[DML] Re: VIN number on frame

There is a plate on the left rear frame extension under the rear
pontoon. It is a Frame Number and does not correspond directly with
the vin. DMCH has a cardfile that did correlate the frame #'s with
vins for early vins. One of their future projects is to publish it. I
am told lack of manpower is the reason such projects as this are not
done. You have to realize DMCH is in business primaraly to turn a
profit so they cannot do a lot of projects that do not directly
produce income. Another anomaly is that the vin does not correlate
with the motor or the transmission. I find this a little surprising,
in the US all manufacturers, since the early 70's, had to identify
major components with the vin. Strange that DMC did not have to
comply. At this time there is NO WAY to know if an engine, frame, or
transmission is origional to the car or not.
