In a reasonable (if not perfect) world, only one car can have the legal
right to any given vehicle identification number (VIN). Forget about the
license plate number. I would think that the VIN would stay with a P6
base unit unless someone does something dodgey. A P6 base unit IS the
car. Now, in a body-on-frame situation like a P4 or it's close relative
the Lotus Elan, the body may be the car and the frame is just a major
component. But if you took all of the seats, instrument panel,
suspension bits and engine off of a P6, threw them in a pile without a
base unit and tried to make the case that you had an automobile there,
it might be a difficult argument to make.
