It's not the worst thing in the world. I found out mine was swapped by the "restoration shop" that sold it to me. I've never had an issue but I wish I had known up front.

- it's just a conversion project - so why the hell does anyone care about the year of the shell?

what you're buying is what you see

- with the benefit of a TITLE & appropriate VIN tags - - consider yourself lucky if it gets you to owning a streetable exempt 3.2 sixer free of legal hassles with DMV et al

i knew the P.O. and this car 'way back, i actually drove it when it was a 4-cyl when he was preparing to take it apart & i b'ot the very good driving sideshifter out of it back then
(still have that on the shelf - we can never have enuf good spares. eh?)

(i agree that the alu trunk tag is misplaced - that's kinda goofy)
see this www.914world.com/bbs2/sources/action_public/pop_helpvin.html

y'd have to pull the windshield to discover if that tag was moved - - i do not believe the P.O. ever replaced the windshield, so i'll guess he b'ot the car the way you see -

P.O. went thru a bunch of 914's back in the day (when we were all still buying 'em for $500 running) -

as a '70, it's exempt from SMOG in CA, which it would NOT not have been as a '75, and still not as a '76 titled conversion,

- surprised it has been in kept hiding & unfinished for so long

It's not the end of the world, but swapping vin tags is illegal and here in Indiana If (and I say IF) you are caught with this you will lose the car and maybe some $$ in fines or more.

Now who is really going to check, probably no one. This is still a good deal for the car & parts.

I don’t have any issues with my car (I didn’t know about the swap until 30 years after I purchased the car) but it’s always better to know those things up front, before you purchase.
