Re: [Chrysler300] Vin stamp location, 59 300E





Mike

Even my 300K has the spot welded VIN with the holes that would indicate the intent was to rivet/screw them on. I have a '56 Golden Hawk and also parted a '64 Super Hawk and Studebaker did the same thing - notches for screws but VIN tags that were spot welded. My assumption is that if Chrysler and Studebaker did it for many years other manufacturers probably did as well, so a little crazy that the California DMV (probably the most car conscious state) has a DMV that's clueless in this regard. 

I tried looking your location up on the 2016 roster but only see your Dad's NC address. ‎If you are anywhere near LA, maybe you could reach out to the chief "guy" at Leno's Garage and find out if they have a contact at the DMV. My guess is that Leno (or "his guy") deals with this stuff all the time. I don't mean to sound cavalier, but he did do a recent segment on our cars, so you may have a "friend in court" that you don't even realize.

Just a thought.

Those are all factory installed vin tags. They were never screwed on, always spot welded. The only other numbers that may match on the cars are the data tag, which is screwed on in different places depending on year. Some have them behind the heater core and below the trunk on the cross member behind the bumper. These are 60 and up uni-body cars. Cars with frames may have them somewhere too, but they would match the data tag, or engine number. Your DMV is wrong.

Do these look factory installed?  The DMV is saying these should have been riveted

On my F, the VIN is stamped behind the heater box on the firewall and on the flashing beneath and in front of the rear bumper, in an area below the license plate.  The latter one may be difficult to see as on my car, the imprints were barely visible but nevertheless there.  This location will not require you to remove anything but the one behind the heater box would require removing the heater box, not an easy job.
 
Good luck.

Dealing with local DMV inspector issues.  I need to find the VIN stamped somewhere else on the car besides the door.  Any idea where that might be on a 59E?  Having to do the same thing on a 59 dodge as well.  My local DMV drives me nuts.
