Sometimes eBay just cracks me up - '67 'S' code coupe

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ford-...fCarsQ5fTrucks

You find the funniest things on eBay sometimes. Like this '67 coupe with an S code 390. A serious project for sure, but looks kind of interesting; a bare bones coupe ordered to race with basically no options and a 4 speed.

But then you get to the photo below. The seller explains, "The vin tag was cut off so the identity could not be stolen."

Ummmm, yeah right. That's what I do to deter thieves when I put a car in storage; pull off the rotor, disconnect the battery... and cut the VIN off for safe keeping.

Doesn't do much good if you cut off the last number in the vin. Trust me, it's there, look real close!!!! Yeah, mine was an "R" code that wasn't stamped very well at the factory, just looks like a "T". LOL

Not too smart, the law dogs will be with him shortly. LOL

"Honest your honor, I had to remove the VIN stampings for safe keeping. I was afraid that they would rust off and then I could not do a VIN check when I restored her." "I am planning ahead, so to save trouble in the future."
"I heard that those dinercorn mustangs that you can buy in a crate are fastbacks, I'm gonna restore this car as a fastback, but those don't come with no numbers like mine." "I heard that those dinercorn's come in a crate already welded together."

Mine looks like a "S" but it's really an "R" -- just like yours.

Maybe the same guys worked on all these cars?

Might have to check the sellers 100% positive feedback.
