It's a 69 S code Mach 1. How big of a deal is it if the vin plate on the dash is in place but not on the inner fender aprons? Has clear title, vin plate on dash and a buck tag.

yes, they have been replaced, and the originals are long gone. So, the only # is on the dash and the buck tag which is still off the car.

The legal VIN is the dash plate so as long as your car doesn't have some other VIN on it you are probably ok.

You don't report where the car was built as many were stamped on the shock towers not the fender aprons in 69

Easy to swap but you will have to check (if concerned) the rivets as the factory rivets are different from the standard pop-rivets (though you can fins the right ones)

As with any purchase it comes down to investigation
