So we got my car home and was trying to get the title switched over. Well it is not running so we had to have someone come out and verify the VIN number and sign off on it. They came out today and reviewed the VIN and stated they do not match. I have looked it over and to me it looks pretty laid out. They stated the tag on the door has more numbers in it than the title does.
Title shows
M431108852

tag on door shows
0413 433 M431 108852 35A

Anyone have some idea of what is going on and what I should do?

Ok so better searching found the answer for the tag numbers. Now have to figure out how to get the DMV to agree to those being correct.

The title shows the correct VIN

M431 108852 translates as 1959 (M) Desoto (4) Firedome (3) made in Detroit-Jefferson Ave (1) 108852 the 8852th Firedome made during the 1959 model year


The data plate provides additional information and translates as

0413 car made on April 13

433 Desoto (4) Firedome (3) 4 door sedan (3)

354 gray cloth and vinyl interior
