    jarrah jack,

    The title VIN should match ervery VIN on the car. If not, then watch out. At first glance, your title VIN appears to be correct for a '69 G.T.350 SportsRoof/fastback.

    The VIN on both inner fender aprons, underneath the fenders, should match the VIN on your title, door tag, and dash tag.

    It will not be found on your aprons but on your shock towers under the fenders - Full vin not a shortened one

    Have you contacted the 69 Shelby Registrar yet?

    In my last reply I said All numbers match , but , on the drivers side there has been a repair to the front apron from rust , where the apron overlaps the shock tower the 2 panels were brazed together and now the ,,9 is gone and part of the f is hard to read , ALL other numbers are there , the passenger side is complete and easy to read , is this a problem , ?? thanks

    Problem only because with it in the condition described it is a tell tale sign of the previous repair . It certainly will not be a positive . The 48 in the vin before the sequential number indicates 69 Shelby that along the sequential matching up with the windshield dash plate should put any question to rest. The door tag should match too but since it is not for registration it is not as important.The passenger side once the fender is on will disappear so take photo's for show and tell later.
