Probably a long shot, but does Marti have databases on all yellow Bosses made and how many are still around? Any chance finding that elusive number if it hasn't been ground also and doing an anonymous check for theft or if possible? Does this seem to be a Frankenstein car with all different date codes everywhere, if not you might be able to narrow down the build date to a window. I would try to inventory what is original to the car and what has been replaced I think this last owner knows more since it wasn't used on the street. Can you find out the last time the green car was registered and do a previous history search? Might be telling. Does the last owner of the yellow car have a public record you can research? I'm guessing you have a real Boss....What ever you do be careful to protect your investment
All the date codes seem to be accurate. I'd love to talk to the last registered owner in Kentucky just for more information but that was 25 years a go. I'm just going to drive it and enjoy it. The engine and dash match the title so legally I have a real nice b51 clone. What is was....... hmmmm

If it is pretty rust free, look carefully in the middle bottom of outer rockers. Back in the 80s, I redid my Dad's 73. It had partial (sequence number) vin stamped in about 10 places. I never realized the numbers were there, until I removed all paint, etc with wire brush.
Dad bought it from original owner in 78 or so, and now my son owns the car. I think with primer and paint, you can't see the numbers. They also may have done more stamping in 73.

I purchased the car in June of 1973, drove it 5 years and parked it. Came off of a 3 year restoration in May of 2021.
I have a 1971 M code I've owned since 1973. It came off a 3 year restoration in May of 2022. The original dash with the stamped vin tag was lost somewhere along the line. The fender aprons were badly rusted and discarded by the restoration shop. According to the Marti report, my car is a 1 of 1 however, without the original vin tag, I have no way of verification that my car is actually the one that goes with the factory issued vin. I have a copy of the title I was issued when I bought the car from the original owner in 1973 which states the vin of the car. Does anyone know how I can get a new tag made with the original number?
