There are two hidden vins which require the fenders to be removed or loosened and pulled back, one hidden on the passenger side and one hidden on the drivers side. Watch this video: YouTube - "How To" V.I.N. identification

driverside inner well has been replaces and so has the door, only thing i got doin is the pass fender's hidden VIN, what i dont understand is if someone put a new front nose on a car that means every VIN would be changed, there is no places on the rear of the cars that had somethin stamped?

If the passenger side vin is also missing you are out of luck, no other vins will be on the car. You can compare the date codes found on the body to the vin that you find to somewhat tell if the vin matches the rest of the dates of the car. Many parts like the floor (under rear seat) and inner fender aprons have dates stamped on them when they were made. Like 7 25 3D decodes to July 25, 3rd shift at Dearborn plant. If you post the vin someone here can tell you the production date of the whole car and compare that date to the rest of the car dates. All the dates should be in the same month as the production date of the vin, probably all within two weeks of each other. That will give you an idea if the front clip and vin are original to the car. And actually if it is a 1967 you are in luck because they still have all the records for your car. http://www.martiauto.com/itemselecti...lecteditem=yes. Marti auto works will be able to tell you everything about your car with just the vin number, they can tell you all the options it had, the original color, interior color, transmission it had, axle it had, and even where it was sold.

The only other possibility is if your car was built at Metuchen it would have a buck tag near the passenger hood hinge and the VIN would be on that.

1968 Mustang coupe, Acapulco Blue, 289 2v, C-4, Power Steering.
Hopefully a 1969 convertible or Sportsroof (non Mach or Boss) for next Mustang project

Trying to find my father's 1973 Mustang Grande he bought brand new. 3F04F126773 last known registration and title was in New Jersey, 1982.

It is possible his car has leather seats. Most of us classic guys and gals know that originally these cars had vinyl seat upholstery.

I've seen leather seat kits for sale in a Mustang Monthly ad years ago. It also could have a custom leather interior.

I think if it had a buck tag, he'd have found it already.

Buell22, What paperwork do you have for the car? Did you just get the car? Do you have a title or an old registration from the previous owner?

This is my 500th post!
