Hmm...there are several issues here. First of all, aside from the vin not having the correct rivets, it's also from a 66 Impala coupe built at the St Louis plant. The cowl tag is from a 65 SS coupe built at the Southgate, CA plant. My guess is that the vin has been changed since you said it was a 65.

So mismatched years, plants and body styles. I think the next thing to do would be to find the partial vin# stamped on top of the frame of the car (rear drivers side behind wheel well). That should have the original letter and last 6 digits of the 65 vin. If found, I would have them run that too. Sometimes a car is stolen then the vin tag is removed and one from a legit car is put on.

Warren

Just don't spend any money updating the car until you get everything ironed out.

If the cowl tag is original to the car, then it's an SS and most likely starts 166375C (I doubt the car was a 6cyl originally). You would just add the last six of the vin (from the frame) to that to get the full vin.

Here is the vin off the 65 Caprice that I mailed you the cowl tag. This also shows the infamous DD on the VIN.

Warren, Are you documenting Canadian cars as well? My Biscayne is one of only 1,482 Produced for sale in Canada (Same model# only), sold out of Calgary Alberta.

Thanks.
