    hi,

    are there more places for hidden vin numers on a 73 camaro then on the firewall ?
    i also read alot that is not the same number as the vin, but only a body number ?
    still need to check the numbers papers are not here at the moment.

    i see also a number in my left inner wheelhouse but that is another number.

    It will be a partial VIN. The year The place built L or N and the last series is the sequence off the line.

    Yes. The trim tag does not match though. I have heard that the other places are on the sub frame rail also but have not looked my-self to verify. I'm sure there is info on this site about where others may be. The stamp pad on the engine block in front of pass head and the transmission if original will have a pad as well. Just have to look for it. Hope someone will chime in to give more info. There are folks here that are walking encyclopedia's

    Nothing VIN on a subframe, at least not on a 70. Maybe by 73, but I doubt it. There is a date code on the sub directly under the drivers door facing to the outside of the car. By the back subframe bolt.
