff Dept. it was her brothers and he was killed in 05 after working on car. been in shop and covered all these years. ok my problem is I purchased the car with a report run in my presence by the DEPT with the NCIC. the car came back not stolen and no lein. I plan to keep this car and it must have had some replacement before painting because door and driver fender vin not matching the report vin. if my plans are to keep and do some minor customizing then this is not a real problem except to me is it. thanks for any input.
