If you ever went to sale this car it could become an issue. I'd call local authorities and ask. I was sold a truck, told it was one year newer, paid that price, nada, then my Insurance man, who also had it previously insured with the old owner who sold it to me told me nope, he told you wrong. He pulled the vin and showed me, sure nuff, one year older. The tag office didn't even pick it up, issued my tag as the year the neighbor told them. My neighbor actually drove me to the tag office, it wasn't shady but ppl make mistakes/typos. So I didn't press the issue, no need to but Poop happens. cyb
Right that is what I’m afraid of is when I sell the car later down the road, there will be an issue with value and all of that because of this. I don’t think it’s a mis tag the VIN in the trunk is from an accident from Ohio and the outside of the trunk has a decal from a place in Ohio. But I know mis tags happen my brother says it does happen but I’m afraid this is not the case
We bought a boat from out of state. Dh couldn't get a tag until we provided the "correct" vin number. The one on the bill of sale was wrong. So the tag office told him to call the county police; they'd come out and inspect, fill out a form for which dh would be able to present in order to have a tag issued.
So the cop came out, we're all under the boat and trailer looking for a metal vin, finally found a sticker, old and faded. The young fella, cop, ran the numbers, came back nada, so I took pics, enlarged and we guessed...it's either a B, 8, or 6. He ran all the numbers that way til he found it. After the cop left, dh found the vin, a small metal plate the old tag was covering, hahahaha. But the cop did good, he got it straightened out. So call your tag office, get the name of the form, have a county cop bring the form and inspect your car. Or call the authorities and ask how to do a find out. There are laws to protect you if it's what you think it may be.
Well it sounds like you bought a half of two vehicles.....that's gotta have footing somewhere. Call Carfax and ask them for the title to the ass-end, jk. But it sounds like you'd have something to go on being you have both vin's.
Yeah, kinda sux. Good luck, I'd just press it in all different directions. You bought one car; not two halves.
