    Where\'s the VIN on a 74 Burb???

    I can't locate the VIN tag on a friends 74 Suburban. Anyone know where it is?

    Thanks,

    Where did you look? It should be in the drivers side dash. Viewable from the windshield.

    Later model trucks and Burbs have them on the dash, not the earlier versions. I'm not sure what year they changed, but it was before 1980 and after 1974.

    Anyone else have a 74 or there abouts with the VIN somewhere other than the dash?

    My dad's old 73 had it in one of the door jams, forget which one. I think it was either the driver's door or the driver's passenger door.

    Old Camaros and Firebirds had a cowl tag with the vin. Maybe it has one of those under the hood...

    88 K5 Jimmy,

    Was the one on your dads 73 just a sticker or was it a plate? I found the sticker, it's barely legable - there's gotta more than that!

    Thanks,

    Eric M.

    Ok, i have a 75 burb, and I have a VIN in 3 locations.

    1st is on the dash like everyone else has

    2nd is on the drivers side, back seat door frame just above the striker bolt (metal plate)

    3rd on is on the frame, pass side, top of frame rail, in front of the rear spring front hanger about 8"

    Does that help you out? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
