        You need a VIN to start. That car looks great, but it could be anything.

              Okay let me start over.............I'm looking for prior owner information. I put a deposit on it last week, just trying to talk to a previous owner. Provenance is what I need. I know it's the wrong radiator and hose, looks to be pre 66. I'll be changing out the upper hose. I do know it was not a original Hemi car.

              It’s a nice looking car. And it would be hard to build it for less than they are asking. The Belvedere is just the lowest trim level for all the B body Plymouth’s in ‘69. Obviously if it was trimmed a Road Runner or GTX, it would be higher priced.

                      The sleeper flat hood is cool.

                        Naa didnt see the actual vin. Posted what I thought the fender tag says. Its what I made out of the blurred image. In the end that portion of the tag is just the sequence number. This is what I thought it said. 276926 But it could be 274026 or it could be 274926 I do believe you are correct on the 4 being there now that I look at it again.

                        Going to convert it to a negative image to see if I can tell better. Ok checking out the negative version. 274026..

                        With numbers corrected I also think the code is B95 now here is the result.
                        Code Description
                        RL21
                        R = Plymouth Belvedere/Satellite
                        L = Low
                        21 = 2 Door Coupe
                        B95
                        B = 225 145HP 1-1BBL 6 CYL
                        9 = 1969
                        5 = Los Angeles, CA, USA
                        274026 Sequence Number '274026'

                            Link to a prior sale- about 1000 miles ago. There is a phone number for a seller that you can maybe call?
                            https://topclassiccarsforsale.com/p...ere-426-hemi-original-paint-and-interior.html

                            Better Tag pic from the other listing. '69 Plant Code is a Letter - in this case "G" for St. Louis. VIN is more clear in this one - 274026. Fairly late '69 build, so headrests would likely be correct. K-frame has '70 sway bar holes in, at least,the bottom plate - can't tell if they go through the top - skid plate is cobbled on. (EDIT: I shouldn't say "cobbled" - it is just a custom add-on for that deep pan...)

                                this is from one of the listings

                                There is also a drive shaft loop and bolt on frame connectors making this car at home on the street or track.

                                I wonder if they blew up the 8 3/4 at some time and replaced it with the Dana?
