"It is on a 1957 pan so it is titled as a 1957 based on Colorado law."






I'd say it's titled as a '57 because it is a '57... body and pan... with a bar splitting the original oval window.

Sorry, I still cringe at the term "as original" when it's not the same typeface or colour as on the original ones. Here's the original:
what the seller is pitching as the same:

and my old '50 onna' '72 pan,- titled as a 1972 - who cares - was a great deal for a running car at only $400 - zero complaints here... some of us are desperate for (unaffordable) splits - cheer us up - have pity on us, but we are all having fun - no one-way to have fun...
was advertised as a 1950 and it sorta' is a '50 > IMHO

The point here is that no part of this car is a 1953 Zwitter, and to imply otherwise, as the advertisement did, is misleading. A genuine 1950 body on a later pan is a different matter entirely.
