Bull.... if that was a hint to change the vin tag from one car to another, not a good idea. It is against federal law to do it.

The car is/ was an original SS, all original body panels, the motor wasn't numbers matching, but it was a real SS. The hood is steel. I've already found another body for it, and I've decided just to swap bodies, and build the car the way I want it. If anybody is interested in any parts, let me know.

well .... when you doo the swap, id suggest keeping as many of the SS cars parts ON THE SS ... i personaly would rather use (for example) a decent set of donor fenders and repair them for the second car, then dont take the good set off the SS and loose the resale on the ss remains...

that way you can sell the remains of the SS for as much as possible - still mostly intact w/ whatever parts you dont need, and someone who works at a shop that can personalt fix a rolled car

even though (i dont think) ss fenders (for example again) are any different then like 6 cylinder fenders ... as a buyer, its nice to be able to be able to say to ones self "it still has the factory fenders, dash, window trim, light switches, dome light blah blah blah ... if that makes any sense

ss, gto, super duty, corba, and grand sport type vin tags alone go for plenty on ebay, let alone the entire body shell, wrecked or not ... GTO's that have been in the mud for 30 years are still worth thousands, so you can get a good couple bones for your rolled SS

i digress,

Rust.....most vinyl roof cars tended to rust bad under the vinyl.
