It appears that you are the proud owner of a "Frankenstein" car
The body, the frame and the engine all appear to have come from different cars.
The GHNL 74440 title appears to be from another car altogether.

Hi Harald,

your body# doesn't match with the number you found on the frame.

It could be that your documents (VIN 46337 and Body#56071) are correct and another frame was used.

In this case I would "going to let sleeping dogs lie" confused smiley

I assume it's HDR43/37632.
If yes, then all Numbers are correct.

Could you please post a pic of the car ?

Thanks
