Missing VIN

I'm looking at a Mustang that is missing the dash vin plate. The door jam data plate is also missing. The car has just gone through a complete tear-down restoration and is in the process of being put back together. The owner says that the VIN plate got lost. I have not seen it yet but the owner also says that the VIN has been confirmed by the stamp on the unibody inside of the fender.

I wouldn't buy the car unless it was properly vetted by the DMV (not stolen) and that the DMV provides a new state VIN tag, but...

Do you all think there will be a stigma attached to the car considering the missing VIN on the dashpad? I'm worried about the marketability for when I try to sell the car...

Thanks for any input!
