Find location for VIN, Vehicle Identification Number (Primary one)

Asked by Jahe Jun 18, 2016 at 04:00 PM about the 1984 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe RWD

Question type: General

Hi,
I bought a Chevrolet Corvette C4, 1984 in April 2015. When i now in May
drove for the car inspection (in Sweden for this 32 year old Corvette the car
inspection are every two year). Everything was ok from a functional aspect.
BUT they adjusted the rules regarding primary and secondary VIN (Vehicle
Identification Number) and then the problem started. I have the secondary
one below/behind the windshiled + i have the original label om the driver
door. But we could not find the one on the chassis or beam around the
engine and the whole way back on the underside i also used small mirrors
as some had ideas to look on top of beams... I tried to search for this via
different ways - communities in US and Sweden, asked people etc. but no
specified answer. No one asked/looked for this earlier when the inspection
was done. On Mnday June 20 my car get driving ban. This is not fun at all -
i mean the car been on our roads in 28 years (was imported 1988). This is
to avoid that people mix cars and build from different parts. But this one
never been stolen, crasched or rebuilt and the identiy never change during
these years.
Does some have any ideas where to find the primary one?
Regards Jan

I found this about an 86 Vette. May be the same location. There should be a partial VIN stamped on the front of the frame just below the battery. Remove the rear wheel well liner on the driver's side. The number should be stamped about 3cm below the top of the frame rail facing the front wheel. These numbers are not stamped too deep so you may have to remove some of the black paint from the frame to see the numbers. Once the numbers have been verified, simply repaint the area with some black paint to keep rust from forming. These numbers should be the same as the last 8 or 9 digits of the VIN.
