Missing VIN number and data plate on 1968 Mustang
Okay, here's the story.
I'm a big fan of classic 'Stangs. My uncle is friends with a man and his son who own a car/truck/boat/RV storage and someone had abandoned a 1968 Mustang there. It was abandoned a few years ago and they have tried endlessly to contact the owner and never could. They were selling it for $600 and I thought that was a great buy considering just the shell alone would be expensive. I got excited and bought it. Come to find out, even though it's ALL original and in REALLY good condition for being so, there are no VIN numbers to be found and the data plate is missing. I know it's not impossible to get a new VIN number and data plate. Just can't find out how. Can anyone PLEASE help me? We can't contact the previous owner because whoever he was fell of the face of the earth. It does have inspection stickers and license plates[Outdated], not sure if that helps. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person who's ever been through this. I'm willing to go through whatever it takes for this car.
