[DML] VIN Conflict

I've been "lurking" here for some time and recently purchased my
second (restoration project) Delorean.

This car is VIN 16908 (1983 model) with an August 1982 build date. 
Written on both doors however (underneath the headliner) and on the
frame under the rear fascia is V11908.  The drivers side door also has
a handwritten date of February 11, 1982 (11/2/82 Euro style).  All of
the emissions stickers are per the 1983 standards but the one inside
the drivers door is clearly placed over another one ? (presumably 1982?).

I've seen postings before about handwritten VIN's on doors not
matching the finished car but the contradicting dates & exactly 5000
difference made me wonder if anyone had seen this before and/or might
have a plausible explanation.
