OK, for some of you guys who know about VIN tag info: I need to know how to tell (or if you can tell) by the VIN tag or the firewall tag, for a '74 Ventura, if the car was a GTO, a regular 2-door Vent, a 4-door Vent. And, does any of the info on the tags tell if the car was a hatchback or not.
I need the tags for a '74 2-door hatchback Custom Ventura--not a GTO or a 4-door, or a notchback. A friend is wanting to put a '74 Vent race car back on the street. The guy who built it removed the dash, with the VIN tag on it, and replaced it with sheet metal. So, my friend needs a dash, with a VIN that will match the car, so that he can get a title for it, and pass inspection.
The reason I'm asking these questions is so that he won't get the wrong ID tags which will show up as a different model car, if they run a check on the numbers. It's not for resale, or to try and make someone think it's a rare, high dollar car, but just simply to make it pass inspection, should the numbers be checked.
Do any of you guys have, or know of a '74 Vent hatchback parts car, that might provide the correct tags ?
