Vin location 1966 Chevy pickup

Valentine's day, my boyfriend got me a 66 Chevy for my own rebuild project from an elderly gentleman that road the fields in it. Just yesterday, we got to back 'him' into the shop to begin my project. I've searched the truck over and can't find the vin plate. We have removed hood, front cap, and doors - I thought some numbers stamped on front frame could have been it, but it's only 8 digits. We are removing the bed tonight. Could the vin be stamped on the back section of frame? It's not on dash, under dash by fuse box, or inside door frame. HELP!!

been there

We've looked in all the "obvious" places - but with no luck. No plate in dash, drivers door jamb, under dash beside fuse box, etc. We are hoping that somewhere on this truck it's stamped in metal cause there is no plate...

I'm on hold with Chevrolet now. Been here over 30 minutes - since the truck is so old, they don't have info in their database any longer so they are having to call out to a different 'information station' to ask them. Surely they will come up with something!

Try Here!.......... It's for GMC trucks, but maybe you'll find something anyway.

Did you get a title?
If so, you could start backwards. See if the engine still has the partial VIN stamped into it, the last six digits should match the last six on the title if it hasn't been changed out.

Found It!!!

Thank you all for your great advice. We've found the plate on the driver's side door 'roof'. Turns out the 8 digits I found on the frame where the last 8 of the vin. From your replies, I not only found the plate, I learned where it was assembled and what number it came off production line! Very cool.
Thanks again - dee

Read post #7.


Its at the top of the door opening, right in the middle. Unusual location for it ... but that is where it is.

Where on the frame can you find the last 8 digits? I didn't know that!
I sandblasted my frame and painted it with Endura. Hopefully I'll still be able to read it.
