1972 Pick up VIN help!

1972 Chevy Pick UP - VIN help needed.
Will someone with an unmolested 72 Chevy pick up please photograph the location (and style) of their VIN plate and post it or PM Me with it. You are more then welcome to obscure the serial number if you have any concerns etc.
We have just bought a 72 with VIN plate issues. Here in Ontario Canada we can purchase a 'sellers kit' that lists the current and past owners, confirms the full vin number and is an assurance that the vehicle is not 'stolen' or has any leins against it. We also get the 'ownership' for the vehicle which also confiirms the number and the registered owner. The frame number matches the VIN on the ownership but there is NO correct factory vin plate on the truck.
We were at a car show on the weekend and there were no 72's at the show and I know that they styles and placement of plates changed occasionally over the years. The two 69's that were there both had two plates affixed as in the attached photo on the 'strike pillar' of the door frame. (Not my truck so I obscured the vin.)
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Here's the VIN plate on my 72 Fremont, CA K20. It's located near the bottom of the driver side rear door jamb.

Re: 1972 Pick up VIN help!

Thank you for that post. By the look of it the plate is right above the body seam where the sill plate meets the upright. That is quite different from the Canadian built 69.

If any "Canadian built 72 pick up truck owners" are reading this, can you either confirm yours is the same as Mike (Asheville) 's 72 OR post what yours is like?!?
Thanks

BTW: I have just got off the phone with the Insurance Bureau of Canada and have the paperwork sent in to get a VIN plate replacement. I understand that the VIN plate they attach is not identical to the original but it is legal and does the job! I will post the results of that once I know!
