    Here s the original tag from my old 68 383 GTS,no inspection mark and the font is identical to the tag in question,I would lean more to the miss stamp than fake tag.[​IMG]

      again......what one plant did or didn’t do doesn’t translate to another. Hamtramck is different that St. Louis.

      what was coded, when it was coded and even where is was coded on the tag varies by year, plant and even time of year.

        theoretically speaking, and not saying this is the case with your car......

        it is possible that a rusty or totaled, numbers matching GTX, was re-bodied with a satellite; using all of the matching GTX stuff..... Only problem would be the order number on the original GTX tag wouldn't match the body stampings on the replacement body; so someone had to make a duplicate GTX tag with the new order number. (and they messed it up with the 26" code)

        the only way to prove the body, tag, and VIN all match is with a build sheet.........and I'm sure they can fake those too

        Yes it’s possible but not in this case.....

        are you not curious as to how I knew the VIN? Post 16.

          So if you are going to convert from a 22” to a 26” where can you find the passenger side radiator support panel??

          AMD sells a 26" core support......... or you get one from any A/C car, even a 318 car

          My mistake and appologies. Sorry. Whoever posted the tag in 2012 must have intentionally posted the wrong VIN.

            Ohh I thought you were talking about tags....I didn't see the previous post.......

            The core supports are the same in 22 or 26 for all B's 68-70....Which I think you will agree and the previous post about AC is incorrect

            there may be minor differences, but all 68-70 B body core supports are interchangeable

            it’s the same car.

            I visit numerous boards, eBay, Facebook and wherever for tags. I don’t know where that specific image came from but I’ve had it for “a while”.
