Best bet is to switch VIN# to other car but none of the date codes in the sheet metal will match to 71. I think more of a parts car than anything. Another one of those that rare does not make it valuable.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Pretty typical of what a Northeast car looks like after 50 years. Hate to say it, but I've junked better condition vehicles, but that was before the prices went through the roof.

Someone will buy the lot and do exactly what David noted, even though it's illegal as all heck.

Switching vins is a FELONY!!  Guaranteed prison time!! Even David should know this. everthing on this 71 is repairable, just takes time and money! How much do you have?

movie stars with addictions go to the Betty Ford clinic,
I take my addiction to the Henry Ford clinic.Haha

Felony only if you get caught. It happens all the time for sure. They sell titles at the swap meets here and the DOT guys are present and never seen anyone get in trouble. It is just replacing lots of sheet metal the opposite way. Move the number not the metal, lol.

So another two cars saved from the crusher and added to my long list of projects. They came in this week. The M code, Ram Air, 4 speed, power window car is restorable. All numbers matching drivetrain. I'll get to it one day (maybe when I retire, lol)!

I have always wondered about this.

If I find a burned out Boss 351 that has the whole rear and roof melted from the fire, rusted out floor pans and fender aprons but all original parts there  I have 2 options.

1) Buy a Dynacorn body, switch all the Boss parts to the new metal, along with the VIN, and title the car. --Per the comment above, that is a felony.

2) I buy that same Dynacorn body, or other donor sheet metal and drill out every spot weld on the damaged/burned out boss and meticulously replace all metal on the body around the VIN that is still on the burned/ rusted frame.  -That is perfectly legal because I restored the car?

My point is one is simply welding the VIN into the new sheet metal, the other is welding new sheet metal around the VIN.  How come one is a Felony and the other is a success story?
