In addition of the VIN tag being off the car.
The seller mentions the original trim tag was damaged during restoration back in the 90's, so they replaced it with a reproduction tag using the same exact information. Unfortunately they didn't keep the original tag.
Edit: Clarification

I have never seen heavy rust in the area of the con VIN, but can easily get into the wiper arm mounts.
