Wish I knew (someone will here) when they standardized putting them all visible thru the windshield. I recall some were on an aluminum plate riveted to driver's door jam, some on firewall, perhaps even on radiator supports - either painted over or not. If car was fixed along all these years normally one would remove it and re-install it as needed for body work. Again not certain what years but some cars stitched them under seats on basically paper also, inside door jams etc. If you go back far enough they didn't freak about putting that everywhere like later vehicles,

I'm glad in more recent times they've all put it in one spot. Thanks for posting back with that info.

im glad they did that too. it seems like from what ive seen back then they put em several diffrnt places depending on how the guy with the stamp and hammer felt that day. it wasn't until like 1980 they standardized the 17 digit and location
