ZF ID# Matches VIN?

Are the Pantera transaxles supposed to have a matching number plate to the vehicle's VIN if they are original to the car?

My Pantera has a salvage title from a theft two owners back, in the 80's. In NY, to register a vehicle with a salvage title, you must go through a "stolen parts" investigation to prove that the parts on your car are yours. I can provide receipts for the car itself and the motor, but have no idea where the ZF came from, or if it's even the original trans. The number plate on the trans does not contain any matching numbers to the VIN, but I don't know if they ever did. Can anyone confirm?
