VIN number on dashboard

Just bought a used prelude, clean title, ran carfax and notice that the VIN on the dashboard is missing. But it does have a replacement VIN number CHP tagged "blue tagged" on the door. Is this going to be a problem in the future?

Re: VIN number on dashboard

that's strange for that to have the VIN in the door jam, but it shouldn't cause a problem if you get pulled over. The VIN does match everything else on the car correct such as the motor, tranny, firewall, ect. ect.

Re: VIN number on dashboard

Yes, everything matches. The previous owner bought it at a car auction and said it was like that. I searched the net and kept reading that a meter maid might tow it, so I had a valet ticket covering that part up.

Re: VIN number on dashboard

the car was a theft recovery most likely . ive seen this before if it has a state issued vin tag usually a theft recovery car . dont mean it was totaled a dick thief popped it off the dash after a joy ride . state issued vins go in the drivers door jam .
