where is the VIN plate?

Post by Alan8086 » Sat Jun 20, 2020 4:00 pm

Hello all - I'm doing some work on my 24v - flushing cooling system for one. Also want to treat and seal some rust ender the radiator while its out. I need to get a couple of cans of paint made up but I don't see a VIN plate anywhere, nothing in the engine bay or the door steps etc. You guys have described my car as a Timberline or Timberwolf in the past, by which I assumed that was the paint name.

Looking at the Paint codes section in the tech reference area, the nearest I see is Grey Green - which is about right. Am I on the money?

As you have a Timberline, colour car, it’s a late car, so the VIN plate is on the passenger side dashboard, next to the Windscreen, best view from the outside.
The very very early cars, did not have it so visible
It’s not on the Dashboard, (there’s no cut out for it).
The other place is on the fire wall, behind the IM

Hi Kit - you are not wrong! Just spotted it, low down on the dash. Never seen one there before!

Thanks for your help :-)
