I have checked everywhere but under the fender for the VIN ... what if the one on the door is the only one?
It came from the factory with one on the inner fender. Possibly on both sides. If they are missing you have a big problem.
Somebody put a 68 door on it which is why the VIN on the door does not match the title.
If there are no VINs in the engine compartment I would get a stamp kit off ebay and stamp your number in the proper place. While this is illegal IMO you have to consider the spirit of the law versus the letter of the law. The letter of the law says you are not supposed to stamp them because you might be commiting fraud. In this case you have no intent to commit fraud so the spirit is satisfied.
If you get the DMV involved it will be nothing but trouble. They will probably not register your car and might impound it.
