Saw this on ebay: "1968 MUSTANG CALIFORNIA SPECIAL VIN TAG ENGINE TAG"

So wht do you think someone intends to do with this....why would someone sell a VIN Tag and state it is from a GT/CS. This smells of making a clone if I ever saw one.

This is the link.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1968-...15006228QQrdZ1

I think I will email the seller and ask him what happened to the rest of the car and why he is selling just the VIN tag.

What the seller is doing is illegal, and auction will probably get pulled... If the VIN is verified as a GT/CS, Paul should record this VIN 8R01C143551 in the registry and record it as destroyed.

Apparently her name is Lisa. She does`nt seem to normally deal with car parts and such. We should buy the tags or ask her to donate them to the site.

I've seen guys trying to sell tags and titles from scrap cars on eBay. I think that is pushing the illegal side. So if this guy sells those tags, and the title from a scrap heap, theroetically someone could take a nice pristine 6 cyl Mustang and make it a GT/CS car if he had all the right tags and paperwork.

Activity like this should be reported to safeharbor on eBay. They will remove anything that is not legal.

It's been reported. Let's see if they pull it. I see he stated they are for ornimental purposes only. What a bunch of "BS". I'm sure he knows exactly what someone could do with those tags. With or without a title. It's not that hard to get a salvage title.

Did you see what he wrote at the end of the listing:


"APPARENTLY THIS AUCTION HAS RUFFLED THE FEATHERS OF "CALIFORNIA SPECIAL" PURISTS AS THEY SAY SO IN THEIR BLOG. I IN NO WAY INTENDED TO OR MEANT THIS TO ANGER ANYONE OR CAST FEAR IN THEIR HEARTS THAT IN THEORY SOMEONE MIGHT MISUSE THESE ITEMS. "


Seems like we got to him but I think he should just pull the item.
