I am trying to find out what year C3 my buddy has me working on. A little history in case some have forgotten or just joined in. The car has a 77 VIN on the a-pillar, but the body is definitely a 78 or 79. I tried to figure out the engine wiring last night and I can't because I need to know what year it is. So my question is this.....does anyone know of the approximate location of the VIN that is stamped on the frame rails? I crawled under the rear last night and cant find it after the axle on the frame. Mind you, the car is on a trailer for the time being, and I need to know where to look so I can jack it up on the trailer (properly secured to keep from falling off). Please help so I can get on with finishing this thing up!!!
I'm told that it is on the driver's side behind the rear wheel on top of the rail. I say "I'm told", because I went looking for mine and couldn't find it. At very least, you will need a mirror and a flashlight to see/read it.
