I have a vin question. Should the vin tag in the windshield be black or metal color. I'm looking at a car to identify the tags, but the windshield is on and can't pull it to verify it and the rivets.

If the cowl and firewall were replaced due to rust how would the car be identified other than the vin tag on the windshield?

Are there any frame stampings to look for?

Thanx for the help....

Hi...I assume you are talking about a 68 or 69 Camaro? If so the vin tag was painted with the top of the dash so it should be black...after so many years though and sun exposure...who knows what would like today...depends on where the car has been. The hidden numbers are only stamped on the top of the cowl and by the heater blower motor to my knowledge. If the cowl and firewall have been replaced with original parts from another car due to rust...then the hidden numbers wont match the vin. Just my two cents but I wouldnt go anywhere near that car! Why start pouring money into a car when the hidden vin numbers dont match the vin? I think this is a growing problem with these cars though with so many repro panels available....

That's incorrect. The dash was already painted by Fisher (same color as interior). The VIN was painted off-line and installed by Chevrolet. It does not alway match the color of the dash (though it may).

I do agree, if #'s don't match, run....
