Check to see if the car is stolen or how the VIN breaks down, engine code,
body code?

Due to privacy most states won't give you past history of owners,
police may be able to run the VIN to see if its stolen.

I haven't had any luck finding any info on mine before the guy that sold it to me. I bought it 6 years ago and he owned it for 30 years before that so I would have to go back to 1977. No luck here.

You might want to try this, I know 10 years ago here in NC, I done a title search on our 67. I have a good friend that is a retired HP and he told me to tell them at the DMV that you need title info for restoration and history/documentation purposes.

You might try that and see what they say.

You can research past ownership of vehicles in Kansas for a measly $10. You will receive copies of all micro-fiched titles from when ( or if ) your vehicle was registered in KS. Other states may offer the same service. Dean

What state are you in? If the car has a CLEAR title, you are OK. The dataplate
and title VIN MUST match. The other data on it is color,trim, build date, etc.

Then you buy a new warranty plate that says whatever you want it to say.

The TITLE must match the VIN(s) stamped on the engine compartment ledges. The data plate even says "not for title or registration", so it does not NEED to match -- it's nice if it does. Lots of Mustang have the wrong data plate or no data plateat all. Dean

Hell, my mustang is titled according to the data plate...has been for several owners apparently. I cannot find looking back into the history (I ran a vehicle history report on it, from its own state) where the switch was made. The VIN on the engine compartment ledges doesn't seem to pop up ANYWHERE no matter where I've looked.

I figure one of these days I will get it corrected, but in the meantime it's not bothering anyone, I don't plan to sell her, etc....neither VIN has ever shown up as salvaged or stolen so who the hell knows how it happened, it's nearly a 50 year old car...lots can happen in 40+ years.

I called left and right all over the place trying to explain what happened to the proper authorities, how we found out the vins didn't match only some time later and answers ranged from "doesn't matter, so long as it's titled to something" to "I'll call you back" but they never did.
