I just made deposit on a convertible that is in show condition. When I evaluate this car what numbers (VIN, engine) do I need to verify. How do I decode a VIN? Are there any other authenticity checks I need to perform? Any other advice? Thanks

Hello Scott, i`m the guy who cut up the oval , you mad also ? anyways...
do you know what yr it is , also when you check the VIN on it make sure the #`s under the rear seat matches the same one up front , i dont know what yr you got but look for the I D tag under the hood , there are many websites that can find when the car was made Also make sure the panels under the running bords are not shot or rusty most verts are , If you can , what yr is it i can help you make sure you got what you paid for ..
