When I became a member years ago, there was usually an ad in Hemmings for a company which would make you a new plate like the one on my 300H door jamb. My iunerstanding was you could change the color code etc, Uncle Sam made them stop selling them I heard.
About the 300G convert: There was a man who bought a 300G convertible which had a huge amount of rust and bent panels. He wrote a series of articles about saving the car which ended up looking terrific. I think he called it something like "Raggedy Ann”.. I’m not sufre what club it was and it cojld have been Randy Hasty (???).
Bob & All,
I too have a 300G conv. that the both the trim plate and VIN number tag have rusted off or fell off.
Second point, it is not a crime to move or switch Vin tags on cars as long as there no intent to further the theft of a motor vehicle. See Office of the Law Revision Counsel, U. S. House of Representatives Title 18 Sec. 511. If you want to check it out yourself, go to http://uscode.house.gov
and do a search for title 18.

There is more than a few things of concern here. The VIN is screwed on, dead wrong, should be spot welded. The trim code plate (aka fender tag) is rotted and I suspect it and the VIN may be from a different car, Caveat Emptor. It’s a felony to mess with VIN tags by the way.
Anyone know the story on the above ? The last 6 of the vin are 139914 & the item number 163809782724. Car looks decent with a carpeted trunk and a couple of incorrect things.
