You need to know if it's worth investing in and if there's any chance you can increase the value of it.

KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH DAMAGE THIS CLASSIC CAR HAS ENDURED.
A DMV report may provide some information on previous accident damage, but it may not provide all the details. Reaching out to previous owners if possible can be a good way to go. When restoring a classic, those details could come in handy, and could potentially save you from buying a car that may not be worth the money.

YOUR CLASSIC CAR MAY HAVE A LOT OF RICH HISTORY.
Imagine finding out that your classic car was once been owned by an iconic Hollywood actor? The value and prestige attached to your vehicle could go way up. Locating the previous owners may help you find out more about the care and maintenance of the vehicle over the years. They may even have some pretty rich stories to share from when they owned it.

GET NEEDED INFORMATION FOR CLASSIC CAR RESTORATION BY USING THE VIN NUMBER.
VIN numbers can act as the fingerprint of your car. With a VIN number, you can tell information such as:

  • When the car was made
  • The car’s original interior and exterior colors
  • Where the car was made

...etc. This information can come in handy when you're trying to restore that classic back to its original glory. Plus, if you're in the business of buying classic cars and restoring them for resale, in most cases, collectors cannot sell classic cars without having the VIN. In many cases, with the help of the DMV, the VIN number can help you locate previous owners as well.
