67 camaro vin location
« on: October 02, 2013, 08:16:11 PM »
Looking at buying a camaro where the vin is riveted to the left of the master cylinder. I thought 67's had the vin on driver side door frame.

JB,
  That is the trim tag location, however that is not a trim tag from a domestic 67 (just looks like a piece of metal punched with the some numbers,  124377 is all I can see) Check this site for '67 trim tag pictures and hidden VIN #'s.
  The car seems to be monkeyed with. Be carful before you lay out any money. and yes, '67 VIN's should be on the door jam. Any better pictures?

This is only other pic I got. He has title which shows vin of 124377N166208.

I'm just concerned why it's there instead of cowl tag.

VIN should be stamped on a plate riveted to the drive side, front door jamb area, near the interior light switch.  There are also hidden partial VINs under the cowl vent panel and on the firewall, under the heater box.  As stated that trim tag looks home-made unless it's some sort of foreign tag.  Still looks bogus, picture is not too clear.  Be careful.

If the car doesn't have the correct stainless steel VIN plate rosette-riveted to the driver's side door opening jamb that matches the title, pass on it. That thing on the firewall isn't a VIN plate, and also isn't a cowl tag - it' some kind of home-made thing.

X2 to what JohnZ and others have said...
You do mention that the seller has a title and the VIN matches what's on that fake tag, but....
Take a look HERE at this information from the Department of Justice.

Can you look on top of the cowl for the VIN stamped under the cowl grille ? That might clear the air a bit, but it could be difficult to get the owner to let you remove it. It doesn't look like a State plate, which would be affixed on the car if it was stolen/recovered/resold (usually has the State Of ______ stamped or headed on it). I've seen that done before, but look for the hidden VIN numbers if you can. Does look extremely bogus -

For curiousity's sake, it would be interesting to see the *real* VIN, but regardless of what it was, there's NO way I'd purchase such a vehicle....

Could be a state issued tag. Where is the car? Maybe you need to contact your local DMV to get more info on it. Car could have been slammed into where the original tag was or the car may have been in a salvage yard and returned to service. Lots of things to consider.

As someone posted earlier, every state issued VIN I've ever seen was identified as such...

Also, I don't think a state issued VIN resembles a cars original VIN in any way. Usually just a pre-stamped plate with with a number and state logo. Same type of plate that would go on a home made trailer, at least in Maryland.

Actually in several states if the original VIN is known it can be used, with exceptions, in the state issued VIN plate.  I think the first order of business is to remove the paint from the plate and find the hidden VINs.  Until these issues are sorted out, I would stay away.

If you google the vin number you can see the car when it was blue, with different tires and wheels. Same tinted windows and engine compartment with the 427 in it.
