Dear ZLP,
Thanks for this. The 'new'  partial VIN I quoted above is indeed one of the identical pair of stampings on the bulkhead. The dashtop VIN is as per previous older posts.

There's no sign of oddball welding anywhere else on the structure, so my surmise is that this is one complete coupe chassis with a possible dash change  -  for whatever reason (and as you say  -  could be a can of worms). The car certainly left the USA in 1993 and was sold on in the UK in 1994.

Anyway, thanks for your speedy reply. I live in West London about 6 miles from Hammersmith/Shepherds Bush. Great place and very lively socially  -  I organise a monthly London race-drivers meeting at a pub less than a mile from there. What business were you in over here ?
Best regards,
Nick

I worked in construction, various locations over 5 or 6 years from Liverpool Street to Chiswick, Paddington, White City and good 'ol She Bu. In later years, lived just off Uxbridge Road; could see Loftus Road stadium out the upstairs windows, and used to drink in a great pub on Uxbridge Rd - The Askew - loved the English "Bitter" in pints, and they used to make the best pizzas right there in the pub. Ah, it's all coming back to me now!

I would look under the dash at the underside of the dash vin and look at the rivets. Original rivets are star shaped as opposed to just a round rivet. I would get to the bottom of this before I put a bunch of quid into it only to find out it is stolen!

If the entire dash is exchanged, doesn't the VIN complete with star rivets go with it?   From what I've read so far, it sounds like that's a possibility..  but I agree that having *mismatched* VINs raises a HUGE red flag... people don't do that for no reason at all.... and most of the possibilities spell *ILLEGAL*...
