The dash top is a reproduction. This means the dash VIN has been removed and re-attached at some point in the past.

Looks like someone has been busy since 2013.  That cowl number stamp was not like that in 2013.  It's a bad car with complete restamped DT.  Someone just called me about the car. 

I'll just leave it at that.

So, even without Jerry's blessing, I have torn this thing apart looking for any evidence of fakeness and find no reason to believe it's not the real deal, with all date coding between late Aug and early Oct and all VIN's matching. If it's a fake, somebody went to a huge amount of time and effort to make things match, well over the value of the car (which luckily I got for well under what the guy paid at auction).

Just my two-cent's worth...

People do that all the time and than sell them for way more than the parts are worth.
