Call your local PD, tell them you're looking into used cars and want to be 100% sure that the VINs are clean. They should be able to run them and let you know.

What probably happened was this:

Someone got a car with no title, and had another junker with a title. They probably swapped the VIN plates instead of swapping the engine/interior, etc. Doesn't sound super legal, but due to the age it might fly as a custom? I have no idea. Maybe the rebuilt title has something to do with it?

Vinaudit.com is cheap and can give you the histories (maybe)
