I used a company called A. G. Backeast out of Grand Junction, CO. I sent them copies of a Galen Glovier report and they sent be back exact duplicates of the vin and fender tag. This was for a 67 Dodge. The original body shop I took it too in 2004 removed them for some reason and then proceeded to lose them. Didn't change anything, just got very good reproductions of the originals. Still matches the title.

However, I think I read in another post that A. G Backeast has gone out of business. But I have not verified that.

I think that vin tag they offer may be a sticker? Will have to give them a buzz and see what is the dillio on that.

To be honest, I want both on the car. I want a blue tag is the a-pillar drip raid and the correct looking tag on the dash.

Yeah, like yourself I only found labels and couldn't find VIN tags on their website either, maybe it's too new.
That screenshot is from the email ECS sent to me on Nov. 01, 2022, I just edited out some personal information.
If you're interested call them. I've phoned them in the past and they were more than helpful and pleasant

Dave has told me that the two companies that used to do it are no longer doing so because too man people did illegal stuff with the vins they provided and have shut down to limit their legal liabilities.

I am considering approaching state and federal offices about reproducing them legally with a proper documentation trail.

UPDATE. Apparently, I just realized that the vin tags from 1968-1977 could be three different version, depending on possibly where they were made/year(s). Some tags have Astik marks, some don't. Will have to investigate this further.

There is a company out there that remakes Vin tags. I used to have all the information stored in my hard drive that i cannot get it working. Barry Washington As much I love his hard work on keeping everything legit but on this there is alternatives to get one made. The company is licensed through federal law. I remember talking to them and I believe there is another one other place out there. If I come across it I will reach out. There is a process that you have to go through to get it done.

they used to sell cheap rosette rivets from Russia on Ebay for something like $25a PAIR shipped. these rivets are bare non plated. a LOT of sellers bought them, paint them black and sold for profit.
the correct river is dark brown almost black. these rivets are anodized.
look closely at original and top of line resto cars vin tags. the rivets are a slightly different color than the black tag.
the rivets pictured came from the AMC / Chrysler assembly plant in Kenosha before the closed it down. i think i have had these rivets for over 30 years. got them from a friend whos dad worked at the plant.

Might have found the tooling to make the vin stamping. Placing order for dash tag hopefully this week. Also contacting other people to take on reproducing the tags. Won’t do fender tags though. Hope to display soon.
