Not too much info there.

Maybe it has a few numbers painted on the quarter glass, drag car?   shruggy

Be kinda neat if he did find one of those.  When I travel through the SE and stop at salvage yards I usually ask if anyone knows of any old race cars that were scrapped.  Haven't found anything yet except for a drag car in AZ and a few dirt trackers in NM.

I'm under the impression that if it had a VIN stamped on it somewhere that it isn't a race car from Nascar anyways. They just used the same basic frame and put a new skin on them when it was time to race. So there wouldn't be a VIN stamped on the radiator core support, or the trunk lip or anything like that. I can ask a buddy that I know who used to work for Buddy Baker.

I've read that they were pulled off the line before they got their street identity hence the (body in white).

I had always heard that the body in white cars were the factory drag cars. That they didn't get a VIN either. I could be wrong though. Do the 68 Hurst Cuda's and Darts have VIN's?

The vin codes (XX or BO) were likely to satisfy the ruling bodies as much as anything.  Remember, these were all "stock" cars in NHRA SS and NASCAR.
I have a pic of Sam MacQuaig's 66 as a body in white getting ready to have its rollcage fitted.

Correct.   My understanding is that after 1964, there were no stock cars built from an assembled torn down production car.  After that it was all body in white, and eventually, built up from components.  After 1964, no factory VINs on a Mopar stock car.
