Yes I agree, one can build a complete Austin-Healey from spare parts and use a blank serial number plate but you still need a serial number for it.

I do not see any problems with selling a blank plate and then you get your serial number punched into it, but buying a serial number from a wreck, that's another story. I think that is where it gets a little murky.

Moss sells blank V.I.N. plates and you can create your own car from parts.

I would agree with you Bob that it is borderline legal and very likely illegal in many States and most Provinces in Canada.

Wow ... Wouldn't have thought this was legal (or is it?).
