Glad to see you got some resolution.

By the way, which DMV station did that in the first place?

About a year ago I did a google search on CnV and some guy was complaining how they sold him a ZR1 (C4) with a clean AZ title but it came back salvaged from some other state. I sold those guys a car at Pomona Swap Meet and they didnt even start it up before they bought it. UNREAL!!!!!!!!

It was the station in Tempe on Broadway. In retrospect they probably did what they had to do. My vette mechanic confirmed their findings and said that he was surprised that they did not confiscate the car.

You could drive the car and enjoy it. When you want to get rid of it, the car is worth $6,500 or more in parts if you cut it up and part it out.

If you can get a full refund minus the shipping send it back, but only after he sends you the money. Have it wired to your bank so you know its there.
Ebay's insurance company cut the check. I agree the car is worth more in parts. The car runs great and is a lot of fun...

Wait a sec Lou,

Isn't the VIN in more than one place on the car?

Do they all match? You said your mech. confirmed the issues, what were they?

I'm moving to AZ in 3 months and now I'm getting nervous about my 76....

Yes it is and that was the issue- the VIN on the windshield frame did not match the major components. MVD enforcement will not give you the specifics

Most overtly the VIN was for a coupe and the car is a convertible. Best I can tell I only had to go through the more thorough inspection because it did not have a federal sticker. In AZ that is one of the criteria to move to a level II/III inspection which is performed at special MVD stations.
