    1959 Cadillac convertible with a coupe de vile vin?. Help?

    I found a great 59 convertible to buy and had already paid the owner .... However when they handed me the title it was a 59J not a 59F ... I then checked the vin plate on the door jam and it did match the title. Well I didn't buy the car since this was a coupe de vile vin number. The previous owner had the car for 15 years and claimed they didn't know there was a difference in the vin numbers. I like the car and might still possibly buy it but my concern is this a car that was converted from deville to convertible or did someone change the vin plate and title on a stolen car??? Any suggestions???? It is a number 2 car and very very nice

    It's probably a conversion, as convertibles bring way more money than coupes. If you like it, by all means, buy it (if the conversion has been done safely). Just know that it's not the real thing and enjoy it as such.
