1970 Vin Plate location

Could someone take some measurements of where the holes for the vin plate on a 1970 pickup should be? �� I just need the position down from the latch indentation.

Thanks, is that a 71 or 72 you measured? The vin plate for a 70 is higher up than a 71 or 72

Re: 1970 Vin Plate location

Yes, I did measure my '72. I never thought about that. I guess the jamb vent makes 71-
/72s lower. I just checked a cab I have but it looks like it's a '69. Sorry for giving bad info.

Re: 1970 Vin Plate location

I measured 1-7/16" from the edge of the latch indentation down to the center of the left rivet

Re: 1970 Vin Plate location

If you take the vin plate off for paint where do you find those funny rivets to
replace it?

Re: 1970 Vin Plate location

Where are the VIN locations? I tried to register my vehicle today at DMV and was told I needed to have 2 VIN locations. I could only find the VIN plate on the door...

Re: 1970 Vin Plate location

There are 2 full VINs: metal tag and SPID in the glovebox. There is a partial VIN on the frame rail topside in the vicinity of the steering box.
EDIT: Would use the partial frame VIN only if the SPID didn't exist or the gb door had been changed. Also - actually check the frame VIN first if you're gonna let them see it - might be embarrassing if you learned you had a cab or frame swap in front of the little ol DMV lady.
