Those are definitely factory. The cowl tags are screwed on and the VIN tags are spot welded—at least originally. If knocked off in restoration (or on purpose, they may be pop-riveted or screwed to the door jamb. I have seen the CA DMV checklist for identifying a car being registered and it includes the question something like this:” Is the VIN tag affixed to the dashboard with special six-sided rivets? Yes or No. The inspector checked No and just went on—seemingly aware that older cars did not have this feature. I’d suggest asking for a supervisor as the lower-level inspectors may not be allowed to make decisions like that.
Do these look factory installed? The DMV is saying these should have been riveted
