S2 chassis number

Recommended Posts


I'm not still an owner esprit but I find a 1979 S2. I inspect the car, but I ask you where is the vin number ? In fact I believe it duplicated in the rear compartment, through a rectangle hole in the plastic, but on this one nothing. I don't think it was only int the identification plate in the front compartment.

Here's a picture:

the VIN numbers are in 3 places:

one plate on the top of the right/left wheelarcher in the front boot

one plate riveted on the right, between the dash and the windscreen

and the VIN numbers are also marked on the chassis in the right side.

You can see the number turning the wheel to the right and looking at the chassis rectangular section where the radiator is mounted.

They are on the vertical side of the structure.

Hope this help.

Thank you Giorgio, I will gone to check this week.

One year ago, I saw two S2 and the both had the vin number stamped on the chassis in the rear compartment (throught a rectangular cutting), that's the reason of my question !

Here's an exemple (its another red S2 )
