THis one seems legit to me.
I cringe though when I hear of dash frames, fender tags and other numbers being removed from one car and transferred to another.

I'm probably misunderstanding what you've wrote here

I was referring to two different scenarios. The topic here is different entirely from a situation where a pristine 318 car gets it's numbers cut out and replaced with an R/T VIN, fender tag and stampings. I did not mean to imply that this car had been subject to that, I was making a comparison of two different situations.

I was buying parts near Glenwood IA today. I ran across the fender tag to this car; I had it in my hand. I can pass on the info to the owner. The guy that has the tag just had it lying on his bench. He nabbed it back in the day when he was purchasing parts off the car.

This is some interesting stuff. Before the age of the internet, once a car was parted out, I doubt the pieces ever were put back together.   2thumbs

Ok...the numbers trans was found, now the fender tag is available and the original body is intact with the numbers in it. Why in the hell would the owner not want to get a vin tag re-popped to be able to put this car back on the streets??? sounds like a no brainer to me.

We were standing there shootin the shit after I bought a chally door from him. I told him that I was a charger guy, so he started telling me about a super solid 69 4 speed charger that he got parts off of back in the day. He said that he wished he would have purchased the shell, but it was sold when he went back to inquire about it. Nothing really stuck out at me until he said that he grabbed the tag off it. Then he was like, "as a matter of fact I think it's right here on the bench." He reached down and grabbed it. I thought of this thread.

Don't know...I sold it to a guy named James about 2 years ago. He went thru a divorce and had to sell everything, so this must be the new owner

If you are really interested in having the original parts to the car reunited, why not provide the owner of the body with the info of the owner of the trans?
