I purchased a gto and need some expert help rebuilding it, and locating a vin as it appears that there was not a plate mounted on the dash. TIA

What year? How did you buy it without a VIN; I hope you didn't pay too much. Heck, it could be a stolen Oldsmobile (fellow discontinued car co)

Lots of red flags on this one. I would assume that the plate on the firewall is gone as well? With the tags removed you can't even verify that your car is in fact a GTO. Based on your vague description you may have problems when it comes time to register and/or inspect this car. I would look into this before I bothered rebuilding anything. If you can't register it your only legal options would be to find out if it was stolen at some point and return it to the owner or to turn it into a race car.

Also, double check that it's not there. There should be an obvious space where it goes on the bottom of the drivers side dash seen through the windshield.

Good luck!
