I wonder if he knows that police read craigslist adds too?
Maybe I should watch the sheriff's sale for a few weeks. LOL
Too Funny.rofl
So is the seller suggesting that the sportsroof was removed and the car was converted to a coupe? He is not suggesting that the VIN was changed? He does realize that this would be illegal? Then again, I could take this to the DMV and they would not know the difference. Most of the local shops doing inspections would not know the difference. I would even venture that if I was driving this and got pulled over by the police, they would not know the difference (unless they were specifically a Mustang guy). The sad thing here is that the seller obviously knows the problem with the VIN!
I Don't think it would be an issue of general public or police being aware of it. The issue would be registration. IF the VIN does not belong to the car and its stolen or has a history then i believe you could be held reponsible and get into very big trouble. I've been around the block with registration issues to know that i will never ever buy another vehicle that has a botched title or vin, even the slightest hint of an issue. It's just not worth it.

i give this guy props for admitting there's something fishy at play but then the two ads contradict themselves. Best to just sell for parts and let buyer beware of some hack job. At this point its a parts car or destined for the crusher.

EDIT: Just noticed the VIN stamp seems to be held in place with a phillips screw, weren't they riveted?
Yea it's a screw and yes it should be a special rivit.
