Re: Vin and Title for sale on Craigslist

I guess it's not illegal in Canada. From the Department of Justice

Existing laws
Currently under the Criminal Code, those who tamper with vehicle identification numbers are often charged with the offence of possession of property obtained by crime or other theft related provisions. There is currently no offence in the Criminal Code directly prohibiting the alteration, obliteration or removal of a vehicle identification number.

Re: Vin and Title for sale on Craigslist

I emailed the seller and asked for the VIN, so in case it ever shows up here in the US, it's 124378N341257

You might want to ask him to clarify his ad because it looks like that is exactly what he is doing....
Yes, of course, it is illegal in Canada to tamper with a VIN.

Re: Vin and Title for sale on Craigslist

How does the guy know (or anyone for that matter) if the car really was an RS/SS 396 4spd car - especially on a 68? Does he have the car or some paperwork - was it printed on Canadian registration - or is it just a fake tag?

Re: Vin and Title for sale on Craigslist

Documentation still exists on all cars shipped to Canada, which I think was part of the import process. The docs include the options on the car, from the factory.

Re: Vin and Title for sale on Craigslist

Isn't that only on original, new units to Cananda? Not on a car that came in used?

Maybe it's cached on your computer... Now the ads gone completely when I follow the link.

Re: Vin and Title for sale on Craigslist

The ad comes up for me....

Man, that's the closest VIN to mine I've ever seen, less than 50 cars away.

  • '68 RS, AA, 749, L30, M(uncie)20 (originally a 3spd), 15yr backburner resto........
