where\'s the VIN on an M38A1?

Just bought another project (#6 now,) a very built M38A1.
Where's the serial / VIN number stamped on it? Or supposed to be.
Since it's military, will it have a similar number to a
CJ-5?
No plate that I can find, no stamps either.
Thanks.

Mine is on the data plaque on the dash. If there is another place for it, I don't know of it yet. I'm interested for myself what the answer is too.

Re: where\'s the VIN on an M38A1?

I'm in the same boat. There are two plates on mine. One on the dash which shows the last service date and location. This was was a marine corp one, which appears to have been based in Albany, GA. The other plate is right above the riser behind where the passenger seat should be. The M38a-1 is a future project stored in the chickenhouse right now and everytime I'm down there I forget to write down any numbers I find. I'm not even sure what year mine is.
