    Thanks for the encouragement Kim, I saw the fabric.. just not the right color. My car was originally Rosemist with the chestnut interior... After stripping through the three coats of paint that are on it.. have decided to put it back to Rosemist. Have run into a few challenges with the titlework. Everything is at a standstill until this is fixed.. So...keeping fingers crossed here. I went and looked at a 64 Lark today as a backup in case the title issue cant be resolved. I don't particularly like the way it felt.. I guess ol Lucy wormed her way under my skin..must be the wayward puppy/kitten/studey syndrome.

          Bob; is there any sign that the electric welds on the Serial # plate are not original? There should be at least 2 or more on the perimeter. Plate torn etc.? Not welded in the masked, bare square on the forward drivers' door post? These would be signs of funny business going on, with the body being re-serialized. There is supposed to be a duplicate serial on the lower flange of the rearmost frame crossmember that the Calif. CHP is aware of, and can be verified.

            Doesnt really fit the bill of a popular car for some underhanded VIN
            switching. We arent talking about a Ferrari here. Very odd! You
            should be able to do a paperless title change, as long as there is no
            history of the actual VIN being stolen. From your pictures, I dont
            think there will be a dispute, though I would make sure everything is
            taken care of before you sink the BIG money into it! Restoring a car
            is hard enough, restoring it for someone else, with your money - sucks!
