I used to be a Mustang freak and just came across the title and VIN plate from a 65 coupe I owned that was a total wreck. The remains were parted out and all that exists of the car now is the plate and title from 1981, with just 6,000 miles on it.

Is it legal in NJ to sell a title and VIN plate?

Anything else I should know?

Thanks guys.

    It's a state by state thing, and it seems somewhat murky. I know eBay won't let you sell it and no professional body shop is allowed to remove or possess a VIN plate except during repairs to that same vehicle.And "tampering" with a VIN plate is a Federal offense. But selling it as a souvenir, seems like to would be hard to prosecute....but don't write me from jail to complain about my bad advice--LOL!

    The fact that the title went with the VIN plate is definitely not cool.
