No dash mounted VIN !!!!!

Am I the only 86 out there with no VIN on my dash ?

I have one on the door pillar, but I'd never looked at my dash til I was in at the emission tester's the other day(last test ever, I'm exempt now!) and ....NOTHING there !

I have the cut out in the black window surround for it, but no tag, no holes, no nuthin" !

Re: No dash mounted VIN !!!!!

If you bought it used it's possible that it's been totalled in the past and then brought back to life by a salvage yard. I guess sometimes when there is no one to claim the vehicle the salvagers can get a new vin issued and that new vin is attatched to the door. I just heard about this this last weekend. How wierd is that?

Re: No dash mounted VIN !!!!!

I asked the Ford chick at service yesterday

and she said that when I have my dash out this Summer to lead in all round the pillars and window, to check down in the dash.

She did say that pretty much anything before the 17 digit VINs doesn't surprise her.

Tell you ! I'll be preserving the sticker on my door post with care as the body work continues !

So what you are telling me is for the cost of a junkyard title and a winsheild your truck can be mine and there would be nothing you could do to disprove it? [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Hahahah

Ownership is 9/10ths of the law. I still have my door post VIN sticker so I should be good, unless you sneak by with a scraper !
