71 scout 800B vin number

i've got a 71 scout and i am looking for the vin numbers on it, and i do not have any paperwork with it on it and also someone has removed the plate from the doorpost. i have found the number that indicates the factory but i can't find the other digits and i was wondering if anyone can tell me where to find it and if not can someone tell me where to find a list of the numbers that indicate the body style, top, and engine so i can piece the number together that way.

Go over and do a search for VIN location at http://www.binderplanet.com You'll find where to look on the frame for the last couple of digits. There is a FAQ concerning this as well AFAIK.

The short is if you lightly sand the frame behind the steering box, outside of frame, there are the last 5 or 6 digits stamped into the frame. They are lightly stamped, so don't sand too far.

Good luck.
