Re: Confidential Vins On Arlington Cars

My 70 Arlington car didn't have a con vin on the firewall or the frame and believe me I looked. Both were blasted to bare metal.

Re: Confidential Vins On Arlington Cars

Look at the top of the cowl tag. There are numbers stamped in the metal I just can't make out what they are.

I can't make it out on my monitor but it doesn't really look "factory" to me.

What do you mean by That? That firewall hasn't been touched. This car has been in the family from day one and My cousin who purchased it brand new wouldn't know anything about trying to fudge numbers ,Heck he didn't know what a used 70 chevelle SS was worth ( NO COMPUTER ACCESS) and and I felt bad that he even wanted to sell it. The car left Arlington TX went to Carlsbad NM and now I have it in Albuquerque NM the car has the protect-o-plate everything matches. But when I get back to the shop I'll get a better look.

Thanks Chris

I see something, perhaps press stretch marks, but I don't think they are numbers or letters.

Dan,

Your probably correct it might not be nothing but some scratches but I'll check it out and let everyone know,But the first time I saw them it sure did look like numbers to me.

Looks like scratches to me too.

I cropped it and blew it up.
