58 Frame number location ???

Postby Matt Durkin » Sun Dec 03, 2017 1:02 am

The G80 I'm very very slowly rebuilding is desperately seeking my attention.
My next job when I can get over to where it is, is to reluctantly try to take back the paint/powder coating to expose a frame number.
I have been in touch with the dating officer via club, I'm advised that the engine number looks like it's possibly not a factory stamped number which concerns me as I'm hoping to get some sort of original ID info or even any history.
So, my question is, is there a consensus of opinion where I should try cleaning back first in order to retrieve said frame number.
It's believed to be a '58.
Thank you in advance of any replies. 👍
