Isn't MM Royal Plum paint?   I love that color when it's done right.  Warm over that 6 banger with a cam and a clifford intake and it could be a really nice cruiser.  I like it.

Question, do the numbers match on the cowl tag begin 124 and the door jamb tag begin 123? As I understand vin 123 is 6 cylinder and 124 is v8 or am I confused?

The two digit year ("67," "68," or "69") was followed by a five-digit "ST" body style code, e.g. 12437. The first two digits of the style code are the model code ("12") and the last two digits are body code ("37" for coupe and "67" convertible).
While the Fisher style code is often confused with the first five digits of the VIN, the two codes are different because of the different meaning of the third digit. In 1967, the third digit of the style code was set to "4" for standard interior or "6" for custom interior (e.g. a style code for a 67 convertible with custom interior would be 12667). In 1968-69, the third digit was fixed at "4" for all models (L6 and V8) and had no meaning.

Remember that the "Style" number on the cowl tag and the "VIN" number on the hinge pillar or instrument panel are two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT numbers; the "style" number on the cowl tag was assigned by Fisher Body, and it will change on 67's as noted above. The VIN number was assigned by Chevrolet much later in the process, and a "3" for the third digit will ALWAYS mean a six-cylinder engine, and a "4" for the third digit will ALWAYS mean a V-8 engine.

The 'N' on the stainless VIN plate looks more like an 'H' or a 'M' than an 'N'... (to my eyes)???   Is that representative of the '67 VIN plates?   I'm not questioning that the VIN goes with the car, just the 'clarity' of the VIN plate (It's clearly an N on the PoP)...

Good eye, Kelly.  Maybe the right fender was replaced.  It looks like the antenna lead-in cable is hanging below the dash in one of the photos with the interior still in.  Also, the cowl tag shows 2R = U80 rear speaker.
