VIN Plate
#1
The NC DMV questioned the VIN Plate on my dash, because the rivets don't look original. From the limited information I could find, the "F" should've been the Ford script "F", correct? Does it look like what a 1972 should look like?

I removed the fender to show them that the numbers matched, so all is well, and I should receive the title soon.

You got lucky, I don't think that is a real tag - it doesn't look right
Those are defiantly the wrong rivets

That is not original at all. I would always crack the fenders to verify before I would ever buy one.

Yea, Though I cruise through the valley of the Shadow of Rice, I will fear no Turbo, For Thine Torque art with me. Thy forged rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

Thou preparest a strip before me in the presence of four cylinder enemies: thou anointest my heads with high octane; my quarter mile victories runneth over.

Surely Horsepower and RPM's shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will race on the streets and strips forever.
