    Missing my fender tag and original engine for my 68 GTS. partial VIN 8E103XXX. If you have something please let me know. Also any history on this car would be nice. It lived it's life in the Phoenix area, and was used as a parts car in the 80s. Last registration on the plate was 84. Thanks!

    To locate a '68 back tag, the VIN is not on it so you need to post the body number.

    AKA the sales order number.

    Thanks for the information, in the stamp the 1 looks like an I. Do you have any information on the car? I've been told it was used to fix another GTS in the 80s, and it's possible the tag ended up on that car. We got it as a semi rolling shell in 99, and have since gotten it back on the road. The car has both stampings on it and they match. Thanks again for your help!

    My 68 GTS came from that area, I have a copy of the original title. I have a 68 340 in it that is not original and will check my notes and report back the VIN on it.
