    Hi
    On 1971 camaro the hidden vin located by heater box is it full vin or partial? Also is there any other hidden vin on the car?
    And the numbers on front passenger side inner frame it's the date, month, year, plant and shift is stamped correct?

    Thank you

    It’s a partial. Will start with a 1 for 71, then either an N or L depending on plant, then sequential. My 70 Van Nuys Z also has one below the heater box.

    Like Buddy mentioned above, stamp on firewall behind heater box is just a partial VIN but those numbers should match your VIN on dash. No other hidden VIN's.
    Stamp on front sub-frame is a date code. nothing to do with VIN but it should predate the cowl tag.

    Maybe not.... I've had 3 of these cars where the firewall was gone in the heater box area due to rust issues. This hidden vin is good to know where it is so you can determine if a car has been VIN changed though.
