Vehicle Data Plate
The Vehicle Data plate can usually be found on the rear edge of one of the doors, but can also be found on one of the front suspension towers. This is where you will find the Commission Number (later called the Vehicle Identification Number or V.I.N.), the Build Year, Build Month, Paint Code and Trim Code. There were several different ID plates used throughout production.
In addition to the Commission Number/VIN, most cars were labeled with a body number. This is usually found on a small tag riveted beside one of the bonnet (hood) hinges. On some cars this tag can be found on one of the front suspension strut towers.
Located to the side of the hinge bolts on the front.
