is the current owner the original owner? if not, he was probably sold a fake too when he bought it
bill, what are the body parts on a 64 that distinguish a BelAir/Biscayne from an Impala? on a '65 it's the trunk lid but that can be swapped out easily enoughCould be a case of no title. Through the years, especially years ago, it was too easy just to take a VIN tag from a junk car with a title than to try to somehow get the original title to the car.
I can't see the Rivets on the Cowl Tag, but sure enough, the Rivets on the VIN tag do not look original to me. Actually in '64, it may be that all of them were tack welded on.
Beautiful SS by the way.
The big difference is the body style. All Bel-Air and Biscayne cars in '64 were Sedans. Not only a post car but a whole different style roof as well.bill, what are the body parts on a 64 that distinguish a BelAir/Biscayne from an Impala? on a '65 it's the trunk lid but that can be swapped out easily enough
Which adds to the same thing. Evidently someone took a Tag and Title from another car.I forgot to mention, the car does come with clean title. And the title has the same VIN number as the plate. It’s just super odd to me
VermontThis also reminds me of some guys out there that will get an old car and totally restore it dumping $1000's into it and not worrying about the title till it's done. Anytime I get a car, I always title it right away. You don't have to register it, not here in Virginia anyway, but I always make it a point to title it.
I like states that don't require a title. But we aren't one of them.
I like states that DO require a title. I like to have an official document that says I own the car. No question as to who owns the car......I like states that don't require a title. But we aren't one of them.
Hey everyone, I’m in the middle of purchasing on what it appears to me a 1964 SS impala. I’m not so new to these cars so I am able to distinguish lots of different details on these impalas but after checking out the vin tag & cowl tag. Something is not matching up.
The car is clearly an impala, but the vin tag shows it as a Biscayne. Owner seems clueless as to why this is but I want to see if by any chance I can get some help/opinions on this one. Please reference to attached photos.
VIN TAG = 41111 L 150511
COWL TAG = 64-1447 AT 011372
Are you selling it?The last post is correct. Looking in my 1964 Shop Manual the 1447 is a V8 Impala Supersport. The 1347 is a 6 cyl. Impala Supersport. The 1847 is a V8 Impala. The 1747 is a 6 cyl. Impala. If the car you are looking at is the light blue, I own a 64 Supersport hardtop in light blue. Totally restored and original. 327, 4 speed.
