cheers! This is the vin off paperwork all I’ve got to go off so farWelcome to the site! Better confirm that VIN is correct..
not a good vin as in non matching to a 69? Will have to check cowl out cheers !As stated above that's not a good VIN for a '69. While you're looking, get us the info off the cowl tag.
thanks a lot for that so car is in fact 68? Based off tag I.D?1 ~ Chevrolet
34 ~ 300 Deluxe, or Nomad, 8-cylinder
27 ~ 2-door coupe
8 ~ 1968
G ~ Framingham, Massachusetts
129840 ~ serial number
ohh I see so may have been swapped at some stage over the years then? InterestingThis is probably the 15th - 20th time over the years that I've seen 69 Chevelles with 68 VIN's
these are the numbers I was given from themWow Good Luck The Auction house should have known and disclosed...or not...?
yes it seems to be and odd ballSadly it seems to me then the Auction house did not know what they were selling you. The picture shows us a 69 Coupe possibly a Malibu although there is no script so maybe a 300. No post
I am not sure how it is to register a car with a different VIN in Australia. But if it comes to cost point the finger at the Auction house for misrepresenting the car being sold.
If you have no issues and it is easy to rectify then you have no real worries...other than the tag and number is from another car, and that car could be already insured somewhere else or that that car may be stolen with a new vin number from another car that looks similar...
Unless the dash was from a 68 or the car was built as a 69 but is still a 68 frame and engine Etc with new body panels and I doubt someone would go through that much trouble.
have been in contact with auction company no word as of yetIF you haven't paid, don't. If you have then contact the auction house ASAP,
it appears the vin does match the registration paper work but Is registered as 68 not 69 so not sure if it’s been on purpose or a mistakeCar may well be a '68 underneath, all the items that make the '68 visually different from a '69 are interchangeable....front clips, door glass or entire door assembly's, taillight housings, bumpers.
A guy with a good '68 main body shell and a couple '69 parts cars could easily put this together.....it's a half century old car, lots of time for things to be swapped in there.
Biggest part to change would be the dash assembly IMO
You need to make sure the VIN on the body just matches your paperwork Title VIN number.
If it does, no worries other than body trim isn't visually correct for the year of the VIN.
