Re: Finding the VIN on a 77 CJ7
My '79 frame was rusted so bad the number just wasen't there. I had nothing on the firewall but there is a plate riveted on top of the radiator support near the horn. If that was the case with your's and the front end was damaged maybe the plate was never transferred over to the new grill shell? Also I have a decal on the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel where the left speaker grill should be. On the '85 it had a couple plates on the firewall by the brake mc, nothing on the grill shell, but it had a plate riveted to a bracket that was sandwiched between the wiper motor and the windshield frame. I've registered cars in a couple different states. Usually if you hand them a title, all the information being on there, they just set you up with a new title. Why would they question it if it was previously registered in another state? Well good luck.
