Caveat Emptor...tag swap?

124379N692553

N692553 was final assembled on or about September 30, 1969. Body tag has an 01C date, 3rd week January 1969. One or both tags are not original to the car.
Learning more and more about less and less...

At least the car is listed as a tribute. VIN tag and dash look ok, the body tag is an X11, hopefully the seller was not stupid enough to mess with the VIN tag. My X77 is an 01C, VIN sequence is in the 585xxx range -

Amazing how the wheels on this car detract from the overall appearance - really cheapen it IMO.

I agree with the wheels comment above. Lots of questions arise from that cowl tag/VIN situation.

Agree on the wheels as well; restomod vibe.

I'm hoping that's a direct result of them being called out on all the other ones they try to pass off as authentic.
