[DML] Re: VIN number on frame

All frames I have seen have a small plate welded in the left rear
frame rail in the engine compartment. There's a number on this plate,
but it doesn't have any direct correlation with the VIN of the car. As
David T. mentioned, we have a partial list of VIN's that includes the
engine and gearbox number. I don't recall at this time ever seeing any
list that also shows the frame number. 

I have seen a number of frames where there was a handwritten number
applied to the rear frame extension underneath the impact absorber.
Sometimes this written on a piece of tape applied in the same
position. It's usually the last 4 or 5 digits of the VIN or within a
couple numbers of it.
