VIN tag has non-original rivets indicating it may or may not be original to the car.

VIN indicates a late March Van Nuys build; body tag is from an early February Norwood car.

One or both tags are not original to the car.

I actually emailed the seller and he responded that he was unaware of the issue and
that he was going to do some "research" on it.

He's a dealer. His "research" will be to ignore it.
