Is'nt it against the law to not have the vin match the title? Or is because it is the cowl tag and that does'nt matter as long as the the window vin matches the title? I'm confused I guess my question is does the VIN numbers appear on the cowl ?
The cowl tag has no legal standing for identifying the car - it's just a convenience so the dealer could identify the correct codes for the paint and trim combinations and the body build date, and the VIN does NOT appear on the cowl tag - only the body style and body number.
The numbers on the VIN plate (on the hinge pillar on a '67, and on top of the instrument panel behind the windshield on '68-'69) must match the VIN on the title, and a derivative of the VIN is stamped on the passenger side of the cowl below the vent grille and adjacent to the heater blower motor hole in the firewall underneath the blower housing.
